What an awesome spring we’re having. The blossoms are looking magnificent at the moment, which means the winds are on their way. As we continue to develop, we have done some planning in the event that the rain is a little slow, or a little less than we would like.

Its been a lot of hard work from our teams, planning and setting out our first really significant garden at Korimako Dominican Ecology Centre, along side Sister Judith (who took these photos). This year we have been marvelously supported by our community again. ILT and ILT Foundation have invested in our development of a market garden.

As you can see, its coming along brilliantly well, with six garden beds planted out. We have already been using some of the greens we’ve been growing through schools and through the Rugby Southland work we’ve been doing on the weekends.

Towards the back you can see the tunnel houses, which were gifted to us through a donation from Invercargill Budget Advisory Services. We have so much to be grateful for, and we couldn’t do what we do, without so much awesome support from the community. Next weekend, we will be attending Southland’s Ecofest, bringing seedlings and produce that we’ve grown and developed through our gardens, and this is beginning to make things quite exciting.

The week after that we take possession of a container which will be a valuable contribution from Sunrise Rotary – and somewhere for us to store our growing number of tools and equipment safely and out of the weather So many people, clubs, organisations supporting our growth and our work, and giving a true sense of value to our guys for the efforts they make daily to feed kids in schools, and elderly in their homes. We are truly humbled by your generosity. Thank you.
