What’s happening in Tauranga – August 2016

How was that hail? Our garden magnolia has a fuschia furry bud. Clara bent down to the snowdrops on the way home from school. We’re nearly there folks…Spring’s just over the hump.

As I’m writing this it’s in the Bay of Plenty Times today that Diner en Blanc is coming to Tauranga next March. Woohoo.

Great venues, organisations to check out are:
Arataki Community Centre, Yoga Collective, House of Yoga, The Arty House, The Incubator, Craft Collective, Totara Street, Tauranga Art Gallery * Toi Tauranga.
Wild Earth Organics also has an epic noticeboard informing the people about stuff going on. Tauranga Farmer’s Market from 7.45am – 12 noon each Saturday morning is always a reliable outing (with kids or dogs on lead – not the kids on leads: to clarify)
So, get going on.
