If you’ve ever admired the covers and colored photographs in recent Gardener’s Gate issues, you will find that many of these have been contributed by Wilf Maul, who takes delight in sharing the beauty of his acreage just west of Edmonton. Wilf and his wife, Brigitte, purchased a “cow pasture” in 1970 and turned it into a magnificent oasis they call home. Flowing waterfalls, ponds, castles, a mountain, and copious numbers of colourful flower beds adorn their property.
Since becoming a member and an avid supporter of the EHS in the 1990’s, Wilf has opened his heart and his home to us through the Open Gardens program, and to other garden-lovers as well. One will also see Wilf snapping photographs at EHS functions, as well as for Front Yards in Bloom and the EHS Archives. Wilf seems to have an endless supply of time, talent, knowledge and plants to share with fellow gardeners. He has won garden competitions, photography competitions and was the first to receive the EHS Gardener of the Year Award in 2008.
We are delighted to recognize Wilf Maul as the Volunteer of the Month, July, 2014.
Wilf received a $20 gift card for Flowers on 50th, as well as a Volunteer of the Month certificate.
