Lunch at Pearl’s Place

Pearls Place 17 June Paul West with guests from Tulgeen

On Wednesday the 17th of June, Tulgeen clients enjoyed lunch at Pearls Place, Merimbula.

Paul West, host of television program River Cottage, provided his culinary skills for the occasion.

Pearl’s Place is a imitative of the Reaching Out Program. In conjunction with the Uniting Church, it assists vulnerable people by providing a meal and some company. This program is currently in a 3 month trial period.

Tulgeen is a proud supporter of this ventureand our clients are thoroughly enjoying it. This was their second visit and with their ongoing interest, a visit will become a regular program offered by INSYNC.

Bare root in winter

Riverside Nursery has a comprehensive range of deciduous trees in stock right now.  

These trees are bare rooted meaning they have been grown in the ground and have been dug up ready for sale in the winter. We have  carefully replant the trees in potting mix in mass beds in the nursery ready for you to select from. When you make your choice, the trees are packed in wet shredded paper in plastic bags to keep the roots moist for your transportation home to plant.

If you are planning an orchard, now is the time to get the best range and price for deciduous trees, plus we also have bare rooted everything from strawberries to asparagus to rhubarb.
