Ph: 0274937025 Valentines Day Tuesday 14th February, 2012 Sow the seeds of love ChildFund is encourag- ing New Zealanders to reconsider the tra- ditional Valentine s Day bouquet, and sow the seeds of love instead with a gift of vegetable seeds to a family in the developing world. ChildFund chief exec- utive Paul Brown says a humble packet of seeds gifted to a family in need represents so much more to loved ones than an expensive bunch of roses. While those roses will wilt within the week, seeds are a more endur- ing sign of your love that will grow into a whole vegetable garden to help nourish children. A single packet of seeds for $16 can yield up to 640 plants, depending on the vege- table. Options include tom- atoes, eggplant, spinach, lettuce, mustard, water spinach, cauliflower or chilli. Purchasers receive a special gift card ex- plaining the gift and how it will benefit the recipi- ent, and also get a gift back via a full tax credit.

New Zealand illustrator Gavin Bishop s rendition of the nursery rhyme The House that Jack Built has been reprinted this year to coincide with Waitangi Day celebrations. Bishop employs the traditional rhyme to tell the story of Aotearoa at the turn of the 19th century. The illustrations begin with the Maori creation story and then fol- low Jack s arrival and colonisation of Aotearoa. Gecko Press has published English language and te reo Maori editions. RRP paperback $19.99 or hardback $34.99 available from good bookstores nationwide. Conference on dune restoration Organisers are expecting more than 80 people from as far as Southland to attend the Dune Res- toration Trust of New Zealand s fifth annual national conference in the Far North. Conference organiser Laura Shaft, CoastCare co-ordinator for the Northland Regional Council, says the Febru- ary 14-17 conference at Taipa is being hosted by the regional council, Taipa Beach Improve- ment Society and the Taipa Area School. The conference will be based at the school s cul- tural centre. The trust was formed in 2007 and its aims include facilitating research on dune ecosystems and increas- ing public awareness of proven methods for pro- tecting, restoring, con- serving and sustainably managing them. Northlanders can register for the confer- ence, including those who only want to attend one day. Programme, registration and information is available from www.dunestrust.org.nz. Magical night with the stars Stories of star-crossed lovers abound in star lore, and have been handed down for millennia.
