Written by Dunedin playwright Tim Hambleton Directed by Geoff Smith
The gardening club meets monthly in a church hall and is losing members due to old age, illness or accident. It is also in financial difficulties and needs to come up with a source of revenue to pay some unforeseen costs. It comes up with an innovative fundraising solution but the unpleasant local church minister is determined to see the club gone from the hall. Once he has a whiff of some impropriety by the members, he engages a detective to investigate in the hope of providing him with enough dirt to expel the club.
The detective however, is inept and hopelessly out of his depth. He has completely misread the situation and as a result the Minister's plan backfires and he is forced to let the club continue using the hall. Meanwhile, local interest in the police investigation has given new life to the tired club and it is set to dramatically increase its membership, while two members of the club find a welcome friendship where they least expect it.
