Saturday 25th of August was a lovely Spring-like day. I joined a group of locals to help establish a local Food Forest, initiated by Meg Collins of Ohiwa Reserves Care Group. I was assigned the job of compost bin construction assistant. 18 trees were planted; Granny Smith apple, feijoa, Black Doris plum. lemon, orange, bananas, macadamia and peach. A good day was had by all. The area is now experiencing a lot of rain, so that should give the seedlings a good start.
