Car audio installations

Andy from Te Awamutu

Please give water to the birds and wildlife in your garden each day

Sharon Neighbourly Lead from Te Awamutu

With the very dry conditions we are all experiencing in parts of New Zealand with no end to the level 4 water restrictions in our sight, it is important to remember our wildlife we have in our gardens.

An idea to save water that may otherwise be wasted.. I know and read that many of you have been using grey water to water the garden.. and for the flushing of the toilet cistern .
When you run water for a shower there is water at the begining that isnt used as its cold. Consider collecting that water and put some aside for a container up high for birds or lower for our ground dwelling creatures
