Over 20 people came to the first meeting of garden enthusiasts at a coffee morning last month in the Patumahoe Butchers shop café. Included were both long term residents of the district as well as more recent additions to the community .
The idea behind the group is to provide an opportunity for people to get together (once a month) socialize and talk gardening ,plants and many other related topics.
We’ve given our group the name “Village Planters” and anyone is welcome to come and relax ,share ideas, bring your gardening problems, talk gardening and learn from each other .
We have started a web page which ,in time, will contain handy hints and details from our meetings
The next get together will again be at the Café 10am Wednesday July 2nd Fiona will devise a fun quiz and would like people to bring a piece of a plant – anything will do .
So for a fun morning ,bring yourselves a friend or two and $ for your morning tea .
For any queries Please Contact Fiona @ 236- 5989 (Weekdays) 235-8301 evenings or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
