' Tony Phillips Project Twin Streams Glen Eden ranger It's a reserve ripe with poten- tial but rangers at the Project Twin Streams Community Orchard on Lucinda Place want more community input. A meeting will be held tomorrow at the orchard between 6 and 8 Lucinda Place to gather more helpers that would like to be involved in running the project. The rangers hope interested members of the community can develop and maintain the orchard autonomously in the future. It has a variety of fruit and nut trees including plum, fei- joa and macadamias. Project Twin Streams Glen Eden ranger Tony Phillips says people who get involved in establishing the orchard are welcome to reap the fruits of their labour. He says there has never been a better time to get involved in community gar- dens. While community orchards are definitely flavour of the month there's a reason for it. We get involved in this because it has great social and economic outcomes,'' he says. The community gets to come together and get the fruit and nuts from the trees which would cost them a lot more from the stores,'' he says. Project Twin Streams Glen Eden co-ordinator Mark Mil- ler says anyone is welcome to come along to the meeting. You don't have to be good at gardening to be involved you just need enthusiasm,'' he says. You may find that you have other skills like organisational skills that you can offer to the project.'' The meeting runs from 5.30pm to 7.30pm and will cover information about the Twin Streams Project as well as a tour around the orchard. A barbecue will be provided and people are encouraged to bring a plate. Fun times at Guiding Girl Guiding New Zea- land is searching for more girls to join in the fun.
