We wish to recognize Diane for not only her many contributions to the VHS but also her expert teaching, writing, mentoring, and design and consulting activities, which extend far into the larger gardening community. In addition to her long service with Victoria Parks and the Horticulture Centre of the Pacific, her impact has been and still is far-reaching, as she continues to volunteer in countless ways. She also brings her generosity, joyful sense of humour and great fun to everything she does.
