Cooking For Dogs - Saturday, 29th August

Principal Therapist from The Balanced Dog Ltd

Many owners are seeking ways to add fresh ingredients to their dog’s diet. In this very special cooking class, you will make several recipes for your dog using human-grade ingredients that you can use as a ‘topper’ for their regular dog food; we’ll make dog treats, too. You’ll come home with everything you’ve made plus the recipes and other resource notes.

We’ll discuss diets in general, my support for the semi-homemade diet, and the challenges of feeding a truly balanced diet when relying on home cooking alone. $89 per person for the class including all ingredients and containers, except meats of approximately $30 (a list of meat ingredients will be issued to you before the class). Bring an apron (optional) and a carry bag is recommended to take your items home. Sorry, your dog needs to stay home for this workshop as dogs are not allowed on school property.



Venue is Papanui High School.Saturday, 29th August 2020 from 9 am to 12:30 pm Bookings required.

Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Does Christchurch have too many car parks? The council says probably

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

About 64 hectares of land – 40 per cent of Hagley Park – is dedicated to parking within Christchurch’s four avenues.

Questions are now being asked if more than 35,000 parking spaces is too many, especially given transport is the city’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and the Christchurch City Council has a goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2045.

While the number of on-street parks has reduced, the number of off-street parking spaces in central Christchurch has doubled in five years and there are more than 200 vacant sites in the central city that have become car parks.

What do you think - does Christchurch have too many car parks, or is car parking in the CBD hard to find or too expensive? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
