With the current restrictions we aren’t able to print or distribute at the moment, but we are working hard on a fantastic May issue for you and it will be on sale as soon as the restrictions ease! I am hearing from so many readers right now about how their gardens have never been more important to them than they are now, so I want to ensure you get your NZ Gardener, packed with beautiful pictures, expert advice, inspiration and information as quickly as possible, so you can enjoy your own garden even more. Meanwhile, when you do your next shop, we’d love it if you could pick up a copy of the April issue which is on sale now (you can add a copy to your online shop too). As you’ve probably heard on the news it is a tough time for magazines right now, and we are incredibly grateful for the support of our regular readers and (especially!) our subscribers. If you are in a position to subscribe, or share your own love of plants and gardening by buying a subscription as a gift for someone else, then we’d be incredibly grateful: mags4gifts.co.nz.... Stay safe and enjoy the extra time in your garden everyone! Jo

Eaten too many bunny-shaped chocolates this weekend? Fed up of Netflix asking if your ‘still watching’? Or just looking for a creative way to keep active in your bubble? Well, we have an idea for you! Join the Red Cross virtual tour of Lake Taupo!

You can run, walk, yoga and even garden your way across the length of Lake Taupo (71km) from the comfort of your own bubble.

To join, you just need to make a minimum donation of $25. This donation helps fund the amazing work New Zealand Red Cross does. We are on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, with 190 of our volunteers working in their communities to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Our Meals on Wheels and migration services have been deemed essential services and are continuing to operate throughout alert level four. And our Restoring Family Links service is supporting families who have lost contact with each other because of the pandemic. Our work supporting people in times of crisis or disasters is more relevant now than ever.

So, whether your rack up steps from running up and down your stairs, or simply walking to-and-from the fridge, have a little fun and join our virtual tour! - www.myvirtualmission.com...

It is absolutely deplorable that Waikato Police had to turn around 20% of vehicles of people breaking the lockdown due to Covid - 19.

As an over 70 year old wanting to get things done around the house and not able to leave the property I find that these people want to stretch out the lock down period and then lose their livelihoods to be totally irresponsible. The Police need to throw the book at them because this is inexcusable.

Can you help us help our frontline this Easter?

ShieldsUp is a volunteer driven initiative of over 500 Kiwis, 3D printing, manufacturing and distributing face shields to our medical and emergency heroes across the country facing Covid-19 head on.

Within two weeks, we have delivered over 5,000 face shields, but we are still hearing the calls of many. As the government and DHB’s publicly assure us that all necessary equipment is readily accessible, the demand for our face shields continues to grow daily, with requests for 30,000 shields.

If you would like to help us help them, sign up to volunteer at shieldsup.org.nz, or make a donation to ensure we can continue to produce and distribute our shields to protect our frontline heroes.

ShieldsUp, offering protection to Kiwi’s against COVID-19.

Recreate a classic game in an unconventional format using Resene testpots to paint your own dominoes. Smooth rocks, like those found on the beach or in a river bed, work best for this project.

Take the kids out to search for ones that lay flat and are generally round or oblong in shape. If you don’t live near water, you should be able to get some from your local garden supply store.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Find out how to create your own rock domino set.
