   Gardens pioneers honoured with Award of Merit 2013

Nov. 26, 2013: Congratulations to Duncan and Bev Badger who were recently honoured with the AWARD OF MERIT presented by the Calgary Horticultural Society at a Volunteer Recognition Event held on November 26, 2013.

They were nominated in a formal process reviewed by the Board of the Calgary Horticultural Society and subsequently chosen to receive this prestigious Award.

A perpetual plaque on which their names are inscribed is now on display in the Calgary Horticultural Society office.

This once in a lifetime Award is in recognition of their long term commitment and outstanding contribution to gardens within the Province of Alberta over an extended period of time.

Specifically, this Award recognizes the planning, creation, construction and completion of our Labyrinth which involved a two year commitment of volunteer time.
