Warren Buffet buys 63 local newspapers in USA.....

The cake stall at Renwick School’s cross country day on Tuesday was a huge success for a group of mothers raising money for Sophie Gilchrist. Sophie Gilchrist

US Business magnate, Warren Buffet

US Business magnate, Warren Buffet (one of the richest men in the world), has just invested in 63 newspapers in America. He Says: “I believe newspapers that intesively cover their communities will have a good future. “That Means maintaining your news advantage and throughly covering all aspects of area life, particularly local people. “A newspaper that reduces its coverage of news important to its community is certain to reduce its readership as well. “No one has ever stopped reading half-way through a story that was about them or their neighbours.”

Tips

SPROUT SMOOTHIE TIPS FOR AUGUST • August is a good month to plan and prepare a new veggie bed. • Prune roses and transplant deciduous trees and shrubs while they are still dormant. • Plant peonies, lily-of-the-valley and raspberries. • Sow tomatoes indoors and get them ready to plant out once the soil is warmer. • Feed camelias and azaleas after they finish blooming. Trim at this time also. • Cut or pluck dead flowers from bulbs, allowing their leaves to die down naturally.

GO ORGANIC and Live for a Better Day! Gardening enthusiasts, growers, lifestyle block owners, professional gardeners, farmers and orchardists of all ages are invited to register for this popular course held here in Blenheim.

Level 3 This course is ideal for lifestyle block owners, home gardeners and/ or commercial growers and will provide key knowledge and skills required for organic growing. The overall aim is to build ecosystems, promote biodiversity and increase soil and plant health, instead of relying on artificial fertilisers and poisonous sprays. On successful completion you will be awarded a Telford Certificate in Organic Horticulture (Level 3).

Course Start: Thursday 16th August 2012 in Blenheim with an information meeting, with classes starting in early-September. Course Cost $250.00

Scheduled to start with an information meeting planned for Thursday 16th August, this 8 month long, one day a week, course explores the latest trends in sustainable growing. The overall aim is to build ecosystems, promote biodiversity, increase soil and plant health and avoid the use of artificial fertilisers and sprays. A science-based approach explores a wide range of organic techniques and systems. Topics covered include organic philosophies, certification, soil management, soil food webs, composting, companion planting, liquid organic fertilisers, crop rotation, green manures, weed control, pest and disease management, plant knowledge and an introduction to permaculture. This knowledge can be applied not only to food crops, but to the cultivation of any plants – from suburban gardens to pastures, orchards, shelter belts and woodlots. Students meet once a week on a Wednesday from 9.30am to 3pm during the school terms. In addition to attending tutorials, workshops or fieldtrips, students will need to complete practical and theory assignments in their own time. You will be working towards a Telford Certificate in Organic Horticulture (Level 3). Having some prior knowledge of horticulture and growing plants is recommended although keen beginners are invited to apply. Although this programme has a horticultural bias, pastoral farmers wishing to get an understanding of what organic farming is all about will also find this course of value. Networking between organic growing enthusiasts is an added bonus to joining this course.
