Weatherproof: Terrace Hill Garden, Mangaweka.
Terrace Hill is a garden for all
seasons. Situated on a terrace high
above the Rangitikei River it
experiences snow and drought.
Jeff and Dot Bosher moved into
Terrace Hill in July 1987 after
building a new home on the prop-
''We previously lived in town and
when we were up here with the
wonderful landscape views, I just
knew this was where we should be.
I came to a garden with a few
maples, a huge old rhodo and a row
of macrocarpas. They have now
gone and been used as firewood,''
said Mrs Bosher who has always

mainly fruit and veges which he
needed to feed our large family.

Starting with nothing Mrs Bosher
hosted shrub sales through friends
with a similar interest. Biddy and
Rusty Barrett from Taranaki were
great mentors and Mrs Bosher was
able to boost her garden through
them. ''Jeff and the boys have all
put their stamp on the garden -- it is
a joint effort.''
Recently Mrs Bosher decided to
open her garden and share it with
others. ''What am I doing all this

their mistakes and I'm constantly

teas available. There is a cover

Following the closure of Taihape's 32T
After School and Holiday programme in
July, St Joseph's School principal Ann-
Maree Manson-Petherick established a
programme that provides on-site after-
school care for children from local
''We provide varied and organised age-
appropriate activities each day,'' Mrs
''This includes afternoon tea, outdoor
and/or indoor activities. Table tennis and
badminton have become very popular
with the older children, while the
younger age group enjoy the playground
and use of the school library.
''Cooking and watching movies on the
big screen is also enjoyed by many. There
are areas where children can do their
homework if required.''
The afternoon school bus transports
children from Taihape Area School to St
Joseph's. They are picked up by their
parents at the end of each day. The pro-
gramme runs between 2.40pm and
