Memorable Manitobans: Theodore Bosch (1905-2003)

Market gardener.

Born in Holland in 1905, he immigrated to Canada in 1925. In 1940, along with his wife Helen, he began a market garden in south St. Vital and was part of the original North End Market, growing vegetables and gladiolas. In 1951, they founded Red Valley Greenhouses and became the first chrysanthemum growers in Manitoba. He retired in 1970 and enjoyed travelling to Holland and Hawaii, as well as bowling and playing billiards. He died at Winnipeg on 31 October 2003.
