Building lifetime hail/wind resistant hobby greenhouses for urban yards, acreages and farms.
Created, owned, fully operated by Edmontonians investing in the local economy. We build structures that help gardeners/food producers get a jump on their food-producing season and extend it into autumn as well which helps with food security and self-sufficiency. Our little greenhouses last many years (19 years and counting since our first customer) so this is not a disposable product. Our greenhouses are not dependent on the grid. Vents openers are heat activated and there are additional manual venting options that also welcome pollinators. We use our own backyard greenhouse as a demonstration site for soil amendment through year-round composting and passive thermal heat applications and rainwater use.
There is minimal waste creation during our building process as well. A full 35% of the shop in which we build the greenhouses was built (by us and immediate family – yes, even digging holes for concrete supports) using waste diverted materials. 95% of our equipment is second-hand refurbished and reclaimed.
