Ananda Landscapes Welcomes Back Colin Willis
Colin Willis returns to the Ananda Landscapes crew for his second season, working under Senior Foreman David Percy
July 18, 2011 (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) – Ron Jones, President of Ananda Landscapes, announced today that the company is happy to welcome Colin Willis, who will be working underneath Senior Foreman David Percy, back for his second season.
Though still only a young man, Colin already has six years of landscaping experience under his belt. He is currently heading into his second year of the Environmental Horticultural Diploma program at Olds College, with a major in Landscape Management; the curriculum of this particular program combines a sound knowledge of horticulture along with technical skills. An area of particular interest for Willis has been expanding his understanding of over 100 ornamental plants and trees that are native to Southern Alberta.
Willis is excited to bring this newfound knowledge and his growing skill set back to Ananda. “I enjoy landscaping because I am able to create amazing spaces and legacies,” says Willis. “I am excited to be back working for Ron and Ananda because it is a workplace where creativity and fun are encouraged.”
Jones appreciates Willis’ understanding of the creative side of the landscaping business. “Colin is a focused young man who understands and enjoys the work that Ananda does – creating possibilities for our clients.” Jones originally wanted Willis on a different team but as soon as Senior Foreman David Percy learned that he was coming back he insisted that Willis join his team.
“I wanted to train him further because I see so much potential in this young man,” said Percy. “He is the perfect right-hand man.”
