Urban planting
Incredible Edibles is a project that incorporates edible plants into public landscaping. The planting bed at the east entrance to Morinville includes chamomile, zucchini, Nasturtium (edible flowers), turnips, onions, cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes, celery, spinach, Swiss chard, carrots and coriander. This is one of four main locations for the project. Other locations include Public Works, the flower bed behind the Town Office, and beside the Fish and Game Clubhouse. There are fruit trees at Fish and Game, outside the gazebo opposite the Bob Foster Extreme Sports Park, Saskatoons at the trail entrance to South Glens and cherries and plums on the grass triangle beside the trail and Storm water lift station. Additionally, there are concrete planters that have herbs in them on 100 Avenue.

28 plate
Not many slogans have been used on Alberta plates. The vehicle registration plate from 1928 on the 1928 Model A Ford at the Musee Morinville Museum has no slogan. The first slogan on an Alberta licence plate was Drive Safely on the 1940 plate, replaced two years later with simply Canada. That was subsequently removed. In Canada’s Centennial year plates carried the words 1867-1967 along with a stylized maple leaf. The slogan Wild Rose Country first appeared in the 1973-74 series of reflective plates on top of the plate. Passenger plates were blue. From 1977-1980 the plates were black on yellow. The slogan moved tot he bottom of the plate in 1983-84. In 1988 a souvenir plate for the XV Winter Olympic Games in Calgary was also issued.
