Multicultural Tree Planting!

Todd Nachowitz from EarthDiverse

EarthDiverse, the Waikato Interfaith Council, the Waikato Multicultural Council, GoEco, Kaivolution, Tui 2000, Friends of Waiwhakareke, the Bahá’í Community, Waikato Biodiversity Forum, Artmakers Trust and the Hamilton City Council are co-organising a Community-wide tree planting event to take place in Hamilton on Saturday 18 July 2020, 10:30am-1:30pm (Rain Date in case of absolutely awful weather will be on Saturday 1 August). Bring a spade or shovel, gumboots, appropriate outdoor weather gear (e.g. hat, rain gear, sunglasses), some gardening gloves, water and a big smile. Don't forget to bring your friends and family!

If you don’t want to dig there are other ways to help out (like bringing a small food donation, or helping with setting out and serving a light lunch). A light lunch will be served (courtesy of Kaivolution, GoEco, WIFCO, EarthDiverse, the Bahá’í Community and others). Please bring your own plates, cutlery or mugs in order to minimise waste.

Make sure you are there for the group orientation from 10:30-11:00am. We'll plant from about 11:00-12:30pm. 100 people would mean planting about 5-10 saplings each.

Planting will be followed by a free sponsored light lunch with the help of GoEco, Kaivolution, the Waikato Interfaith Council, EarthDiverse and the Hamilton City Council.

Our annual community tree planting event is family friendly, free, fun and open to the public. All are welcome to attend.

Mark this date in your diaries now. Come and work together and help offset our carbon usage!

Location: Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park, Brymer Road (opposite the entrance to the Hamilton Zoo). Just follow the ‘Community Planting’ signs at the end of the Baverstock Road intersection with Brymer Road. We’ll meet in the car park at 10:30am for a quick health and safety briefing and planting instructions, and will then head down into the park.

Are granny flats a good retirement option?

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email mikaela.wilkes@stuff.co.nz or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

Recycling: easy as 1, 2, 5

The Team from Hamilton City Council

Sadly, no one offshore wants to buy Kiwis’ used plastics. This means that while we will be collecting plastics 1-7, we’ll now only be recycling plastics 1, 2 and 5.

We’re asking you all to join the movement and try and avoid purchasing products with plastics 3, 4, 6 and 7. More information on this can be found in the link below ⤵️
