Bill and Hilda Friesen moved to Dunvegan in the fall of 1952. They and their six children quickly became accustomed to the hard work and long hours required to plant, water, fertilize, hoe, and harvest vegetable crops. The three sons began to take on more of the responsibility and purchased more land along the Peace River for vegetable production. Although many crops are seeded directly into the ground in the spring, some require being started earlier in a greenhouse and then being transplanted out when the weather is warm enough.
The Friesens learned from their experience growing vegetable seedlings in the greenhouse to grow bedding plants and perennials from seed and later from cuttings. Over the next half century, the three brothers opened and operated several market gardens and gardens centres in the Peace country.
Fifty years after Bill and Hilda Friesen moved to the Peace River valley at Dunvegan, the second generation and their sons purchased Garden Valley Greenhouses, on the western city limits of Edmonton.
Third generation Brock Friesen moved to the new location on Garden Valley Road to manage the greenhouse and garden centre in 2002.
Creekside Home and Garden, an independent company owned by Brock Friesen and family, continuing the tradition of growing, serving, and sharing our passion for plants, home decor and more!
Creekside Home and Garden is situated alongside a meandering creek just outside the city limits of Edmonton.
