For the third year in a row, Kwantlen horticulture students donated their time and skills to the Yule family home in Coquitlam.
The project, in partnership with Cornerstone Home Team (a local church) was based on the American show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
The deserving family was sent to Whistler for a week, according to a Kwantlen media press release, “while the crew spent that time completely renovating the Yule house, which was in serious disrepair due to all the time the family spent helping others in need.”
In total, the School of horticulture donated $3,000 worth of garden plants, trees, sod, garden mulch, top soil, trucking services, kids playhouse and play set, and other horticulture supplies for the Yule family yard makeover.
