Our Urban Forage Mahinga Kai started at Auckland Domain with a walk through the lower tracks with Riki Bennett to discover a range of edible and not so edible plants, trees and berries.

The forage was then followed by a gourmet luncheon and some of the menu items were prepared using the Kai cooker.

The main highlight was the Kahikatea Berry Jelly which consisted of berries foraged from a year ago.

How to deal with neighbourhood disputes

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, most of us are lucky enough to get on with the people we live next door to, but what can you do if you don't?

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because … View more

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because being better neighbours can only have a positive impact on the quality of our communities, and who wouldn't want that :)

The realigned track is the first bush track to reopen after being upgraded to prevent kauri dieback disease, and part of the Kaipātiki Local Board's efforts to provide new and alternative tracks away from kauri trees in our parks.
A report is coming to the September Local Board meeting seeking approval for a number of other track changes in our parks. For Kauri Glen Reserve, this will include several other realignments, including a 16m high elevated treetop boardwalk! It will also include a proposal to temporarily close the paths to/from Raymond Tce and Tui Glen Rd until those tracks can be brought up to dieback-preventative standard.
