Sue ParkerMediterranean Gardening Association – Portugal, Members and Friends Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday April 1st 2017, including a talk by Sue Parker, followed by guided walk 'Wild Orchids – Odysseys & Oddities'.

“Go to the right places in the Algarve at the right times of year, and the most amazing orchid sights will greet you.”

Sue Parker shares her time between homes in Wales and the Algarve and travels, mainly in Europe, to see, photograph and learn more about wild terrestrial orchids. Her passion for wild orchids dates back to her childhood in the Far East, where epiphytic orchids grew on the fence at the bottom of her garden.

Karma chameleon?You may have seen that this week the case of the rare chameleon will be taken to court in Loulé.

It appears that there is an extremely rare chameleon living on one of the islands in the Ria Formosa that 'improvers' wish to improve by knocking down houses. By an extraordinary coincidence there is a chameleon in the cast of Aperitivo’s latest play Paradise Island, which, amazing though it might seem, is also about an island where unscrupulous developers wish to knock down houses.

Deep Connection 2017Deep Connection is, first and foremost, a retreat – a facilitated week in a safe space for self-care and time to just be.
