Take a moment and to read Mila's story on her experience through our Project K programme.

“Ugly, Loser, Pathetic. No one will ever love you. Do everyone a favor, kill yourself.”

The toxic mindset of a 14-year-old. Raised in foster care, abused, exhausted, unstable and insecure. Live in a bus shelter or make the choice to join a program where I will be fed and have a roof over my head. Even if just for a few weeks.

I’d have been a fool not to take the opportunity for kai and friendships. So, I did. I started my wilderness adventure with Project K. The selection process is incredible it managed to select me not at just one high school, but two. I was destined to be a part of the program.

I haven't posted for a few weeks while filtering was on hold to attend the National Dragon Boating Champs in the Sth Island. And I can confirm the 3 Bay Teams did us proud bringing home Gold medals and trophys galore.

While there, I was fortunate to walk the Routeburn Track in great weather and stunning vistas. My trusty water bottle could be filled from numerous alpine streams along the way... One of the few places left in NZ where the water isn't contaminated and treated. Simply gorgeous. All back to work now.

If you want to get the Best from your water by taking the Worst out of it, then call me. I've many options to suit your needs and budget.

We had already a few lovely offers for Fijoas. Thank you all. Probably enough for now. Still looking for Apples, windfalls ok, any condition.

Peter from Pyes Pa

Hi everyone. If you have too many Fijoas for your own use, we are doing some preserving so looking for buckets full, I will pick up. Looking also for free Apples to help with some fermenting. If you can help us would be great.

To help maintain the environment we enjoy, in 2009 Tauranga City Council (TCC) adopted a formal policy entitled “Use of Toxic Agrichemicals for Vegetation Management”.

This policy instigated the formation of the Toxic Agrichemicals Advisory Forum (TAAF) which is a forum of interested and knowledgeable people who can assist the TCC in their determination of acceptable toxic agrichemicals and their circumstances of use on council maintained land.

TAAF invites a mix of people with training, skills, practical knowledge
and/or demonstrated interest in environmental issues, particularly use of agrichemicals to participate in forum deliberations.

Formal qualifications are advantageous but not an essential requirement. Membership is voluntary and is not remunerated.

Meetings are held monthly

To register interest email billmyhill141@gmail.com
