Sunday May 12th 2013 – Starting time 11am
Where: Elfy and Erwin’s property at Ludbrook Road, Pakaraka
What: Elfy writes-
“We have had our Lifestyle Block since 2000 and have planted a lot of different varieties of fruit and nut trees, to find out which trees would suit our property.
“As Macadamias did very well, we planted about 600 Macadamia trees over the next 3 years. This is our main crop, but we also have a little apple, pear and orange orchard, just planted over the last few years. Apart from the apple trees there are no fruits yet.
“There is also an area with tropical trees and unusual trees e.g. fruiting Lucuma. Our goal is to have mainly edible plants or otherwise useful plants. We have a lot of different varieties of edible plants and are always on the search for more. We are certified organic.”
Bring: Lunch, name badge and a folding chair if you have one.
