Food Foraging

Monday, 18 June 2012, 7:30pm

Te Whare o Te Ata, 60A Sare Cr, Fairfield

Foraging food has become popular around New Zealand, and the world.

On Monday, we'll talk about what's happening in Hamilton and surrounds and what could happen!  Also, HCC have provided some info about where fruit and nut trees are located in public areas in Hamilton.  For more information: http://hogs.wainet.org/  

Note Radio NZ hosts interesting talks about foraging.  Their link is:

We also discuss garlic, what to do to produce big bulbs...it's time to plant this delicious medical herb.

* Seed and plant swap, and you're welcome to sell items on the sales table.

Everyone welcome.  Gold coin entry to cover costs.

 

Pukemokemoke Bush Planting Day

Saturday 21 Jul 2012.  9:00 to 4:30pm

We have 1000 native trees and shrubs to be  planted and will need spades, wheel barrows, golves and lots of helpers.

Getting there:  Drive north on SH9 through Gordonton, then turn right on to Whitikahu Road going towards Tauhei.  After 10 km you will see a hill and quarry on the left.  The entrance is signposted.

Pukemokemoke Bush Reserve consists of 40ha which is open to the public.  It is a lovely place to go for a walk or picnic
