Law Series Papamoa: Family Trusts

Library Law Series starting in September.
Come and hear from an experienced lawyers on topics such as Wills, Buying & Selling real estate (focus on 1st home buyers), Relationship Property, Enduring powers of attorney and Family Trust.

It’s free and open to all.

Family Trusts

Family trusts can/may be used for a variety of reasons. If you are in business, they offer protection from creditors, and an opportunity to split income between family members. They protect the interests of future generations and can avoid estate litigation. Many people want to know about whether they will help with rest home subsidies. We have worked with family trusts for many years and can tell you how they work, why you might want them and what they can achieve. We will also look at how you administer a trust.

Seed Saving Workshop

Join Tess for an afternoon of learning how to save your own seeds. This will be a hands on workshop where you will learn how to harvest, process and preserve seeds from your garden for planting next year.

Seed saving is a fantastic resiliency skill which encourages the growing of heirloom & open-pollinated seeds to increase the genetic diversity of plants available to us all and of course of our future generations.

We will cover some basic theory behind seed saving, as well as different methods and storage. And of course there will be some seed to take home with you.

When: Saturday 10 October 2020 1-4pm
Where: Workshop held at the home of Crafty Gatherer in the Papamoa Hills, Bay of Plenty.

Cost: $40
