Gardening is proving a fruitful hobby for Otara s Joe Iosefo. He s just been named runner-up in the annual gardener of the year competition run by New Zealand Gardener maga- zine. Mr Iosefo, a sickness beneficiary, is a keen supporter of the East Tamaki teaching gar- dens. Magazine editor Jo McCarroll says the gar- dens have become a source of pride for Otara which now has less graffiti and vandalism as a result. Mr Iosefo s helped dozens of Otara children set up veggie patches in their homes so they can, in turn, teach their parents. A lot of Joe s neighbours don t have gardening tools, she says. So he goes house to house with his own to help tend the gardens. It s an example of how gardening helps build our communities. As the Auckland regional finalist, Mr Iosefo wins $1000 of gardening products. The national winner is Alan Jones of Canter- bury with Taranaki s Harriet Rei the second runner-up. The NZ Gardener is published by Fairfax Magazines, part of the same company which owns the Manukau Courier.
