Help Gut Cancer whilst helping local businesses

Natalie from World Expeditions

14 Kiwis are diagnosed with a gut cancer every day. That’s over 5,000 Kiwis every year, making gut cancers the most common type of cancer in New Zealand.

Join the Gut Cancer Foundation’s Plains to Peaks Trek. This gutsy adventure will take you on a spectacular journey from the Canterbury Plains to the Peaks of the Canterbury Alps over a week of trekking from 21st-27th March 2021.

Support Gut Cancer research, whilst supporting local NZ businesses at the same time.

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?
