Anne Smith - SPCA Plant Lady

Anne SmithAnne has been the driving force behind establishing our Gardeners’ Corner, firstly at Campbell Road and later at our Fundraising Centre in Main Street Howick.   She has been with us through thick and thin, planning, executing and running our highly successful plant nursery.   Anne not only sources plants from nurseries at very special prices, she also goes to Kloof SPCA to fetch loads of plants donated from their nursery and she also pots out slips, cuttings, divisions of huge matted plants and other material that is donated by gardeners.  Whatever else she does with her magic wand to produce the huge stock of fine plants, seedlings, shrubs and trees to sell at competitive prices I wouldn’t know but the measure of her success is in the band of loyal supporters who always look for their garden requirements at the SPCA Centre before they even think of going anywhere else.

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem. ~Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

We support ONLY the circuses that DO NOT use animals of any kind to entertain the crowds. The use of wild animals in Circus acts is inhumane
