Great reading at the Piccabeen Bookshop
It's been a chill winter (and good reading weather), but now we're rejoicing in the return of spring. Still, any season is a good one to pick up a book! Our bookshop always has a great range of quality second-hand books at low cost, and given the quck turnover you're sure to find a book you're keen to read!

Do drop in to chat with the volunteers, find information about our Landcare  work and browse the hundreds of donated books while you're there.

Gift vouchers are available too.
The Piccabeen Bookshop is maintained entirely by volunteers and all income is returned to TM Landcare's projects.

 Landcare Scarecrow: helpers needed!
We've got a great idea for a scarecrow - but we need volunteers to help construct it. No special skills are needed (though they're always welcome): all you need to contribute is enthusiasm.

This is a great opportunity for families to get involved.

If you'd like to help, our scarecrow coordinators would love to hear from you:

PS: the photo isn't of a crow but a glossy black cockatoo.

Where: Eagle Heights Resort Hotel Small Meeting Room (off Reception)


When: Sunday 1th October, 10.30 for an 11am start.


Put this date in your diary - we'd love to see you there!
