Garden party

The Chee Mee family celebrating Garden Day with family and friends.

Retired Rocklands Primary School teacher, Zita Chee Mee, who had a hand in many of the school’s award-winning environmental projects, hosted a garden party at her Colorado Park home for family and friends recently to mark the first commemoration of Garden Day on Sunday October 21. Next year Garden Day will be celebrated on October 20 and proposed ways to celebrate include starting a plant club, having a garden scavenger hunt and enjoying dinner in your garden with each dish featuring a home-grown ingredient.
