Play, unplugged, with Manderley and Come Alive Outside!

At Manderley, we know that lawns provide a safe space to play to promote healthy levels of activity, which is why we’re happy to be partnering once again with Come Alive Outside for their Green Street Challenge!

The Green Street Challenge is designed to give communities the opportunity to celebrate the importance of outdoor, unstructured play through the creation of temporary parks in communities across North America using natural grass

The event is put on by Come Alive Outside, a non-profit organization that collaborates with partners in the landscape industry in order to get people off the couch and back outside in communities across North America.

This growing program has 10 stops in Canada this year, and Manderley is proud to be supplying our Less Water Sod for the Green Street Challenge in Calgary for their 3rd annual event!

If you live in the Calgary area, this is an event you and your family don’t want to miss! Head down to Inglewood Sunfest to take part in this awesome initiative and get your family back outside!


When: Saturday, August 3rd 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Where: Main Street, Inglewood, Calgary

Who: Family and Friends of the Calgary Community (Manderley too!)

We’re also making our Manderley Less Water Sod from the event grounds available free for pick up after the festival. It’s first come, first served, so be sure to stick around until the end of the day to pick up Manderley Less Water Sod for your own green spaces, and to keep the fun going! Remember that sod is living and perishable product, so you’ll want to install your sod when you get home that evening.
