For the Love of Life

Come in Today for the Best of the Season

Arch Greenhouses has over 250 varieties of plants, many unique to our one-of-a-kind-in-Alberta growing venture

sustainable

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.

responsible

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.

unmatched value

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.
