Safari celebration: Gardening personality Geoff Willsher and Kavanna Jade, 13, enjoy some early Christmas cheer. Garden delivers for trust Christmas has come a month early for one Waiheke High School student. The Jassy Dean Trust dedicated a special garden to 13-year-old Kavanna Jade during its annual garden safari. Geoff Willsher's Hamilton Rd property featured a Christmas theme and his garage was transformed into a tea room. Kavanna Jade's sister Piper did a roaring trade selling tea, refreshments and Christmas- themed goodies donated by well-wishers. Geoff opened his home during the event, encouraging a gold coin donation to see the Christmas trees inside. The Kavanna Jade Trust is $1763 better off as a result. Jassy Dean Trust chairman Greg Dean says it is hard to tell that Kavanna Jade has a severe bronchial condition that means she has spent more than 180 days in Starship children's hospital this year. ''She has a strong and beautiful spirit and the Jassy Dean Trust will do everything it can to keep a smile on her face,'' he says. Picture perfect: The first guests arrive to look at the art on the lawn at Rorohara, Pie Melon Bay. Art, gardens help sick kids By GEORGE GARDNER Good cause: John Hawkesby swings the bidding wars into action over 24 works of art by Waiheke artists. Plant propagator: Ngaio Lewis had raised $6000 for the Jassy Dean Trust even before the annual plant sale at Rangihoua Estate took place. THE sight of artworks on one of the most beautiful lawns on Waiheke was the first of many incredible views to come during the annual SeaLink Jassy Dean Trust Garden Safari. The Bayleys Waiheke Art in the Garden art auction, conducted by John Hawkesby, kicked off a week- end of fundraising for sick Waiheke children that did not stop until Sunday night. About $30,000 was raised at the Friday function, through ticket sales and the auction of artworks by 24 Waiheke Island artists in Bruce Plested s garden, Rorohara, in Pie Melon Bay. The annual Central Landscapes plant sale at Rangihoua Estate, run by Geoff Bullock and his team alongside the safari, topped last year s record by raising $20,000 over the two days. That s an awful lot of pot plants, Jassy Dean Trust chair- man Greg Dean says. Plant sale team member Ngaio Lewis sold $6000 worth of the plants during the year for the trust and is the proud owner of the New Zealand Gardener Make-a- Difference award for 2012. Ngaio has given over her garden to propagating plants for the trust. She provides the inspiration for the rest of us, Mr Dean says. Garden safari co-ordinator Michelle Barber says final fun- draising figures are still being counted but about 1500 tickets were sold to the annual two-day spring fundraiser. What a beautiful weekend. I want to thank everyone involved. Mr Dean pays tribute to the 12 garden owners who worked for months before opening their properties to the public. The results were amazing. I also want to thank the volunteers at the gates who were so welcoming. They give the safari its positive face. My greatest satisfaction is that the safari is a win for everybody involved. Smiling faces, healthy children, people happy to be involved and lots of laughs and fun. See opposite for the People's Choice Award.
