A new Marton network are encouraging people to
run the race against violence in support of this year's
White Ribbon Day.
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-
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.

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
The plant sale and market is
open from 9am till 11.30am,
from the Warwick St entrance.
