LinkUp Western Cape

Editorial May/June 2013



Well! The weather changed with a vengeance, one
moment it was hot and the next, winter rains had
arrived! Our garden is responding to the wet and we
are enjoying the baby marrows and spinach that
we planted last summer. There’s nothing like a ‘bit o’
earth’ to call one’s own and to watch the miracle of
bare ground sprouting green leaves and eventually
producing things to grace your dinner table.
Congratulations to Michael Hand who won last issue’s
Shiatsu competition. This time there is a chance to win
a lovely hamper from Enchantrix.
As we head to winter, coughs, colds and flu increase.
Remember to increase your Vitamin C and Zinc intake
to help your immune system to fight off infection.
Echinacea, Golden Seal, Tea Tree oil all have their
place. Hot water with ginger, lemon and honey is a
delicious way to soothe a sore throat. Also, washing
your hands frequently helps to reduce transmission of
those nasty viruses.
Stay warm and keep well.
Till next time,
