We love having short-term volunteers and in May we had Sylvia Marshall come and stay for a month. Sylvia is an Office Administrator working at Gateways Christian Fellowship (formerly Palmerston North Christian Fellowship) and chose to come to Orama for a short sabbatical - a time to rest - but also to work. And work she did! Sylvia teamed up with Arnie on a number of gardening projects. What a difference they made! A new veggie garden with beautiful wooden edging, a tidied up courtyard garden and removal of flax to expose beautiful pungas and cabbage trees on the bank under Parkview.
