Partner Spotlights are our way to shine a light on some of our amazing local partners across the country and give them a platform to tell their unique stories. Keri, the owner at The Backyard and Compost Corner, in Prince Albert, wants to share hers!
Tell us about your business (who do you cater to/what do you offer):
We help the people of Prince Albert and area be part of creating a healthy and beautiful environment. Whether it’s Composting for you, our zero waste or sustainable home goods, helping you to create beautiful yards or gardens with our workshops, bulk landscaping supplies, soil amendments, and garden decor. Or if you are looking to create a healthy and beautiful outdoor space just outside of your own backdoor, wanting to help create a more beautiful and healthy earth we can help.
What is one thing you would like people to know about your business?
I love to talk to people about gardening, permaculture and composting and everything environmentally friendly. So if you have questions, please ask! We might have a product for you, be able to bring something in, know where you can get it, or just give you some tips or tricks!
What made you want to get into business here?
I grew up on a farm, playing in the dirt, gardening, and growing food. Gardening is deep in my blood. When I moved to the City I realized that not everyone knew how to do things like Compost, or Garden and I wanted to help! Plus, Prince Albert and Saskatchewan in general are wonderful places to grow up and raise a family. Our outdoor spaces are already so beautiful, you can’t help but want to be part of it.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
My favourite part is when a customer shares how our products or services have helped them either grow a better garden or that they feel so good about the amount of waste they’ve been able to divert from the landfill. I love to help people and I’m so glad that our products and services do just that!
What local business would you like to see on GetintheLoop?

Is there a community cause or event that you support that you would like to give a shoutout to?
I would love to give a shoutout to Jessy’s Garden
When you’re not working/running your business what is your favourite thing to do?
Spending time outside, either gardening, hiking or just taking a nap under a tree. If I’m not outside I’m probably absorbed in a sci-fi movie, book or tv show.
