Dor­drecht WAA on a roll

The Rep - - CLASSIFIED -

The Dor­drecht Women’s Agri­cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion ended off their year by fill­ing three ve­hi­cles with a group of ex­cited women en route to Ugie.

In El­liot there was a visit to the NG Church, and after the North-East Cape cir­cle out­go­ing pres­i­dent Ina Bekker joined them in Ugie, break­fast was en­joyed at the Cock & Cat restau­rant.

A quick meet­ing took place and then con­vener of the day, El­ize Oosthuizen, spoke on the day’s pro­gramme.

The pig­gery of Toy and El­ize My­burgh was vis­ited, with in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion shared on breed­ing, clean­ing and mar­ket­ing.

The group also viewed El­ize’s gar­den and en­joyed her roses. Chris Gouws of Ugie spoke on plants and flow­ers and mo­ti­vated the mem­bers to be in­spired in their own gardens.

The next stop was at Hen­nie Matthee’s Sterk­fontein nurs­ery near Ma­clear. He started a beau­ti­ful gar­den and nurs­ery on 3ha 48 years ago. It con­tin­ues to thrive, with stun­ning cor­ners which al­low for re­lax­ation and an area set aside for events.

After snacks, the group left for Ma­clear for a quick visit to the restau­rant and gift shop. – Rep cor­re­spon­dent
