Free public tours of Watercare's Upper Mangatawhiri Dam in the Hunua ranges

Maxine Clayton from Watercare

Watercare is inviting Aucklanders to come and learn about the dams in the Hunua ranges and see one of New Zealand's largest native forest planting projects.



Date: Saturday 16, November

Watercare staff will be giving a fascinating insight into how the five earth dams were constructed (1951-1977) and how they store and supply 60% of Auckland's water. You will also see our major reforrestation project, in which more than 300,000 native plants have been planted in an area once occupied by a forest.


Age limit: children must be aged five years and over and accompanied by an adult.    


Bookings are essential: open.day@water.co.nz 


A reasonable standard of fitness is required as the tour involves some walking. Please remember to wear flat, enclosed shoes (no jandals or high heels).

Croissants

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

And we make our own BUTTER! This week our Level 5 Diploma students spent two days prepping for and baking croissants. From shaking cream for thirty minutes to achieve a rich butter, to proving the pastry for a minimum two hours to attain the ideal puff and flake. A very technical yet rewarding few days.
