Poll: What is the top issue you want the local council to focus on?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

Lots are bad, but some are worse - so we've compiled an unscientific and non-exhaustive ranking.

Have you seen any particularly good (or bad) billboards? Let us know in the comments (add NFP if you don't want it published).

Urban Forage

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

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.
