01 November 2014

On the 11th & 12th October this year Magnetic Storm launched their new rose, garden & lifestyle show GARDENOPOLY in Port Elizabeth at The Boardwalk Festival Lawns.

Following the concept of the Addo Rose and Garden Show, the Eastern Cape Tourism calendar now boasts an annual garden focussed event in Port Elizabeth.

With the event’s focus being gardening, one of its main attractions is the Charity Garden Challenge which aims to create awareness and fundraising for various charities.

The nurseries & charities paired this year were Bloomingdales Nursery with Esinelitha Day Care; Barbara Eke Designs with Eastern Province Child & Youth Centre and Servest Landscaping with Thand’usana Babies Home.

Following the Charity Garden Challenge displays at the GARDENOPOLY Show the public also got to enter into a competition by voting for their favourite garden and prizes were awarded to them as 1ST , 2ND and 3RD winners.

The grand winner with the most votes from the public was Barbara Eke Designs paired with The Eastern Province Child & Youth Centre.   The trophy & prizes were presented this afternoon at The Boardwalk to the nurseries and charities that participated.

We love tech, but have we become a slave to it?

At Magnetic Storm, we do tech in a big way, every day. We love what it allows us to do, how people can connect, communicate and collaborate. But in today’s world, we’re always on, always plugged in, hiding behind a black mirror. But for an authentic relationship to happen, we need to connect in person. So are we becoming slaves to technology? Is it making us less happy, less 'us'?
