Heavy Rain Watch - What you need to know

Metservice NZ has issued a Heavy Rain Watch for the Waikato region, in place from 2am–3pm, Wednesday 1 February.

Given the large amount of rainfall that our district has experienced over the past few days, we are urging residents to continue to take care and stay aware of the conditions in their area. Further rainfall could quickly exacerbate existing slips, river levels and produce further flooding quite quickly.

Let's talk compost

Sunday 08 November 2020 11:00 am to 01:00 pm

Join sustainability consultant, permaculture designer, educator and environmental activist Leo Murray of Why Waste, as we spend a morning exploring the link between the future of Papatūānuku and the fertility in our soil.
With a focus on at home and on the go solutions, Leo will go through the various approaches to reducing waste, as well as bringing us up to speed on the ongoing mystery of compostable plastics.
Tickets to this event are $10 and attendees will receive discounts to a range of composting products at the end of the workshop.
This event is subsidised through the Waitomo District Council's Waste Minimisation Levy funding.
