Mediterranean Flair for Creativity Leanne

With a Mediterranean background, Toula Prins has a flair for creativity combined with a focused ability to capture detail and color. Toula has been featured on Global Television, as well as in local Edmonton galleries, newspapers and magazines.

In the 1980’s, Toula enrolled in a pottery class with the Sturgeon River Pottery Guild in Gibbons. The Pottery Guild offers adult classes, kids classes, and one raku workshop per year. They also seek to serve the communities of Bon Accord and Gibbons by participating in celebrations, providing demonstrations and community projects.

It was at the Sturgeon River Pottery Guild that Toula explored various techniques and found herself more interested in hand building pottery. The project that led to her current career path was her personal inspiration to create small Greek-influenced houses as a small village to place beneath her Christmas tree. This created a buzz amongst visitors who began asking if they were available for purchase. As word began spreading, people specifically asked for miniature replicas of their family homes. Thus, her business was officially created. Using either drawings or photographs, Toula creates miniature replicas of detailed homes to be treasured now and for future generations.

The Fourth Annual Sturgeon County Bounty Leanne
The Fourth Annual Sturgeon County Bounty

Welcome to our blog!

This is an exciting time, as we are ready to launch our new website, and also get the fifth Annual Sturgeon County Bounty underway at Prairie Gardens & Adventure farm in Bon Accord on Saturday, September 28, 2013!

It has been a lot of hard work and planning for the Bounty Taste Event, but it is very rewarding to meet so many producers and business owners in the Sturgeon County area and see all of the support that exists for our local initiatives. We have many things planned for the next year, and are hoping to talk with as many local producers, processors, chefs, farms and artisans as possible to find the best fit for growing local tourism and culinary experiences. 

Please join us between 11am - 3pm  on Saturday at Prairie Gardens to experience delicious dishes prepared by our local producers and restaurants. You will be served fresh food cooked to perfection, and you should come hungry because we have A LOT of tasty options to offer!  Food tickets will be for sale ($1 each) and most vendor booths are serving dishes that are between 3-5 tickets. You will also be able to get a fantastic fall family photo taken for 5 tickets!

Saturday, September 28 is also the opening day for Prairie Gardens' Haunted Pumpkin Festival, featuring TONS of great family activities such as a petting zoo, corn maze, face painting, music and entertainment, wagon rides, and of course... the Pumpkin Cannon! 

It should be a beautiful fall day, we look forward to seeing you there!
