Rob had the opportunity to work with the Edmonton Valley Zoo in helping them build an “Enrichment Garden” for the animals. It was during this experience that Rob fully understood how important interacting with plants can be for animals, not just people.
Whether it’s wolves rubbing on lavender to mask their scent, tigers playing with pumpkins, or Lucy the Elephant satisfying her sweet tooth by eating stevia it was clear that these interactions aided in improving the physical and psychological well being of the animals.
School Gardens Project
Inspired by the natural curiosity of children when they interact with nature, Salisbury Greenhouse partnered with 14 schools in the Edmonton area to build each one their very own school yard garden.
The goal of this project was to provide school children with a useful educational tool, while encouraging good nutritional habits and a love of gardening in the next generation of gardeners.
Partners In Parks
Salisbury at Enjoy plans to support the Partners in Parks programs for many years to come.
