The Kincardine District Secondary School recycled garden received more recognition last week.

Carol Blake, who spearheaded the project, and KDSS students Johann Hack and Stephen Lewis, were on hand at the Landscape Ontario Expo Trade Show Tuesday (Oct. 19) at the Toronto Congress Centre, to receive the "Green for Life" award of excellence.

Joining them were Angie Hutnick, Kincardine horticulturist; and Lisa Robertson-Taylor of the Tiverton Communities in Bloom historical committee.

"We introduced horticulture, landscape design and various aspects of the greenhouse business to the students," said Blake.

Tony DiGiovanni, executive director of Landscape Ontario, presented them with a plaque, while Lee Rozon of Ontario Communities in Bloom and Denis Flanagan of Landscape Ontario public relations, presented them with a poster.

The recycled garden won the Ontario Communities in Bloom community award of excellence in September.
