Canada Day Parade

For our 20th Anniversary celebration, we are going to have a presence in the Canada Day Parade July 1st at 10:00 am. A banner will be leading our entry of wagons filled with flowers. We also have seed packets to hand out to the spectators attending the parade.

Community Recognition Program

The Community Recognition Program began last year with 35 recipients and we hope to expand the program again this year. Businesses and non-profits, in urban or rural Strathcona County, who make their outdoor space beautiful qualify for recognition. They receive a door/window decal and a letter of appreciation.

We ask for your help in identifying any businesses or non-profit organizations who have added planters or have a bed outside their door. or 780 464-8287


Front Yard Recognition Program

Our Front Yard Recognition Program runs from June 18 to July 11. Last year saw a huge expansion to 300 nominations from 120 in 2017. We hope to continue its growth this year. If you would love to see great yards, we can use help putting signs in yards during the program.

Please contact Beth Hunt to volunteer! or 587 990 -5378. Nominate your neighbours at or 780 464-8287
