A New Honour for “Love Every Leaf” Subject
Congratulations to Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, who has been promoted to Officer of the Order of Canada “for her influence and contributions as a landscape architect who sets new standards of excellence through her environmentally responsible landscape designs.”
Members of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects will have the opportunity to hear her speak at the organization’s 75th anniversary conference this week -where I too will be speaking.
CSLA member or not, you can read all about Cornelia and her work in Love Every Leaf. Don’t I wish that my late father-in-law, Humphrey Carver – a CSLA founding member who was keynote speaker at the 50th anniversary CSLA – could know about the connection that has been forged between his old friend Cornelia and me!
