Worm Farm

Kim from Blenheim

Hi all, I just brought a worm farm and was wanting to know the best place to buy worms from. Also any tips or tricks people think I should know, I looked at a few websites but they often contradict each other, some say bread, pasta and potato peelings are ok others say no, how to feed the worms differs too, chop everything up small, leave whole, dig in, spread across the top of the dirt, only spread across half at a time, dig trenches. I'm feeling a bit confused about the whole thing and don't want to kill my worms when I get them. Any help would be appreciated.

We Say/You Say: MMP

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern Outlook

Hi Canterbury,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Have you seen this amazing garden?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
