AGGA tour to visit Edmonton area

September 11, 2018  By Greenhouse Canada

The Alberta Greenhouse Growers Association (AGGA) will be hosting their Meet & Greet event this Thursday, September 13th. 

According to AGGA Board Member Michiel Verheul of High Q Greenhouses, the event is a great opportunity for growers, industry members and the Board of Directors to meet in person. The rest of the meetings are usually via teleconference.

To make things a little more interesting, a greenhouse tour has been included on the agenda.


“This year it’s in the Edmonton area,” says Verheul. “We start at Thiels Greenhouses in Bruderheim at 10:30 AM on September 13, 2018 and make our way via Edmonton to Sturgeon County.” Tour participants will also visit a grower with a large CSA program, a year-round retail garden centre, a vegetable greenhouse with floating rafts, a U-pick cutflower operation, a young plant producer and a seasonal retail centre.

The tour will be followed by dinner in St Albert.

For those needing accommodations, the AGGA has organized a block of rooms at the Best Western Inn at 460 St Albert Trail, St. Albert, AB T8N 5J9
Call the Best Western location at (780) 470-3800 to make a reservation under Alberta Greenhouse Growers Association or Michiel Verheul

“Does this sound great? The best is – attendance is free,” adds Verheul.

The tours are free of charge but interested parties will need to pre-register. RSVP to or call Valerie at: 780-489-1991 ext 103.
