Gardens

Leigh from Blenheim

I have mature raspberry canes that I would like thinned. This would be a good time to grab a few as they are just waking up. Replant them and you will have raspberries in a few weeks - just keep their roots wet in wet newspaper and not take a bucket of my soil like a person did last year.

I have mature raspberry canes that I would like thinned. This would be a good time to grab a few as they are just waking up. Replant them and you will have raspberries in a few weeks - just keep their roots wet in wet newspaper and not take a bucket of my soil like a person did last year.
These have been growing in compost stuff from Bunnings that I just put on top of my gardens - not dug in, and it has worked down about 30cm into the soil now and its rich deep and full of life, so if you want to replant it that might help.
Give me a call. Leigh 0276770087.
These will be dug up and thrown away soon so act now.

Hi Neighbours!

Have you heard about our Community Connects grants?

The grants help fund projects that promote the inclusion and contribution of older people in community life, and support communities to prepare for an ageing population.

The fund makes one-off grants of up to $15,000. The grants are open to any New Zealand council, community organisation, or registered non-profit organisation. Applications for our current funding round close on 9 October.

Our last funding round was a huge success and helped fund a range of different projects across the country, that had focuses like reducing loneliness and social isolation of older people, developing an age-friendly community plan and supporting people with dementia.

With the right planning and support, we can create environments where older people are valued, connected and able to participate in their community.

If you have an age-friendly project you are interested in getting funding for click here bit.ly...
Or if would like to learn more about how your community can become more age-friendly click here bit.ly...
