November’s previous programmes
November 27th 2018 Talk: Rachel from My Tasty Garden
with a short address by Jackie Daair about #GivingTuesday
Rachel and Helene from My Tasty Garden explained to us about growing fruit and vegetables in the UAE climate. Not as difficult as you may think with a bit of knowhow! They can supply bedding boxes, soil mixed to their own specification and plants.
Jackie Daair also talked to us about the increasingly popular day #GivingTuesday which originated in US. She directed us to useful websites to help evaluate different organisations which offer help to those less fortunate than ourselves.
Bettina gave us a short demonstration of some of the projects you can make at her new Handicrafts Circle. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for Bettina’s Circle to be held every 2nd Sunday of the month.

Karen Osman, award winning author of the thrillers The Good Mother and The Home, addressed us at RL social morning today. She told us about her road to becoming a published writer and her busy life as a mother, businesswoman and author. A wonderful talk, thank you Karen!
Following Karen, Arabian Ranches’ Head Chef Nugi presented a variety of sweet treats for us to try. Our chosen favourites will be served at the Tuesday Social Mornings.
