Owain Langford receives Bert Card Memorial AwardThe Richmond Hill Garden & Horticultural Society is pleased to announce that Owain Langford, a student at Seneca College, is the inaugural recipient of the Bert Card Memorial Award, providing for a bursary of $1,000 towards his tuition costs.

Owain, who emigrated to Canada from Wales in 2021, is in his third year of studies in Seneca’s Environmental Landscape Management program, which includes courses covering traditional types of landscaping, ecology, the impact humans have on the environment, and how to protect and restore natural landscapes.

Our society is committed to repeating the Bert Card Memorial Award selection and awards process in conjunction with Seneca College for the next four years.

Albert (Bert) Card is a beloved Past President of both the Richmond Hill Garden & Horticultural Society and the Ontario Horticultural Association. Upon Bert’s passing in 2022, his estate bequeathed funds to our society which have been transformed into an educational scholarship program in his name.

More information about the scholarship program and this year's recipient will be available to our society's members in the May-June 2024 edition of The Garden Post.
