Growlicious food gardens

2018-02-07 06:00

WITH the district having been blessed with widespread, welcome rain, much that has been dormant for many seasons has sprung to life.

Plants of all types are in full spate of growth and gardeners are being hard pushed to keep ahead with the tasks of mowing, weeding and planting. On Tuesday, February 13, Greytown Garden Club is hosting Mary James of Little Elephant Training Centre for Early Education (Letcee) with an inspirational presentation of what is being achieved by local women in food gardens planted to provide vegetables for the (Letcee) monitored early education centres. As meals are provided daily at the various Early Education outlets in the area, local women identified the need to “grow their own” to supplement the meals being prepared for the children.

Out of this developed the concept of food gardens attached to the (Letcee) pre-school centres.

As this meeting is also the annual general meeting, members and guests are reminded that registration starts at 9 am and the meeting will begin promptly at 9.30 am.

Members are reminded that subs for 2018-2019 are due. Please encourage friends and newcomers to Greytown to come along to enjoy the camaraderie, experience and generosity of fellow gardeners.

The venue for this meeting is Insingisi Indigenous Nursery, home and extensive wildlife garden of Keith and Jen Cowie on the D220, which is off the Mooi River Road.

Please take a chair and wear comfortable walking shoes. Please contact Jen Cowie at 082 921 2134 with any inquiries.
