Maple Ridge resident top garden communicator
Mike Lascelle, a local nursery manager, gardening author and columnist for the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows News, was honoured as the Garden Communicator of the Year by the B.C. Landscape and Nursery Association last weekend.
The Garden Communicator of the Year award is presented annually for outstanding communication to the public on garden and landscape topics by a British Columbian writer, radio or television commentator, and artist or communications specialist.
Any communicator is eligible to be nominated for this award by any BCLNA member, the BCLNA executive committee, or by the association’s staff team – each of whom rely heavily on volunteerism to guide and fulfill the association’s many endeavors.
