The countdown is on for our official Local Table launch event! On Thursday 20th December 2012 from 5:30pm in St Peter’s Hall, Paekakariki. Entry by koha.
The whole village is invited to kick start the festive season together with a shared potluck meal. BYO homegrown meal, kaimoana etc or support our local foodies – deli pizza or fish & chips are all good too (BYO picnic utensils). During the meal you will hear an introduction to the Local Table competition (to take place in June 2013) followed by a Q&A session and handing out of info packs.
There will then be a talk by local resident, and expert green fingers, Hannah Zwartz on creating abundance in your garden and planning your harvest.
Any skill level is welcome, and kids can enter too, as there will be a children’s section in the competition -ultimately it’s all about participation and learning new skills.
And to wrap up the evening we hope to show a film!
