In 1971, Earl and Margaret Beck began Parkland Nurseries, a seasonal nursery business of 40 acres as a retirement hobby, which soon became the first garden centre in Red Deer, Alberta. In 1982, the business became a year-round operation encompassing greenhouses, a six acre outdoor plant area, landscape design services and garden centre. In addition, Parkland’s gift shop carries a vast array of giftware, home décor and fashion accessories including an extensive Christmas shop.
Over one million plants move through the greenhouses and six acre outdoor sales area each year. Giftware and home décor, fashion, Christmas decorations and courses are ever growing the year-round nature of the business.
In addition to sharing their knowledge with gardeners old and young, the Parkland team donate to over 40 worthwhile local causes and charities annually, while staff regularly volunteers at public events throughout the year.
