Thinking a getaway, think NZ cycle!

Natalie from World Expeditions

If you're like me and have been itching to get away whilst in lockdown, our borders might still be closed, but NZ is open!

I'm no expert at cycling, but we have some AMAZING cycle trails in NZ - so why not give them a try. The Alps to Ocean, Otago Rail Trail or the West Coast Wilderness are some of our icons.

There's a cycle suitable for all skill levels, and the best part, you're supporting local businesses around the country and everything is organised for you. Just bring yourself - and maybe a friend!

Project to turn Auckland's empty roof space into gardens gets off the ground

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A not-for-profit initiative to turn the empty roofs of Auckland high rises into community gardens has begun.
The project, called Kai in the Sky, is the brainchild of 24-year-old Becky Umbers. Staff from local hospitality businesses, which are struggling because of the pandemic, will tend to the gardens and use the produce grown there for free. Would you tend to and use a roof top garden if they were open to the community?
