Central Otago Tree Growers NEWSLETTER – APRIL 2015
We have had two meetings this year. The A.G.M. Was held in March. A review of this meeting is followed by a list of the new committee and an introduction to two members who have not served before, our new chair, Jeffrey F and Ngaio H, a new recruit to the committee.
The second meeting was held in April. A review of this by Sue M is followed by a chart showing the availability of cider apple scion wood held by Ian. There is also an article on sterilising apple juice for cider.
Many of us who have purchased land in Central Otago have been faced with the problem of poor soil. I have asked two of our members, Valda M and Paul D, to give us a history of their land and the measures they have taken to improve their soil. I hope this proves useful to all of us and especially to those who are embarking on a new life on the land.
