By March 30, 2011Sustainable Landscaping

Terra Nova was recently honored with the 2011 Gold Award in the Santa Cruz Weekly’s readers survey. We also won this award in 2007 and 2009—so 2011 is a charm! Our long history of providing not only excellent landscaping services but also doing so in harmony with nature is truly recognized in our community. It continues to be the driving force behind what we do for our clients every day.

Funny thing is I forgot about voting for the winners in the readers survey or even to tell anyone about it, so it was an extra fun surprise to learn that we won.

Thank you Santa Cruz Weekly readers!

We appreciate it and we will do our best to earn your votes for the 2012 Gold Awards.

—Ken Foster and all of us at Terra Nova

About Ken

In 1967, 10-year-old Ken Foster read The Secret Garden by Frances Burnett. It took him a whole summer to read, but it inspired him to see gardening as a celebration of our coexistence with nature. In 1985, he took on an apprenticeship at the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden, and there he discovered his passion. He founded Terra Nova Ecological Landscaping in 1988, and has dedicated his life to caring for the environment and community through sustainable landscaping. He also teaches a permaculture class at Cabrillo College. When he’s not busy with designing, installing, and maintaining ecological landscapes, Ken can be found riding his bike around town, or making mandalas out of salvaged herbs that would otherwise have been sent to the landfill.
