St Leon Gardens was started in 1979 in the beautiful little town of St.Leon situated in the heart of Pembina Valley 150 km south west of Winnipeg. It all started as a youth entrepreneurial project with the objective of keeping the kids in town busy & to teach the fundamental rules of running a small business. The beginnings were very humble and idealistic. We started our youth project with a small 15 x 30 ft. greenhouse, a 4 acre plot of garden, and 20 young ambitious entrepreneurs ranging from 10 to 16 years old. For a few summers, things were working quite smoothly.
