Gardens pioneers honoured with Award
of Merit 2013
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.
