An introductory workshop in French and European traditional dance will be held tonight in Waitati. Dance teacher Kate Grace is keen to give an impression of the diversity of European dances for smooth movers who want to extend their dance vocabulary. ‘French dancing (and beyond)’ will be held at the Waitati hall tonight from 6 to 8 pm. Admission by koha.

A summer pruning workshop by Jason Ross of Sutherland Nurseries will be held tomorrow.  From 1 to 5pm participants will learn hands-on the practice of summer pruning of fruit trees and berries. Cost is $18, or $16 for members of Waitati Edible Gardens Group (The Weggies).

It’s the first Sunday of the month this weekend and that means the Seacliff market will be buzzing from 11am on the Coast Road. There’s art and craft, bric-a-brac, produce and preserves – plus music and great coffee.  Locals know it’s the place to get great bargains, so if you haven’t been yet, make sure to get there this Sunday.

The Blueskin Bay Garden Club’s first foray of the year is a tour of Valerie and Mike Fay’s hillside property next Thursday at 7pm. There will be a particular focus on the vegetable garden. The event will also include a presentation by Val on her work at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary.
