Dear neighbours,

Please meet Alyce Read of Nelson, who uses her houseplant collection to connect with others and help them overcome mental health challenges. "You wouldn’t take a plant and put it in a dark corner and fail to water it and expect it to thrive. So we should look at ourselves that way," she says. "If we are not thriving in the way that we would wish, it might not be any fault of ours, it might be the conditions that we are under."

Random Acts of Kindness – August 1st to 31st 💐

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, build a free community library for your street, buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food bank, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re spreading kindness this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:

The Groundswell movement is to be congratulated. Their low-key, apolitical, factual and dignified campaign has left the country in no doubt about the current issues facing farmers.

The Groundswell protests around the country were impeccably organised and transmitted the farmers’ concerns to what has been a sympathetic audience. Both the local and national media have been supportive.

Singularly, Groundswell has delivered farmers’ messages simply, clearly and without fuss. The country will be in little doubt of the problems facing the productive sector.

The Groundswell mantra of unworkable regulations and unjustified costs has certainly resonated......
