10-year strategy open for feedback

Waikato Regional Council

We’ve just released our draft 10-year strategy, and we’d like you to tell us if we’ve got it right.

The new draft strategy is geared at pushing us towards our vision for the mighty Waikato of “empowering our people, caring for our place”.

We’re interested in your thoughts on this new vision and whether you think our six strategic priorities – water, climate, biodiversity, coastal and marine, sustainable infrastructure, transport connections – are the right issues to focus our effort on over the next decade.

Please share your thoughts with us. The survey is open until 1 March.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

Dogs to be on a lead at all times

The Team from Hamilton City Council

With more than 12,000 registered dogs here in Hamilton, we understand how important it is they get their daily exercise.

For your safety and that of your four-legged friends please keep your dogs on a leash at all times. This includes at our off-lead dog parks across the city.

It's all about doing our part and keeping everyone safe.
