As the world struggles to adjust to the new reality of living with COVID-19, we recognise the importance of kindness, compassion and strength in our community during these challenging times.
Since lockdown began, I have been in a one-person bubble with my cat, but sadly he's not much of a conversationalist! I have however, taken solace in my garden and despite the drought it's never looked so good. Every day I am harvesting lots of food - it gives me so much satisfaction.
I think many other people have taken to gardening over this time judging by the rush on buying seeds and seedlings before lockdown. That can only be a good thing to make us more resilient.
With potentially only three weeks left to the end of level three, this is a great time to be looking after our soils by composting all our household food scraps and green waste. For those who are not sure how to go about it, the Compost Collective, who usually run free courses all over the Auckland region, are now doing online courses on their website. Do check it out.
We're devoted to zero waste, and have wonderful local, wastebusters like Trish Allen, who will be sharing tips on reducing waste and keeping you up to date with what is happening at our Lawrie and Rustrybrook Road sites.
