We are committed to producing the plants you love in an environmentally-sustainable way. We use predatory insects such as midges, mites, wasps – and the occasional spider – as part of our program to reduce pesticide usage.
Our greenhouse is owned and operated by Arch Enterprises, a non-profit organization that provides innovative program services and employment opportunities to adults with developmental disabilities.
We occupy a unique space in the Edmonton gardening community. Large enough to offer a wide variety of seasonal and perennial plants, small enough that we take the time to provide our customers with personal attention and guidance.
Wild Tea Making Workshop
Ever wondered what the difference is between black, green and herbal teas? What is that SCOBY in Kombucha? Can you pick things to make your own teas at home?
Learn the differences between some of the common teas, the principles of making Kombucha, how to harvest, dry and store various plants for both social and medicinal teas and learn some of the properties of different blends. Have a cup while discussing and looking at some native plants that make wonderful teas in Arch Greenhouse’s lovely indoor setting.
Top off your afternoon with a tea making session including loose-leaf native plant teas and bring some of your teabag creations home along with a SCOBY starter to make your very own Kombucha!
Additional loose-leaf teas, potted plants, seeds and more available to peruse and purchase as well.
