The Honourarly Life Time Award recognizes long-term members who have contributed to the strength of the Association. Landscape Manitoba's Board of Directors announced that Mr. Kurt Jensen of Jensen's Nursery and Garden Center is the 2012 recipient of this prestigious award.
Kurt immigrated from Denmark to Canada in 1957 where he met and married Elsie. Together they started a small lawn maitenance companly, operating out of their home. In 1971 they purchased a one acre lot on McGillivray Blvd and expanded the business to become a garden center, and landscaping business. In 1999 Kurt along with his daughters Tammy and Susan retired the old farm house and open a brand new garden center, and greenhouse. In 2006 they relocated to a three acre location at McGillivray Blvd and Brady Road. This new facility has contributed to Jensen's Garden Center becoming a major garden center, greenhouse, and landscaping business in the City of Winnipeg and surrounding areas. In the year 2010 they moved forward once again creating their first website, with a interactive plant search engine. They continue to work together along with their staff to proudly service the Winnipeg Area.
