TIEG Monthly Meeting - Thursday, September 5, 2019

The  next meeting of Inland Empire Gardeners will be on Thursday, September 5, 2019  at 6:30pm at CenterPlace, 2426 N Discovery Pl, Spokane Valley--across from the YMCA in Mirabeau Park. 

 

On Thursday, Sept 5, 2019 at 6:30pm at CenterPlace, 2426 N Discovery Pl, Spokane Valley, WA, Bruce Wakefield, Office Director, Hardy Plant Society of Oregon and world traveler will present “Kia Ora! Garden Touring in New Zealand.” Kia ora is a warm and welcoming greeting you'll hear throughout New Zealand and comes from the indigenous language. In its simplest form, it is hello. But these two little words signify more than just a passing greeting. In its literal sense, ''ora" refers to a state of living, or being alive. So when you say kia ora to someone, you are wishing the essence of life upon them. This gorgeous presentation will cover a wide variety of the best gardens on both the north and south islands--from subtropical to alpine, from designer gardens to wild woodland gardens, from urban to rural to wine estates, and of course it will also include “Hobbiton” from the movie set of the “Lord of the Rings.” Our New Zealand adventure takes place in October, springtime in the Southern Hemisphere, when many native plants are blooming. Discover New Zealand's wonderful gardens, from renowned gardens of national significance to some hidden gems that you'll never forget. You don't have to be a gardener to appreciate a beautiful garden and the wonderful hospitality of the passionate gardeners, who welcomed us into their homes as friends. Although the word's origins are steeped in history, kia orais used as an informal greeting throughout New Zealand. You will hear everyone from the Prime Minister to the local shopkeeper using it in day-to-day conversation. So the next time you're in New Zealand, embrace their culture and say kia ora to the locals!





TIEG Meeting is free and open to the public.
