Waka ama crews from across Te Tauihi o te Waka (the Top of the South) gathered at Parapara beach on Saturday morning for the third meeting in the Winter Waka Challenge. The quad series normally runs from May through to August but, like many other activities, was suspended during coronavirus lockdown. Every year, clubs based in Picton (Waikawa), Nelson (Maitahi, Whakatu Marae, Te Tai o Aorere ), Kaiteriteri (Motueka), and Golden Bay (Onetahua) host one of the four race events. This weekend’s meeting was the first to be held at Parapara, the result of a tie-up between Aorere Futures Trust and Onetahua Waka Ama Club (OWAC). By 8.30am on Saturday, an impressive fleet of outrigger canoes (OCs) were lined up on the flat sands. The sleek vessels included single-

seaters (OC1), doubles (OC2) and six-person (OC6) craft. OWAC enjoys a close relationship with Onetahua Marae and, before the racing got underway, Whaea Makere Chapman delivered a karakia, followed by some words about the history and cultural significance of Parapara from Matua Robin Slow. With crews eager to launch their boats, Andrew Lamason pointed out the buoys marking the 6.6km course. Navigating the waypoints took the competitors close to 1km offshore where they made a left turn, continuing along shore before paddling through the narrow entrance to the Parapara estuary. Once inside, the course continued to the far eastern end where, after an about-turn the crews retraced their strokes to the finish. In the first race of the day, involving the

OC1s and OC2s, a flooding king tide carried the boats into the estuary, but the return to the open sea, against the flow, proved hard work. By the time the OC6 crews reached the pinch-point in the second race, the tide was already turning, and was ebbing strongly when the OC6 mixed teams headed into the estuary in the final race. After the final race meeting in Picton next month, the winning club will be presented with the Winter Waka Challenge trophy – a stunning creation designed and crafted by artist Brian Flintoff from the jawbone of a sperm whale. Back on the beach after some energetic paddling, Te Tai o Aorere crew member and Golden Bay’s former FreshFM presenter Wendy Andrews said it had been a very successful morning for the club’s women. “I think we won all our races.” She put it down to preparation.

Book review

“We train five times a week - in the gym and on the water.” President of OWAC Selwyn Farr said crews had fun and coped well with the strong tidal flows. “It was a great day out there of tricky racing around Parapara inlet, a great challenge for the Top of the South paddlers on the Western shores of the Bay. Good friendly Rivalry, enjoying a great time battling it out on the water.” And after a busy morning of competition, one of the Onetahua crews had enough strength to paddle their boat home. “Our Long Distance OC6 mixed team paddled a waka back from Parapara to Tarakohe in two-and-a half-hours covering 25km, and then we put out feet and paddles up.” For more photos and full race results see page 12.

David broadens his horizons with adventure at Outward Bound JEANINE TAYLOR

Bulk fuel delivery you can depend on

Golden Bay High School Year 13 student David Oakden has just returned from an eight-day Outward Bound Adapted Course in the Marlborough Sounds. The idea to send David to Outward Bound in Anakiwa came from learning support co-ordinator Melanie Mott. Melanie has had prior experience of working at Outward Bound as a Horizons instructor. The Horizons course runs for eight days and is tailored to suit those aged 18+ with an intellectual disability. Melanie recognised that David would be an ideal candidate, being in his transition year from school to the workplace, and also because of his love of physical activity. After much planning and preparation, both at home and school, David set out for Anakiwa. His course ran from 9-16 September, and it was a great relief for everyone involved that the Covid 19 alert level 2 allowed the course to proceed. This was David’s first adventure without the support of a family member. “My favourite things were, rock climbing, the flying fox and jumping off a bridge into the cold water,” he said. Every day he got up at 6.20am and did some physical training (PT), a run, a swim followed by a cold shower, then breakfast. His day involved activities such as bushwalking, sailing, kayaking, team activities and even an overnight supported solo experience. A course highlight occurred when dolphins swam beside their boat while David was out sailing. When asked to describe his adventure he replied “It was awesome!” According to the Outward Bound website, their Mission/ Te Aronga is: “We empower people to make life-changing journeys of self-discovery through shared adventures in te ao tūroa, the natural world.” You can find out more about the

The RSA’s big gravestone clean-up Planning for unexpected outages With a little planning you can be prepared for an unexpected power outage.

Spring weather can be unpredictable. Now is a great time to consider whether you are appropriately prepared should the weather cause an unexpected power outage. Things that will help you manage an unexpected outage include:

A noble project is being undertaken by Golden Bay RSA volunteers: the cleaning and restoration of headstones of returned servicemen and women. Every year our local RSA puts a poppy on soldiers’ graves throughout the district, but this is the first year of grave cleaning. “We thought, let’s do more than a poppy,” said Noel Baigent, president of the Golden Bay RSA. Vice president Kevin Greenem, who has served in New Zealand, Bosnia and East Timor, took up the initiative on his own in April. “I knew what was going on around the country, so I thought I’d do my bit here,” he said. Interrupted by the Covid pandemic, he now hopes to have completed the “last dozen or so” by Armistice Day. With 216 service personnel headstones in the Takaka district alone (excluding Collingwood), this is no small task. Kevin’s 10-year-old daughter has also pitched in. Kevin has enjoyed the task, even researching some soldiers whose graves he encountered, like Charles Gatenby of the 26th Infantry Battalion, who is interred at Rototai Cemetery. “He was involved in the Second World War in the first Libyan

campaign, was captured twice and escaped twice,” said Kevin. “He immigrated from England in 1913 to Nelson, was awarded the MBE in 1945, was in Nelson 60-odd years, then came here, but only six months later, he passed on.” The volunteers are part of the New Zealand Remembrance Army, active nationwide, their aim to protect and remember past New Zealand military service personnel. In New Zealand, 3,478 New Zealand casualties of the two World Wars are commemorated, but the Remembrance Army aims to honour all servicepeople. “Those guys that came home with shellshock, now buried around the district, they’re just as important,” said Noel. “They weren’t killed overseas but they certainly were affected in other ways.” Noel says there are now only a few dozen ex-military RSA members left in Takaka to volunteer their time. “Our hope is to get a message through to the families and the younger ones, trigger some family memories so they can connect with their ancestors.” The RSA wishes to acknowledge the generous donation of cleaning products and paint by our local Hammer Hardware store.

Book box joins foodbank and MSS

Mohua Social Services have this lovely initiative that the community have developed at our front door. People donate fresh produce and fruit and vegetables that appear and also disappear to people who need them. We would like to thank Bay Subtropicals and the Sustainable Living Centre and all individuals for their contributions. It is wonderful to be able to offer fresh food to people. Many of the people who benefit from this are children going to and from Golden Kids so we have developed another initiative for them and others. This is a Community Library with a box of children’s books. They can be kept or borrowed and if anyone has spare children’s books please just leave them in the box for our little people to enjoy. We would also like to thank Golden Kids for decorating our box for us, it means you can’t miss it. Premal, Service manager

Dolphins in danger from disease

I’d like to thank Heather Wallace (GBW,11/9) for responding to my letter (GBW,4/9). Her letter perfectly illustrated the point I was making, that the threat to dolphins from toxoplasmosis isn’t being taken seriously enough. Despite credible scientific evidence strongly suggesting dolphin deaths from toxoplasmosis far exceed those from fishing activities, Mrs Wallace describes toxoplasmosis as a relatively benign illness. Contrast her opinion with that of the Conservation Department, who state toxoplasmosis is likely to be a significant human-caused threat to dolphin populations. They also state the disease causes behavioral changes, stillbirths and reduced reproductive rates. That doesn’t sound very benign to me . In 2012 the Government responded to concerns that fishermen were failing to report catching Māui dolphins. They passed laws requiring all setnet vessels and some trawlers operating in the area inhabited by Māui dolphins, to carry independent observers. Eight years on, the observer programme has cost millions of dollars and not one Māui has been caught. This is but one of many examples of conservationists scaremongering being proved false. It’s becoming increasingly clear that toxoplasmosis is the main threat to the highly endangered Māui dolphins survival as a species. It’s hypocritical that conservationists aren’t demanding the Government take the threat seriously, as they misguidedly do about certain fishing practices. If Governmental inaction results in Māui dolphins becoming extinct, their blood will be on the hands of the Government and conservationists, not the fishing industries. Hugh Cropp

Community Feedback on Takaka CCTV Cameras

The Takaka Police have approached the Golden Bay Community Board to support the installation of CCTV cameras in Takaka Township. Similar CCTV systems in other small town communities have directly contributed to reductions in petty crime, vandalism, and anti-social behaviour. The cameras would be an asset in protecting people, property and community and would support our local Police and promote safety in Takaka, assisting Police to work towards Safer Communities, Safer Roads, and Safer Homes. Cameras and footage would be owned by the New Zealand Police, and footage would be held at the Takaka Police Station to be viewed by Police staff retrospectively in relation to crime or anti-social behaviour, with footage erased after 3 months. Commercial Street, Rec Park Centre, Memorial Park and the playground would all be covered by cameras, along with roads in and out of Takaka. The Board proposes to fund the purchase and installation of CCTV cameras through the Golden Bay Community Board Special Projects Fund, with an ongoing maintenance account to be established separately and managed by Takaka Police. The Golden Bay Community Board is now seeking community feedback on the proposed installation of a CCTV system via a short online submission form at: https://forms. gle/gWU2xC4YfJdo3Ypb9. Forms can also be completed at the Takaka Service Centre for those without internet access. Feedback will run from 23 September 2020 to 23 October 2020, and the Board will make the final decision on Funding at the November Community Board meeting. Abbie Langford

Misinformation and “Holy” undies

BJ White’s letter in last week’s GB Weekly pretty well gets to the bottom of an increasing problem… that of misinformation. There’s plenty of it out in the community. When asked about the source “from the internet” is a common response. One problem is you can find almost anything you want to ‘know’ about via an internet search, and it will be written or supported by “experts”. Another problem is that many “experts” have their own agenda for their comments which affects the “truth” of their arguments. Just check out some of the comments from the US president, or those who declare the Covid-19 pandemic is not real, or is a government hoax to gain control. Conspiracy theories abound. Just make sure you have really researched all sides of any topic so you can make an informed decision, and not perpetuate false ideas. Graeme Wells

Come and take a look at Community Gardens

The Community Organic Gardens on Waitapu Road exist for the benefit of you and me. The gardens are run by a trust board, which aims to serve our community in accordance with its lawful charitable purpose. The board recently rebranded the gardens as the Sustainable Living Centre, changing its purpose from organic growing to the promotion of sustainability. This Sunday at 1pm is the trust’s AGM, which is your oncea-year opportunity to take a look at how the board has been performing and to ensure it is following its own rules and those of Charities Services. Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting at the gardens, where you can find out what has been achieved over the last year, about the culture and organisation of the trust, and how the money donated to it is accounted for. You will have the opportunity to question the board members to find out their views on the proper purpose of the gardens, their overall vision and their strategies for achieving it, and to vote in a new board accordingly. Gita Krenek will get things started with a talk on biodynamics. If you care about our gardens, then please don’t miss this opportunity to come and take a look at what is going on and help the gardens grow in the way you wish. It is vital to show that we care. Steve Penny

Old photos of Commercial Street wanted

Golden Bay Museum’s summer exhibition will be focussing on Commercial Street mainly through old photographs. If anyone out there has any old photographs of the street and the buildings up to about the year 2000 please bring them into the museum for us to look at (and possibly scan) as soon as possible, the exhibition is being finalised now, so there is no time to lose. There are always unique photographs held in private homes and it would be a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase photographs that might not have been seen by the general public. We are open from 10am-3pm Monday to Thursday. Just drop in with the photographs during those hours. We would be most grateful. Sally Gaffney

Tasman BioStrategy

The report in the last Weekly of the BioStrategy meeting held the previous Monday evening included the statement “increase in mussel farming was of unanimous concern.” While there was some concern from some people about effects of mussel farming, there was unanimous interest in protecting the marine environment generally, an interest which is shared with the aquaculture industry. The BioStrategy will underpin TDC policy on environmental protection in the 2021 to 2031 Long term Plans. Celia Butler

How to beat Str8ts – Like Sudoku, no single number can repeat in any row or column. But... rows and columns are divided by black squares into compartments. These need to be filled in with numbers that complete a ‘straight’. A straight is a set of numbers with no gaps but can be in any order, eg [4,2,3,5]. Clues in black cells remove that number as an option in that row and column, and are not part of any straight.

BOOK REVIEW: The Glass Hotel

Bridge history at Bridgers Hollow

The new bridge at Bridgers Hollow writes the latest chapter in the history of the location. Photo: Submitted. ANITA PETERS


Emily St John Mandel is a Canadian writer and much of the action takes place in an idyllic location in British Columbia where she was born. The book begins with a dreamlike sequence which mysteriously foreshadows the conclusion of the narrative. We are then introduced to Paul, a 23-year-old student, drug addict and musician. His father abandoned him and his mother, when he was a child, for a young hippy poet with whom he had a daughter, Vincent. Subsequently Paul has led a chaotic life. He and Vincent meet over the years and establish a fragile relationship. After an incident in which a musician dies after Paul has carelessly passed on to him some dubious pills, Paul tracks down his half sister hoping to find some support. Together they celebrate the beginning of the 21st-century, half jokingly relieved to have survived what could have been the end of the world, but part again, each to their own life whatever it may be. Several years later Vincent now a beautiful and competent young woman is working as a receptionist at the five star Glass hotel in North Vancouver Island. The hotel is owned by a very wealthy New York businessmen, Jonathan Alkaitis. It is set in glorious surroundings and can only be reached by boat or helicopter. We find, after a bizarre incident at the hotel that Paul has also become employed there as a night houseman - Vincent has felt some responsibility to help her brother - but is forced to leave after his involvement in the incident is discovered. Vincent leaves shortly afterwards, when she becomes engaged to Alkaitis, but she leaves for a life of unimaginable wealth and luxury. The story now enters a different world - no longer the quiet world of lake and forest but the dangerous high powered territory of New York finance. Mandel describes in vivid detail the complex ventures that are undertaken in order to finance glittering lifestyles, and the ruthless schemes that take no consideration for the trusting investors. This part of the novel is fascinating and the reader becomes totally involved in the lives of the people who are brought together in the inevitable crisis, the catastrophic ways in which their lives are changed and their different responses. Vincent and Paul are caught up in these events and the different strands of their lives are woven together for awhile - Vincent having to make a momentous decision which once again changes the course of the narrative. The fractured but inescapable bond between brother and sister is explored with sympathy, and a fragile, life long sense of responsibility between theses siblings subtly conveyed . The conclusion of the novel echoes the very beginning, and is a moving completion of a story which deals with loss, ambition and the search for identity and is truly compelling. 6

In addition to the new shared pathway under construction between Paynes Ford and Takaka, the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) has also replaced the old footbridge spanning Bridgers Hollow, the dip in the highway just south of Takaka township. Historically, Bridgers Hollow has always been a trouble spot whenever the nearby Takaka River overflowed and flooded the deep creek below Dodson’s Road. During floods, Takaka and Western Golden Bay were often cut off from the south, and the swift flow sometimes even swept motorists into the adjacent paddocks. Since then, culverts and drainage have improved the crossing so that flooding is now seldom an issue. The hollow was the site of a historic tramway bridge that met its demise long ago, after one too many floods, but the foundations of the embankment where the tram ran, a Category 2 heritage listing under Pouhere Taonga Heritage NZ, were meantime being protected and maintained for future use. Around 1986, according to Noel Riley (then a GB building inspector), Nelson City Council marked a curved bridge from

a creek in Annesbrooke as due for replacement, and NCC’s engineering department granted Noel the structure free if he “took it away”. With the help of Sollys, it was transported over the Hill and set into position at Bridgers Hollow. The hollow was long associated with the early Bridger family, who lived close by at Kotinga Corner. In 1888, Mrs Bridger was even granted permission by the Road Board to ferry passengers across the Takaka River by boat or canoe for sixpence per person. The newest bridge is much more user-friendly, not only for pedestrians but also for buggies, mobility scooters and cyclists who often would have used the roadway due to the narrowness of the older curved bridge. The old bridge has been removed intact, and is being stored by Fulton Hogan while NZTA awaits community response to its invitation for proposals for its future use (Contact Annabel Chaney at Fulton Hogan). NZTA is also keen to hear of any other historical snippets relating to Bridgers Hollow for their own archives. Anyone with such information is asked to pass it on to NZTA at: frances.adank@nzta.govt.nz

Golden Bay Museum staff have recently installed a permanent exhibition that celebrates the main industries of Golden Bay, in particular coal, gold, graphite, timber, silver, paint, flax, marble, iron, asbestos, hydropower and dairy. “ We w a n t e d t o t e l l the story of Golden Bay/ Mohua’s many industries. They’re a major part of the Bay’s history,” said museum services manager Karen Johnson. “There are also endless smaller industries, but too many to mention.” The display cases contain intriguing relics of mostly long-gone local production, and reference people involved within each industry. Gold, one of the first industries in the 1830s, alongside asbestos, flax and timber, was responsible for the name Golden Bay (it was previously Massacre Bay). Reminders of life in the goldfields are evident in the gold samples, photographs and resident museum model, Jock, kneeling and panning gold on a “riverbank”, and in the accounts ledger and scales that belonged to John Lash from the Post Office at “Slateford”. After Charles Heaphy discovered coal in 1835, Westhaven became known commercially as Coal Harbour. Later, coal was found at Motupipi and Puponga, and is represented by various tools and a miner’s helmet and lamp. After forest clearance in the 1850s gave rise to farming and milling settlements, and by 1870 timber milling had become big business. In the timber display is an astonishingly huge stone adze of unknown provenance, used for felling trees. Around the same time, silver was being mined at Parapara. Māori were then commercially producing iron oxide paints from iron ore. They also ran a lucrative flax industry from the 1860s until 1907. Woven objects, tools for pounding and cutting

and harakeke paper are among examples shown. At Kairuru on the Takaka Hill, a marble quarry produced stones for building from 1916 to about 1931. The Onekaka Iron and Steel Company, which manufactured some of the many iron objects on display, began operating in 1902, but by 1935 was commercially uneconomic and was closed. A special feature of the exhibition, set around the museum’s “hut” is the story of Henry Chaffey’s involvement with the asbestos mine, opened in the 1890s in the Cobb Valley. A hydroelectric power station, also in the Cobb, was built in response to demand for

electricity. A limestone quarry at South Tata resulted in the Golden Bay Cement Company at Tarakohe, which ran from 1904 until 1988. Its vibrant social story is described photographically. Dairying has been the largest and is still the most enduring industry in the district. The Golden Bay Cooperative Dairy factory, which is still operating, opened in 1902 along with other smaller butter and cheese factories. This exhibition offers a comprehensive showcase of Golden Bay’s industrious past in an array of well-maintained relics. Golden Bay Museum Industries Exhibition Monday to Friday 10am-4pm; Saturday 10am-2pm.

Chief Fire Officer Philip Woolf is on the look-out for new volunteers to join the Takaka Volunteer Fire Brigade. The brigade is inviting the community to an Open Day on Saturday 3 October to find out more about volunteering and emergency response. Philip says they welcome people from different backgrounds and all ages. “We’re very keen on having diverse members and people with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. We have 16-year-olds join and we have 73-year-olds contributing, and that’s probably the uniqueness of it. “I began volunteering when my parents decided I needed a bit of guidance in life. I rocked up on a training night at 16 years and wondered what I was getting myself into. What keeps me volunteering is that it’s about contributing and supporting our community. Every time the siren goes, someone’s in need of help. That keeps me motivated.”

Volunteering is not just about being physically fit. There are different roles and something for most people. As well as firefighters, people can volunteer in operational support and brigade support roles. Operational support volunteers enable frontline firefighters to perform their duties safely and efficiently. Brigade support volunteers take care of the administration and making sure the brigade runs smoothly. The brigade responds to around 100 callouts each year – fire, motor vehicle accidents and medical incidents make up the bulk of calls they respond to – working alongside other emergency service providers. St John, Police, LandSAR and Civil Defence will also be at the Open Day to help raise awareness of what goes on behind the scenes. People interested in finding out more about volunteering or emergency services are invited to the Open Day at Takaka Fire Station on Saturday 3 October, 10am-1pm.

DOWN TO EARTH: Garden structures

Vertical structures that can be utilised to grow crops upward. Photo: Sol Morgan. SOL MORGAN

October is our main planting month, so get prepared and take advantage of the spring growing. Tending to the vegetable beds for upcoming planting is a priority now. Light tillage of surface weeds is recommended, but fork out pernicious weeds like couch grass and dock. Add manure and minerals. When preparing and planning, keep in mind vertical structures that can be utilised to grow crops upward. Heat-loving vegetables, which include tomatoes, chillies and eggplants, love a warm wall to grow against. The front of a house is ideal, especially if it is brick or stone, as it gains thermal mass on sunny days and helps these crops grow stronger. String lines can be attached to the bargeboard on which tomatoes, cucumbers or even beans can be trained. Another benefit can be added shade onto a deck in the middle of summer when these plants have grown tall. Fencelines are also great structures to use for climbing plants. Adding chicken mesh or the like will enable tendril climbers to climb up a fence. Bamboo can be cut, leaving short laterals, for the same climbers to grow up in garden beds. Bamboo can be made into tipis or tents. Stringlines can also be strung down in between

bamboo uprights. Another idea for beans, especially, is to have the bamboo on an angle running down the bed but also forming a tent when looking from the bed end. When mature, the beans will be left hanging in space for easy picking. Manuka or kanuka sticks are also useful framing poles. Making an H with a lateral running the length of a bed can support many climbing crops. Simply drop string lines down and tie to the base of climbers like tomatoes. Using flax cord is a more sustainable option, too. Another very useful climbing structure is builders 665 mesh. Either use 665 mesh standing vertical fixed to poles (similar to trellis) or you can have a much longer piece that forms an archway between two beds so mature vegetables drape downwards. The mesh can also be curled into a tube and filled with compost materials that (as they break down) feed climbing crops growing up outside. Using climbing structures creates spots underneath for those vegetables that enjoy some shade, like salads, brassicas, pumpkins and spinach. Making use of vertical space also means you have more room in the beds to pack in more vegetables, herbs and flowers. Happy planting.

IN GOOD TASTE: Fancy a Ruby?

Tuck into a Ruby: Curries suit any weather and are usually best cooked long and slow. Photo: Antony Dillon. FIONA MANSON

For those of us who weren’t born in the East End of London, a “Ruby” is Cockney for Ruby Murry, Curry. Although curry houses only set up in the UK around 200 years ago, there are now over 9000 curry houses throughout the nation. Voted the countries favourite food with the most popular dish going to Tikka Masala it was no surprise when in 2001 Britain’s foreign secretary Robin Cook referred to Chicken Tikka Masala as being a ‘true British national dish’. Curry is also popular in this country as we discovered after lockdown when in the first few weeks, we became a curry crazed nation and more than 40,000 curries were ordered online. This countries curry of choice is Butter Chicken, but we are apparently just beginning to get more adventurous, which is a good thing as there is much more to enjoy whether you are vegetarian or not. Indian cuisine goes back to almost 5000 years when different cultures travelled to India delivering a melting pot of flavours and ethnic influence. Each region in India uses different ingredients and cooking methods to create their own cuisine. These vary in thickness, creaminess, spice, heat and amount of rice used within the dish. What we call a curry in this country, is in India referred to by variety ie korma, madras, biriyani, vindaloo and phall etc. All varieties have their own heat scale, phall being the hottest and korma being mildest. These can also be broken down into mild, medium and hot. Everyone has their own tolerance to chili heat and although we can build up our level of heat tolerance over time, only we know what is good for us. The spices used generally used include turmeric, coriander, cumin, ginger and dried chili, but often include many more. Which reminds me of an old Indian joke: “My wife was sick to the stomach when I told her I put ginger in the curry. She really loved that cat”. Curries suit any weather and they are usually best cooked long and slow. They taste even better the next day, or the next, and can be served with rice, pompodoms, dhal, riata, naan bread, lime pickle etc. Use your slow cooker if you have one and make a lot as most curry’s also freeze well. Kerala-style fish curry 550g firm fish (groper, monkfish etc), cut into 2cm square pieces 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil 1 very thinly sliced onion 1 teaspoon of grated ginger 2 cloves of garlic, crushed Salt and pepper

1 Tablespoon of paprika ¼ (or less if you don’t like spicey) cayenne pepper ½ teaspoon of turmeric Pinch of sugar Juice of 1/2 lemon 125 ml coconut cream Sprinkle the fish with a little salt and allow to sit while you prepare the sauce. Put the coconut oil into a frying pan and melt. Add the onion slices and cook slowly until golden around the edges. This will take up to 10 minutes and it’s important not to rush this step as the caramelised onion will add sweetness and flavour to the finished dish. Next add the ginger and garlic and cook for one minute. Increase the heat and add 250ml water, paprika, cayenne pepper, turmeric, lemon juice, sugar, ¼ teaspoon of salt and lots of ground pepper. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat allowing the sauce to simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut cream and bring back to a simmer. Put the fish pieces into the pan in a single layer and cook gently spooning the sauce over them until they are cooked through. Serve with steamed broccoli, rice and naan bread. Potato chaat The word chaat refers to many different kinds of hot and sour food often served in India as snacks. Chaat can be made from cooked root vegetables, pulses and even fruit. The important thing to remember when making Chaat is to serve it freshly cooked and at room temperature. To refrigerate this dish would completely change the texture and flavour of the potatoes and the finished dish. Spring onions, finely sliced, could replace the coriander for those who can’t tolerate it! 650g waxy potatoes. Otherwise use potatoes that won’t break up once cooked. Cut into 1cm dice and boil in salted water until just tender. Drain well and place into a glass bowl. 1/2 teaspoon of salt ¼ (or less) of cayenne powder Freshly ground pepper ½ heaped teaspoon of toasted and ground cumin seeds 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice Chopped fresh coriander to serve Add all remaining ingredients to the potatoes and gently mix well. Taste for balance of spices. Serve at room temperature with the coriander sprinkled over the top.

Lonestar Farms and the wider community, we’ve taken another small step on our journey to restore thriving biodiversity in our own special corner of the world. We look forward to doing more over the coming years. Learn more and check out our video:

Full team get-togethers have been limited of late, for obvious


reasons, so it felt special to have some friendly faces gather for our annual Tree Planting Day in July. Our planting is usually scheduled for autumn, but as it was postponed due to the pandemic, we all found ourselves planting a wind-sculpted Cape Farewell in the middle of winter. Good thing our team has grit! Thanks to a team effort with DOC and the local community, we planted 1000 grasses, kanuka and cabbage trees in our Wharariki Ecosanctuary and the nearby Wharariki Wetland – all grown for the HealthPost Nature Trust from locally sourced seed. These plants will provide shelter and habitat for threatened species such as Nelson green gecko, and rare matuku (bittern) in the Wharariki wetland. Plus, the native vegetation buffer inside our predator-proof fence helps prepare the Ecosanctuary

We’re stoked to see our Wharariki Ecosanctuary has made the Herald Top 10 list ‘New Zealand’s best predatorfree wildlife sanctuaries’ Thanks to our customers for making this possible. Every

time you shop with us you help

support our HealthPost Nature Trust, restoring nature in our own backyard.
