Chicago, IL, February 27, 2015 – The Illinois Landscape Contractors Association Awards Committee honored A Safe Haven Landscaping Thursday, February 26, 2015 with two Excellence in Landscape GOLD Awards for its Wacker Drive Planters and Medians and Michigan Avenue—Chicago’s Cultural Mile planters. The program recognizes and promotes the skills and expertise of member landscape professionals, and annually honors ‘The Best in Show’. A Safe Haven was celebrated and its work highlighted at the Awards Night at the iLandscape Show on at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association and I’d like to thank everyone who was a part of the collaboration between the CDOT and ASH Landscaping for making such an incredible undertaking possible. Far beyond a point of beauty in Chicago’s renowned urban landscape, the planters represent true innovation in the field of social enterprise, as ASH Landscaping provides year-round employment for hundreds of formerly at-risk individuals, enabling them to rebuild their lives with dignity and purpose. ” said A Safe Haven President and Co-Founder, Neli Vazquez Rowland.
