Xeriscaping is gardening with the natural environmental conditions you live in rather than fighting against them. Enhances the value of your home, reduces water use, saves time and money, and eliminates pesticide/herbicide use. Create a beautiful sustainable landscape and habitat for birds and butterflies while protecting your family’s health and the environment. Join us for Gardening with Nature - Xeriscape Workshop April 11th.
Jos Van Hage is the 2014 Recipient of the Alice Wolczuk Memorial Award.
The Alice Wolczuk Memorial Award is given to recognize gardeners who have made a significant contribution in the field of horticulture in Prince George. It is given to individuals whose efforts have be involved in educating gardeners or have had a significant impact on the horticultural knowledge for gardeners in the area.
We felt Jos fell into this group due to his long standing commitment to running a horticultural outlet where members of the community can seek his advice (which he freely gives). He has also had a radio program and a regular article in the Citizen which have provided information and advice to the community at large.
Jos was given this award at the DDBGS Volunteer Appreciation BBQ August 24th.
