Taimi - Pronounced "Tie - mee"; A Finnish word meaning young tree or sapling. When people from Finland settled the area northeast of Rocky Mountain House, AB in the early 1900's, there had been a fire that had burnt most of the trees. Since most of the trees were then small, young trees, 'Taimi' seemed fitting. The Taimi area had a one-room school house for many years before it was upgraded into Taimi Community Hall.
Soil - Soil is a mixture of minerals, organic matter, gases, liquids, and organisms that together support life. Soil contains 90% of the life on Earth. Much of this life is in the form of plants, animals, bacteria, fungus, ciliates, arthropods, flagellates, amoebas and countless other forms of microbes. Soil is the basis for almost all living things on earth.
So then, what is dirt? Dirt is what's under your fingernails. It is soil that is out of place in our world – whether tracked inside by shoes or on our clothes. Dirt is also soil that has lost the characteristics that give it the ability to support life – it is “dead.”
Projects - Let's not pigeon-hole ourselves by naming a company after what we think we might do in the future. We would prefer to leave the door open for many exciting ventures by specializing in "Projects".
