Congratulations to Mike Johnson and Connie Rusu of Georgina Garden Centre in Keswick for receiving the 2008 Georgina Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for a large business.

The Business Excellence Award recognizes Georgina Garden Centre for providing its community with an exceptional retail garden centre and landscaping service. The award also praises the garden centre for its Steward of the Earth program, which supplies and educates local students about the benefits of trees to the environment.

Georgina Garden Centre has become an environmental leader in the local business community, and recently made a decision to go chemical-free, eliminating all synthetic pesticides and herbicides. In accepting the award, Johnson praised his entire team at Georgina Garden Centre for their hard work and dedication to make the business a leader in the community.
