If you've ever dug up your patch of Beachmere you'd know that gardening here on our sand spit can often be a hard ask.
It's gardening on top of a sieve.
But for those who persists -- and even grow fruit and vegetables in these conditions -- there are sure to be many lessons and stories to share.
So why don't we get together occasionally and swap tips and skills?
It wouldn't matter how much of a green thumb you were, the experience is sure to be worthwhile.
Maybe we could even explore the option of establishing a community or allotment garden..or looking into supplying locally grown produce and plants to the community?
Anyone interested should phone Dave Riley on (07) 33331805 or by email.
