Sadly, this is a reality for many Kiwi families living in poverty at the moment, as they struggle through a cold winter without even the basics to survive. They are often forced to choose between providing food, warmth and shelter for their family, knowing the profound impact that going without even one of these things will have on their health and well-being.

Please support this ‘Lights On’ Winter Appeal and help keep families safe, warm and sheltered this winter.

A community garden's presence continues to grow in Waimate with the construction of a tearoom offering shelter and "a cuppa out of the wind".

The new tearoom will feature a sink, storage space for a barbecue, seating and be supported by a 1000 litre tank that collects rainwater from the roof. Wastewater will be collected in tubs and feed kiwifruit plants.

What do you think of this new idea? Have you benefited from the community gardens? If so, how?
