Non-Profit groups in the Hamlet of Grande Cache and surrounding Co-ops and Enterprises are eligible for an incentive ($/bag) for the hand pulling of scentless chamomile (Tripleurospermum perforatum) plants.
Bags will be provided and dropped off at the MD of Greenview Grande Cache Agricultural Services/Beautification Office, located at 10310 -97th Street (by Grande Cache Operations Building).
