This week Clara chats with Jay Lowe of Jaqueline Gardens Ltd. in Niton Junction in NW Alberta. Jay's family started growing cut flowers in a greenhouse way out in Zone 2 in Niton Junction 30 years ago! He shares with us the history of their pioneering Alberta greenhouse cut flower business.
He no longer grows cut flowers, rather he focuses on bedding plants and is looking forward to retirement, but generously shares many details of how they made a successful business out of growing cut flowers in this rural part of Alberta, as well as what caused them to stop growing greenhouse cuts.
Our theme music was composed and performed by Callum, Heather's son, and the challenging job of audio editing was completed by the multi-talented Laura Eccleston.
