Let planting begin
Bright and bold:
build the new
South City Mall.
They are, from
By LOUISE BERWICK
They're bright, eye-catching and are
a welcome addition to South City.
They're 18 new planter boxes which
have been attracting attention on
Ness St this week after being
delivered to the street's park.
They are part of the upgrade of the
Ness St park which will eventually
be home to a garden, basketball
court and even a stage once the
redevelopment is finished.
Janette Malcolm and her South
Alive team have also come up with a
novel idea to include community
groups in the park revamp as well.
Community groups will be able to
''adopt'' a planter box and look after
it. They will also be able to take
home the harvested produce.
They had already had community
groups approach them and Mrs
Malcolm believed the idea could lead
schools, rest homes and non-profit
organisations to get involved.
Not all the boxes would be adopted
though with about half to be public
boxes where everyone could contrib-
ute and benefit from the vegetables,
Mrs Malcolm was sure the com-
munity would care for the boxes and
that they would not be vandalised
because of their bright colours and
the positive response to them.
''When we did our research around
changes to the South City area, one
of the things people said was 'we
want a lot more colour','' she said.
''The reaction has been surprised
What to get the mother who
By JENNA VAN DER HOORN
Although we love our mothers dearly, it's fair to
say they are the hardest people to buy gifts for.
From Christmas, to birthdays, to Mother's Day:
it's simply not an easy task.
With fathers, you know you can draw from a pool of
resources. How can you go wrong with a box of beer
or any car or bike related product? Dad will always
love what you get him as long as you appeal to his
But with Mum, she's so busy looking after the kids,
the house and the family that we often lose sight of
her hobbies, interests and anything else she holds
dear to her.
But if there's one thing we know, it's that once we
can gain an idea of what she would like, the
appreciation is great.
So what do you get for the mother who has
everything? Or the mother who appears to want for
nothing yet never treats herself?
It's time to become an investigator.
Whether you live at home with your mother, or you
visit her with your own children, just by looking
around and taking notice of things, it will soon
become obvious what holds her interest.
Does she have lots of same-themed items around the
home? For example, bright coloured vases, dining
sets and tablecloths? Does she buy the same
magazine every week? Does she watch a lot of TV?
Appeal to her interests, make her see you are taking
Buy her something bright to match what she has, get
her a magazine subscription to her favourite
magazine, buy her a TV programme subscription or a
new TV if it's within your budget. By seeing what she
takes pleasure from, she will love the thought that
has gone into the gift.
But some mothers simply just don't show what they
love. You can never go wrong with a box of
chocolates and a heartfelt card, a picture of the
grandchildren or breakfast in bed. Everything is
appreciated to show YOUR appreciation
