New Executive Director Announced

21 Nov 2017 8:09 AM | Julia Dupuis (Administrator)

SOUL would like to welcome Sundaura Alford as our new Executive Director. Sundaura is an Accredited Practitioner and owner/designer of A Cultivated Art Inc. in Ottawa. Sundaura strives to bring sustainability, along with functionality and beauty, to all her landscapes. Sundaura is active within the Ottawa gardening community as well as with Landscape Ontario and willing to bring this experience to SOUL.

A note from Sundaura:

“While I hadn't been looking for work beyond what I do through my Landscape Design business, when I saw in the fall newsletter that SOUL was seeking a part time Executive Director I decided that it was time to put together an updated résumé.

I applaud the vision and mission of SOUL and I feel that my extensive experience in the horticultural industry, along with my recently completed six years as an active board member in the Ottawa Chapter of Landscape Ontario Horticultural Trade Association, gives me a combination of skills, experience and contacts that will be helpful in moving SOUL through the next stage of development.

The wider adoption of a more sustainable standard for landscaping and gardening within educational programs, governmental policy and the green industry over the next few years is something that I believe to be very important. Working with SOUL will allow me to assist in bringing about this change to a greater extent than purely through my work designing sustainable landscapes.

I'm very pleased that the board has decided to offer me the position and I am looking forward to working with the volunteers and members of SOUL over the coming months and years.”

Welcome to SOUL Sundaura, we look forward to working with you too!
