Rangitikei Rural Abuse Intervention Network (RAIN) was established less than a month ago to bring organisations together with the goal of eliminating family violence, and violence against women in the Rangitikei and Whanganui areas. RAIN's first event will be the Race Against Vio- lence held in Marton on Friday, November 25. The event will be styled on the Amazing Race, with check points and prizes. Registration for the day will be at 10am at Centen- nial Park. The event is expected to be over by noon. The purpose of the day will be to raise funds and awareness for White Ribbon Day. The winning team of two will choose a school, or pre-school, in the area to donate their winnings to. Project co-ordinator Gaylene Nepia said the net- work wanted to give something back to the com- munity. We're keeping it local.'' Mrs Nepia said she did not expect the funds from this year's event to be big money''. But she expected it to get bigger each year, and increase community participation: We envisage it will be an annual event.'' Locals will also be encouraged to sign the Rangitikei Against Violence Pledge on the day. Mrs Nepia said she envisaged a network of organ- isations would cut down costs, make it easier to move people through the system, and give them the resources to further the issues they were discussing. RAIN is made up of 19 organisations in the Rangitikei and Whanganui communities that work for safer families and communities.

Getting prepared: Manchester Street School Green Team and Enviro-kids are preparing for a massive garden sale and market day at the school this Saturday. Photo: BOBBIE NICHOLLS MSS plant nursery blooming By BOBBIE NICHOLLS What do you do with a swimming pool that is no longer used? In the case of Manchester Street School, they turned their disused concrete swimming pool into a plant nursery. Each morning a group of the pupils who are part of the Green Team spend time with teacher Leigh Cowen learning about horticulture, propagating and potting up plants, develop- ing a native area in a corner of the school grounds and keeping the area tidy. Each of the Green Team members spends one morning a week with me,'' Ms Cowan said. I really enjoy it, and so do the children. While we work towards the annual plant sale, the focus is on education.'' This Saturday's annual plant sale keeps the project self- supporting, paying for potting mix and other essentials. Parents and friends of the school donate plants for propagating. Alan Mason has given a supply of an unusual blue ground clematis to sell, another friend of the school has donated a number of hostas. This year, three-year-old pohutukawa trees which the team have nurtured from seedlings are looking healthy and are for sale. Succulents, tomatoes, and cannas are also features of the plant sale, with a wide variety of herbs, annual and perennial flower plants. Helping to prepare the area for the plant sale last week, Green Team member Nathan Dalzell, 6, said he likes working in the vegetable garden, which is outside the swimming pool enclosure. Tayla Currie also 6, enjoys potting up. Nine-year-old Jonty Stewart has enjoyed dev- eloping the native area, which has used a disused corner of the school grounds and Olivia Baker, 9, said her favourite part of the project is the worm farm. A new product they will be selling is worm wee'', the leachate which is drained from the worm farm and, diluted 1:10, which is used as a great natural fertiliser, particularly for vegetables, and can be sprayed on fruit trees to dis- courage codlin moth and other bugs. The plant sale and market is open from 9am till 11.30am, from the Warwick St entrance.
