Two of our team members, Dillon Mennie and Kevin O’Connor, competed in the BC Skills Competition on April 18th. We’re very pleased to announce that they took first place and gold medals in Landscape Gardening! Congratulations to Kevin and Dillon, they demonstrated their superior skills, followed a detailed plan, and worked within a tight timeline. With their top finish in the Provincial competition, they are eligible to represent BC in the National Skills Competition this May in Edmonton.
