Peas on Earth Certified Organic Garden was officially founded by Eric and Ruby Chen in 2000. With their interest in sustainable and community-minded farming, Eric and Ruby combined their expertise in farming and business to create Peas on Earth. The goal – “Growing For Our Children” – signifies our operation’s goal to provide a source of health and nutrition in an environmentally conscious manner. By growing and eating organic, we believe that our community can avoid many physical and environmental issues associated with chemically treated and genetically modified foods.
Operating on 65 acres of land and a 5,000 square foot facility located in Sturgeon County, Peas on Earth is proud to operate locally. We have over 30 years of participation at the Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market and the St. Albert Outdoor Farmers’ Market. However, we’re always looking for ways to improve and better accommodate our customers, so we’ve started appearing at more locations throughout the past few years. Bountiful Farmers’ Market, Grapevine Deli, Amaranth Whole Foods, Organic Box and SPUD are some of the places where people throughout the city can access us.
Our business would not be complete without our valuable and diverse Peas on Earth team. Our operation is made possible by the variety of personnel that work in the fields and at the markets – this include many long-time staff members, a handful of energetic high school and university students, as well as Eric and Ruby’s two children- Jenelle and Ayden. Regardless of their age or role, everyone at Peas on Earth works hard to provide for the community that we all live in and love.
We thank you for your support, as our customers are what motivate us everyday. If you have any feedback on our operations or if you’d just like to come by to chat, please come to visit us at our market locations, or contact us through one of the methods provided. Thanks again!
