Our club had a great Kindred Day on 3 March in the Waitati Hall, where we hosted 100 keen gardeners from far and wide. Our speakers, Val Fay on the Orokonui Ecosanctuary and Daphne Henderson on Seacliff Hospital history, were most interesting and received rousing applause. Visits were made to the Opeke Track, Village Potager, Blueskin Nursery, the ecosanctuary and the grounds at Seacliff. Our raffles and plant stall were well supported and our visitors all seemed to enjoy their outing. Many thanks to Blueskin Nursery and Cafe, Mainland Poultry, Commodore Motels and Car Rentals and the ecosanctuary.

We will be having a plant stall at the Blueskin A&P Clearing Sale on 31 March. Our meeting for April will be held on Thursday 12 April at 7:30pm in the Blueskin Library. Our speaker is Dylan Norfield who works at the Dunedin Botanic Garden. The evening will conclude with supper, a raffle and our usual bloom and vege/produce competition. All are welcome to come along and join us. Any queries to Glenys 482 2640 or Lyn 482 2896.

In conclusion we would like to especially thank Ainsley Heather for presenting the hall so nicely for our Kindred Day.
