2. Navorsing

Vanweë onvoorsiene omstandighede kon ons nog nie vanjaar ‘n PPSA inligtings- en velddag reël nie. Die beloofde terugvoer (Januarie 2013 nuusbrief) van navorsingsresultate staan dus nou oor tot verdere kennisgewing. Die program vir ons AJV op Donderdag, 29 Augustus 2013 by die Cape Floral Kingdom Expo in Bredasdorp is ook reeds te vol hiervoor. Die Expo duur vanaf 29 Augustus tot 1 September 2013. Verdere inligting hieromtrent volg binnekort.
