2013 Gardeners of the Year!

Warmest congratulations to John Graham and John Horrell on winning NZ Gardener magazine 2013 Gardeners of the Year
Here is a page  from the NZ Gardener magazine, December issue (with permission) with a great photo by Keri Molloy of the two Johns standing amidst the renga renga lilies
in the dappled shade of beech trees.

This makes a lovely trio of celebrations for Roland's Wood in November / December with this win acknowledging John Graham and John Horrell's efforts and providing some wonderful prizes for Roland's Wood, along with the event coming up on Tuesday 3rd December at 6pm to unveil the plaque to Roland Sansom for his vision and generosity, and to present John Horrell with his Far North District Council Citizen of the Year Award.

Many thanks also to all the other volunteers who help to maintain Roland's Wood, and thanks to all the people who took the time to vote for our local gardening heroes :-)  All of the entries in the competition were cause for celebration, for their gardening abilities and enthusiasm, and for their generosity of spirit and philanthropy.
