No show due to show – a fair affair, fair enough?


Durban and Coast Horticultural Stands.This shows why my attention is fully occupied at the moment.  The (takes deep breath) Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs for the Province of KwaZulu Natal (pant, pant) has organised – very well, I may say – a Sustainable Living Festival, Exhibition and Indigenous Plant Fair 2014.

It commenced today, with busload after countless busload of school children attending, and will run through Sunday.

Our participation is through Durban and Coast Horticultural Society, of which Much Better Half and I are members of the Garden Judges subsection, and I am also on the Board.  We are running the four stands for Floral Art, House Plants, Garden Judges, and a general information one I am manning (the farthest one in the picture), and where I am also selling novels of certain bloggers you may know with a donation of part of the proceeds to the Society …

Those who are conveniently located are welcome to watch one of our demonstrations on things like Decorative Vegetable Gardening, Making Compost in a Small Space, Floral Art using Basic Material, or Propagation; and then purchase some recommended reading – autographed, if you so desire!  There are stax of other things to see, too, including magician shows and such diversions for younger visitors.

    The “Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs for the Province of KwaZulu Natal?!” I love those guys! But I prefer to refer them as the DCGTAftPoKZN. It’s just easier to say.
    Seriously, now that it has ended, did you have a good time?
