Have you heard of the flipping awesome Community Fruit Harvest Manawatu? Here's our grapefruit tree before the fruit was harvested by Chris and taken to be distributed by this wonderful initiative. Check out their Facebook page, especially their About page, to see ways you can help. Another way of saving surplus food that would go to waste and passing it on to those in need. It's a beautiful thing. <3 Leigh <3

Global Day of Climate Action this Sunday!

Take part in a community planting day to show that the Manawatu is calling for both a global and local response to climate change.

We have three planting and plant care (mulching, weeding) events happening, two in Palmerston North and one in Feilding.
The weather for Sunday is not looking too bad with showers and fine spells and light winds forecast, so if you are free that day we’d love to see you at one of these planting events (details below).

We'll also be at Te Manawa for Discovery Time to celebrate with a range of family-friendly activities and games

At all of these events the people will be invited to sign a “we care, we act” message to send to our new Minister for the Environment. Details in poster!
