With a passion to beautify his yard and the community, Hans Cluver was honoured last week with the Heartland Beautification Committee’s Stettler Beautification Award.

“I love gardening and I hate weeds,” said Cluver, who diligently volunteers for the Stettler Community Gardens and takes pride in his own yard and garden.

“I was raised in Germany on a vegetable farm and I’ve always enjoyed gardening.”

Cluver was selected among three other volunteers suggested by the beautification committee in the fourth year of the award.

“We identify people who make a difference to help make their yard and community look better, in hopes that it encourages other people, starting in their own yards,” Spencer said.

“He always volunteers at the community gardens and helps people grow better gardens, with his knowledge and advice.

“Hans came to see me about the community gardens two years ago to help out.”

Spencer and the committee appreciate Cluver’s experience to enhance local gardens.

“We want to help expand that to teach more people about gardening,” Spencer said.

Last year’s winners were Ray and Evelyn O’Hara.
