Making a midwinter splash

Taking the plunge: hardy locals enjoy a dip off Collingwood boat ramp at last Sunday’s midwinter swim. Photo: Jo Richards. JO RICHARDS

A dull, damp midwinter day at Collingwood boat ramp. Perhaps not the best time for a dip in the briny, but that didn’t deter a large handful of hardy locals who jumped off the jetty and into the grey, glassy sea on Sunday. The cause was a good one – to raise awareness of mental health issues, especially amongst men; the effect was clear for all to see – the community coming together to talk, have fun and exchange a bit of banter. The “Grab Life by the Balls” (GLBTB) event was the brainchild of Nick Boyer, a Bainham farmer, who has first-hand experience of severe depression, having been in a very dark place towards the end of his 10-year stint as a dairy farmer in Australia. “I had a breakdown,” says Nick. “Two years ago I walked out of my cowshed crying. I had driven myself so far I was mentally tapped out.” He found it difficult to ask for help. “It was so hard for me to reach out,” says Nick. “I felt embarrassed; I felt I was a failure and I wasn’t good enough.”

But Nick did get help and returned to Golden Bay at the end of last year, bringing with him the Aussie GLBTB concept, which he explains is about “championing mateship with positive messages around men’s physical and mental health”. Nick’s get-togethers include summer barbecues in Takaka and regular Sunday lunchtime drinks-and-nibbles at Tinky’s Tavern in Collingwood. But all have the same purpose – to make time and space for conversation and to overcome the stigma surrounding mental health. “I want to reach out and create a positive environment,” says Nick. “Getting people together for a yarn helps normalise it.” He is under no illusions about the scale of the task, estimating that “over 50 per cent” of people are affected by mental health, including many isolated farmers who suffer in silence. “The generations have changed,” says Nick. “Now, if you’re not getting out off the farm, no-one’s coming in.” There were plenty getting off the farm on Sunday, including the Langford clan –

Although there will be no local board established for Golden Bay, scope remains for expanding community-based decisionmaking via the existing community board (GBCB). Last year, following a two-year campaign by the Working Group for a Golden Bay Local Board (WGGBLB), the Local Government Commission (LGC) declined its application citing uncertainty over costs, lack of community support, and opposition from Tasman District Council (TDC). This came as a bitter blow to campaigners, especially as 60 per cent of the 800 public submissions supported their application. However instead of retaining the status quo, the LGC, supportive of community board empowerment, initiated a dialogue between the main parties – LGC, TDC, GBCB, WGGBLB and Manawhenua ki Mohua – with the intention of exploring potential delegations of responsibility and improving ways of working between board and council. Last December, at the first of two meetings, it was agreed that TDC would report on its strategy to empower the GBCB, which would eventually be set out in a Terms of Reference (TOR) document, while the board was tasked with preparing a Memorandum of Understanding (now referred to as a charter) detailing how it would improve community representation. During a further meeting, held on 2 June, the council’s chief executive officer (CEO) Janine Dowding advised of legal constraints relating to TDC’s delegations to the GBCB – currently limited to the Dog Control Bylaw, Easter trading hours, Christmas street decorations, and allocation of small discretionary grants. While cautious, TDC’s CEO has professed support for community board empowerment. In a letter to LGC’s CEO Donald Riezebos, dated 10 June 2019, and co-signed by Janine and mayor Tim King, it was stated: “Council would like the Commission to consider whether increasing the delegations to the existing community boards in Motueka and Golden Bay is a more effective and efficient way of enabling increased local decisionmaking in order to deliver local activities and services. Council is happy to work with the Commission on ways to enhance the current delegations to the two community boards, should the Commission decide that this is the preferred option for governance of the Tasman District.” In 2020, the LGC did indeed decide that enhanced delegation was the preferred...

Wayne, Tyler and their three boys. Shortly after emerging from the family’s immersion, Wayne admitted that it was “warmer than expected” and was happy to get wet for “an awesome cause”. But the Langfords weren’t the first to make a splash; that honour went to birthday boy Daniel Moretti who entered the water with an impressive swallow dive. The chilly midwinter swim may have been about blokes for blokes, but whole families warmed to the idea – something that doesn’t surprise Nick. “We get a lot of female support.” Renee Riley and daughter Lydia were amongst those happily taking the plunge. According to Lydia “it was cold, but it was fun,” while her Mum, pronounced it “invigorating”. Renee helped Nick to publicise the event, using her Bay Fitness Facebook page to reach out to the community. “As soon as I heard about it I wanted to get behind it,” explains Renee. “I’m always trying to get men involved in exercise and fitness.” Continued on page 2

Nick is very grateful for Renee’s support, and to Georgie Moleta who provides the sossies for his barbecues. As GLBTB is currently an Aussie registered charity, Nick says he can’t yet apply for NZ Government funding, so is reliant on the generosity of others. “I say that ‘donations are accepted but not expected’.” GLBTB offer conversation and nibbles at Tinky’s Tavern, Collingwood every Sunday at 1pm. For more information phone Nick on: 022 466 7115.

EMPOWERING GB COMMUNITY BOARD Continued from page 1 ...option, while recognising the parameters set by the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA02). Although, under the LGA02, key regulatory functions cannot be delegated to community boards, the legislation clearly states that councils have an obligation regarding other responsibilities: “A territorial authority must consider whether or not to delegate to a community board if the delegation would enable the community board to best achieve its role.” Janine’s response to The GB Weekly’s request for clarification of TDC’s stance was delegated to her community relations manager Chris Choat who explained that two key documents are currently being prepared – the TOR “containing amended delegations and a new mutually agreed purpose for both community boards”; and the charter which “will provide a shared understanding of how the council and the community board will operate in their dealings with the Golden Bay community and how this triumvirate will enhance governance in the Bay”. The TOR, which should specify all delegations agreed by community board and TDC staff, is scheduled to go before full council for approval on 30 June. The document also includes a new statement of purpose for the district’s community boards, which is to “be an effective, authoritative, informed and respected voice of the community with influence over matters of local significance”. One of those who will be considering the TOR on 30 June is Golden Bay ward councillor Celia Butler, who says she is “supportive” of delegations, but believes each should be considered on its merits. “I don’t support delegations for the sake of making an ideological point.” Celia points out that the legislation governing delegation prescribes what is a costly and time-consuming procedure, and

argues that any delegation needs to relate to issues that have aspects unique to Golden Bay, and where community-based decision-making is more appropriate. “Easter trading is a good example,” says Celia. “A future delegation could be prioritising of new footpaths.” The charter, still very much a work in progress, will not include the scope of the GBCB’s responsibilities, meaning it will have little influence over delegations. GBCB chair Abbie Langford explained that the charter is being drafted with input from TDC and the LCG before it goes out to the Golden Bay community for consultation. “I’m not sure when, or what the consultation will look like yet. The board will need to discuss that, but I am envisioning the document will be released with a feedback form,” says Abbie, who is also unsure of the exact timeline. “There is no formal final deadline, but personally I would like to see this completed and adopted by November.” WGGBLB secretary Tony Lawton considers the TOR the pivotal document and says it should also be subject to public consultation. “I’d hope we are all sensible enough to realise delegations set with the Golden Bay community’s input, via meaningful consultation, and by mutual agreement with the council, will lead to far better outcomes for everyone concerned than if TDC takes a unilateral approach.” He believes the TOR must accommodate the ambitions of future elected representatives who may be more willing to assume increased responsibilities. “Even if we don’t get a material increase in delegations now, many people in this community, would like to see the Terms of Reference provide a pathway to meaningful delegations in the future.” He would also like to see a well-defined framework adopted. “Clarity over what principles will be applied by TDC in determining any future delegations would be a good thing for our community to know””

Belinda honoured for service to St John Land Clearance Groundcare Hedges Lawns


Belinda Barnes, real estate agent at First National, has been awarded admission to The Honourable Order of St John of Jerusalem as a member. In recognition of her services to the organisation, Belinda was inaugurated at an investiture ceremony held at the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral on 29 May. Nomination for the award happens via recommendation by two people from within St John. They remain anonymous to the recipient. St John is the only independent organisation in New Zealand (apart from the government) with an honours system conferred by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Comparable to the Queen’s Honours, the Order of St John bestows membership of a chivalric order on the recipient. “The Order of St John goes back centuries to the Middle Ages,” says Belinda. “Nowadays, St John is about saving lives and helping people. That is what’s important. Our people do this voluntarily in Golden Bay, so it’s hugely rewarding for me to be honoured in this way. I see it as a tribute to all those who work in St John in the region.” Belinda believes the award is based on work she did 18 months ago. That included the building of the Collingwood station, which she undertook with fellow volunteer Stuart Chalmers. She also oversaw the demolition of the old medical surgery in Edinburgh Street, Takaka, and the upgrading of the driveway and parking area at the Takaka station. Initially, Belinda volunteered to work as secretary for the Golden Bay St John area committee. Over the past 10 years that role has grown from taking minutes to making decisions. She is assisted by Victoria Saunders, who is the one other committee member. All decisions have to be approved by the Trust Board before they can be actioned. “I think the most important thing is that people have a face they know as a contact. If I go into the Wholemeal, I get asked about the supporters scheme – I’m the go-to person – and I’m open to questions. If I don’t know the answers, I’ll find out.” When she first moved to Golden Bay from the Middle East, Belinda’s motivation to become involved in community groups was to get out and meet people. For 20 years, she had worked as a human resources manager for three hotels, where she was responsible for the welfare of 1400 people. “That’s what I do now – look after people, whether it be St John or real estate, or anything.” Put simply, “I get my buzz out of people,” said Belinda. Currently on the Golden Bay Housing Trust, undertaking all the funding for the primary schools’ speech competitions, and having previously been a trustee on the Whittaker Trust, she

LE T TERS TDC still not listening

Tasman District councillors and our community board are positive about the improved relationship that TDC now has with our community. Apparently the complete about-turn decision made regarding the grandstand is a prime example of TDC listening to us. I don’t get it. TDC have budgeted $900,000 to upgrade. The community never asked for an upgrade. We get to fund any cost overruns. This implies some sort of partnership with the community, but there has not been any public consultation regarding cost overruns, and to my knowledge there has been no legal contract drawn up to this effect. What happens when the project is started, goes over budget, and the community doesn’t want to cough up yet more money for an underused facility? I’m completely neutral on the grandstand issue, but this whole affair still smacks of TDC giving us a fait accompli. Gaylene Wilkinson

Dam inquiry, or whitewash?

Lets help TDC by providing them with the results of their inquiry into what went wrong with the dam, thereby saving $170,000 of ratepayer money – plus any “unforeseen” blowouts to that amount: • The investigators found that nobody is to blame. • The engineering reports provided were adequate and could not have predicted the geological challenges. • There was no single root cause of what went wrong. • No lack of robustness was found in the original cost estimate for the project. • Council has learnt from this experience There you have it. No need to spend money or time on a tin of whitewash notes to the report: • “Nobody” has since retired to somewhere in Bali and cannot be traced • We didn’t know it was clay and not rock until it got wet and runny • So that we could stay within the $170,000 budget, no root cause analysis has been carried out because it wasn’t part of the scope of the inquiry • We made absolutely sure that those that needed to be shielded from responsibility have been, and will continue as before • Council has learnt - from this experience - that there’s always next year Gary Thorpe

Waimea Dam warnings ignored

There were three letters in last week’s GB Weekly with which I share sentiment. Gary Thorpe is bang on with his statement that our current councillors have lost control of our council. Tony Lawton and Roland Toder, who state a dam investigation must be a public inquiry. The third from Louise Coleman who states our two councillors did not understand the key financials of the dam funding options. Option D was much better for non-irrigation ratepayers. Why did our current representatives not go with Cr Greening’s motion back in 2018 when he proposed a hold on the dam to examine the financials and the facing uncertainty of continuing with the dam? It is clear they let down the ratepayers of the whole district (by the overwhelming vote for option D) not once, by not supporting Cr Greening in 2018, but again by not voting for option D in the recent vote. How can they be held to account? That must be addressed in the future elections. We read in Newsline (issue 499) that TDC’s CEO Janine Dowding will proceed with an independent investigation to provide transparency around decision making for the dam project.

Making a stink

I, along with a few other Pohara residents, am concerned about the close proximity of the sewage system in Pohara to waterways. It is three metres from Pohara Valley stream. The leaks and smell coming from the area are affecting the water where it enters the sea. The sewage should be at least 50 metres from the river and sea. We would like to see it removed asap. Thanks. Cath Halliwell

Keep dogs on the leash

I would like to ask people walking dogs at, and near, Pohara Beach and golf club to take a leash and use it. Not all dogs are friendly to strange dogs and people. This year my dog and I are having scary encounters with different off-leash dogs running up to us growling, stalking, attacking, standing over my dog. This is not OK. It’s terrifying and unnecessary. I am yelling at people to control their dangerous dog. Ridiculous situations. Please just use a leash, control your dog and stop it bothering me. I am surprised at the leads I don’t see people carrying. This beautiful beach should be admired and enjoyed by us all safely; teach your dog to be nice. Please use a lead and stop terrifying old ladies and birds. Glenda Walker

The case for robust representation

In a representative democracy, we entrust those we elect to make decisions for us. To deserve this trust, they must have the backbone and principles to stand up for what they believe in rather than blow with the wind of popular opinion, bow to the baying mob or allow themselves to be bamboozled by bureaucrats. They are representatives, not delegates who dance to our tune, as famously asserted by the British MP Edmund Burke. Comprehensive election campaigns are essential for us to properly assess candidates’ character, core beliefs, vision and judgement before sealing our approval with our votes, but we rarely know much about them. This letters page is an ideal forum to achieve this, a place where we can really get to know the upstanding and outstanding champions of our community. We are blessed with many regular contributors here, who demonstrate through their letters their suitability for public office, if only we could convince them to stand. Our two councillors have shown they have backbone, but their judgement on the dam has been brought into serious question by two very fine letters from Tony Lawton/Roland Toder and Louise Coleman last week, and they now need to explain themselves. Did they support an inadequate internal investigation (as suspiciously endorsed by the TDC Mayor and CEO) into the dam blowouts, or did they stand firm for a robust independent inquiry? Can they refute that the debt will remain with ratepayers under revised option A, or did they get that badly wrong? Steve Penny

Business as usual: Sue Dasler and Jon Fraser, new owners of Collingwood’s Courthouse Cafe. Photo: Jo Richards. JO RICHARDS

The new owners of Collingwood’s Courthouse Cafe are making sure that it’s business as usual at the township’s popular watering hole. Sue Dasler and Jon Fraser recently took over from previous owner Kylie Jamieson and say that, although it’s changed hands, the cafe’s winning recipe will remain the same. “It was clear to us that you can’t change the Courthouse Cafe,” says Sue. The couple recognise that a key ingredient in the cafe’s success is the people who work there. “We are keeping the wonderful staff; we feel so lucky to have them here, helping us to transition,” says Jon, who is open about his and Sue’s lack of experience. “We announced to staff that we knew nothing”. While they admit to knowing little about the hospitality business, Sue and Jon are quite familiar with Golden Bay – and the Collingwood area – having raised a family just over the Hill, and more recently bought the bach behind the cafe. “We lived in Motueka before moving to Wellington 10 years ago,” says Sue, who enthuses about the Bay. “We love this side

of the Bay. Collingwood has a really nice atmosphere; it’s a lovely seaside village.” The transition from their Wellington home to their new life in Collingwood is not just about shipping personal goods and chattels; Sue, an accomplished potter, is shifting her established studio and gallery out of the capital and into the accommodation block adjacent to the cafe. “I hope to get set up in August,” says Sue, who has plans to develop the space between the two buildings. Jon explains that his work as an architect will see him retain a professional link with the capital, although his base will be in Collingwood. “I can work from home here – we’ve learnt that from Covid – but I’ll work in Wellington on a fortnightly basis.” Returning to the cafe business, the couple are quick to acknowledge the achievements of their predecessor. “We really appreciate the quality of the business that Kylie set up; she has built it into a thriving business with lots of local support,” says Jon who is clear about their new role. “It’s important to keep the cafe going strong.”

Last Saturday Forest and Bird Golden Bay members got together for a planting day at the Taupata gravel reserve. They erected signage at the site saying “Sleeping zone for shorebirds at high tide. Thanks for not disturbing them.” Forest and Bird Golden Bay is aware of the importance of educating the local community and visitors to Golden Bay so they can understand the needs of shorebirds and allow them the space they require. Let’s face it we wouldn’t want people traipsing through our bedrooms at night.

New artists at Paper Scissors Rock RONNIE SHORT

The artists’ collective, Paper Scissors Rock, has recently welcomed two new members. Ute Schroder and Trish Sullivan are both excited to be part of the group, which is housed in the gallery/shop behind Earth Gems and Wholemeal Cafe. Joining the four current artists – Hesta Macready, Michelle Domett, James Watson and Emma Lay – Ute brings mixed media paintings and Trish her range of funky knitted items under her brand name, Freckle. Founding members Hesta and Michelle are now in their eighth year of trading as Paper Scissors Rock. James, who has been a member for four years, has found “the time has gone really fast”. Emma joined in November. They all welcome Ute and Trish to the team. “It all adds diversity to the works in the gallery,” says Hesta. Trish, who is relatively new to Golden Bay, says she is excited both to be here and to be part of the collective, contributing her craft. She has already sold several of her knitted creations. Ute enjoys exploring, playing creatively and doing new things, and says she is enjoying working with a group of creative friends. “It was a wonderful opportunity to get involved and show some of my work and share.” “I love the new energy new members bring – and new ideas,” added Michelle. Emma says feels that working in the gallery has opened her up to creating quite different work. “It’s great to be part of the collective,” she says. “It’s nice being out of home …to meet people and get feedback…and it’s nice for locals to buy that special something that is locally made.” Further contributors who work on commission are past member Sharon Trustum (ceramics); Tania Carey (pottery); Paper Scissors Rock artists from left: Michelle Domett, Trish Sullivan Silverfinch (ceramic pots with indoor plants) and Daniel Jessep Ute Schroder, Hesta Macready, Emma Lay and James Watson.

Blending academia with romanticism, existentialism with social commentary, coated with a dusting of sassy mischief, Julia Hardie is looking forward to sharing her spoken word performance at the Mussel Inn. Photo: Submitted.

Julia Hardie describes herself as a spiritual empiricist, a lyrical anarchist...or a woman using words to try and bridge the gap between the internal and external worlds. Julia has had varying degrees of success as she has explored these two worlds. But in the process she has come up with some pretty nifty rhymes and a unique performance style that captivates her audience and holds them spellbound. Her style is a mix of rap and slam and spoken word that gives her performance poetry a delicious and thought-provoking edge. The stage will be Julia’s later this month when she performs at Acid on the Microphone, Golden Bay Live Poets Society’s open mic night at the Mussel Inn. “Julia is a local poet who has performed art our open mic nights in the past,” says Golden Bay Live Poets spokesman Mark Raffills. “Lately we have dubbed these nights ‘Acid On The Microphone’, which is a line from a Bob Dylan song. “We plan to use these nights in the coming months to feature some of our local poets who are making a bit of an impact. Julia is our first and we are looking forward to a performance of word-smithing that is something quite special.” Golden Bay Live Poets Society presents Julia Hardie at the Mussel Inn on Thursday 24 June. There is a $5 cover charge on the door and the programme will kick off at 7.30pm with half an hour of open mic participants (poets and singers, register on the night). Julia will take the stage after that with further open mic performances taking place after the break. 6


Farm’s historical legacy recognised

A Golden Bay family has been recognised in a special ceremony in Lawrence by Century Farms New Zealand. The organisation has for the past 15 years looked to honour the perseverance of farming families and preserve their historical legacy by lodging their stories with the Alexander Turnbull Library. The Lindsay farm at Uruwhenua was the oldest farm recognised with a Sesquicentenial Award this year in acknowledgement of 162 years of continuous family ownership. Currently farmed by Ross Lindsay as a mixed sheep, beef and fo re s t r y o p e ra t i o n , t h e hard scrubby terraces were originally settled by John Lindsay, one of the original settlers In the area. John, and later his brother J a m e s a n d s i s t e r J a n e, immigrated to New Zealand from the Scottish lowlands. The Lindsays were well known in the Upper Takaka area. They owned several blocks of land on either side of the Takaka river and in East Takaka. At one stage John had a small trading store to help service the gold miners who were prospecting in the Waitui. He also ran a ferry service across the Takaka river at Uruwhenua and, along with James, helped establish the bridle path over the Takaka Hill. The 50-acre parcel of land that has been recognised by Century Farms was purchased for 25 pounds from the New Zealand Company in 1859.

John, who like his sister, remained unmarried gifted the parcel of land to his nephew James Fredrick, while Jane inherited the balance of his estate, later gifting land at the end of Uruwhenua Road for a school to be built. James Fredrick was gifted the farm in 1902 and in 1905 used timber milled off the farm to build the house that remains there today. It cost the princely sum of 26 pounds, 6 shillings and 3 pence. Following his death in 1941 the property was farmed as an Brothers John and James Lindsay (photo taken around 1875), who settled in Uruwhenua in 1856 and 1860 respectively.

They ran both the farm passed to Lyle who farmed it until his death in 1978 sheep and dairy cows with following a tractor accident. It was then passed to his nephew cream separated and sold to Ross Lindsay. Farming in his own right in Hamama, Ross the dairy factory in Takaka and undertook a lifetime’s work to turn the tired and rundown farm into the neat, well functioning unit that it is today.

Honours for Bainham Rural Women

Kia ora whanau, • Apologies for the thin blue line last week in Golden Bay, two of us were away and Dean inhaled toxic fumes at a traffic incident on the Takaka Hill, requiring a few days R and R. In relation to that incident on 9 June, the Police Commercial Vehicle Inspection Unit are investigating. A truck driver lost two 1000-litre containers off the back of his truck near Horseshoe Bend, causing the contents to pour onto the road. The fire service quickly took control and contained the chemical. Thanks for people’s patience whilst the clean-up took place and the road was closed. • Police are dealing with a number of youths at the moment who have taken it upon themselves to bully other kids. Whilst this sort of behaviour is usually dealt with in school, when it occurs outside of school, it can become a police matter. As a community we need to not put up with unkindness and help these kids become better humans by addressing their bad behaviour. If you witness bullying, confront the individual and let them know that it won’t be tolerated. Phone their parents and let them know what you witnessed. We all have a role to play. • 13 June: Police attended a crash on Abel Tasman Drive near Selwyn Street at 4.30am. A number of bulls had escaped from a paddock and one was struck and killed by the poor motorist who had no time to react in the darkness. This could easily have involved injury or death to the motorist had the vehicle (now written off ) not been as robust as it was. A suggestion has been made that somebody may have opened the gate maliciously. I hope this is not the case. If you see stock on the road please phone 111 immediately and, if you are able, try to help by warning other motorists and encouraging the stock into a secure paddock. • 14 June: A 46-year-old local female was forbidden to drive for driving without a current driver’s licence. Check your expiry dates on your licences please. • A reminder to drive to the conditions as winter sets in. Expect to see us out and about enforcing road safety. Remember it’s 20kmph maximum past school buses regardless of which direction you are travelling in.

Honours received by nine members of Bainham Rural Women have recognised their active contribution to their branch and their community. Some received Life Membership awards on Wednesday 9 June, and others were recognised with Branch Honour Bars or Service Simply Given awards. It was a day of celebration, stories, and wonderful memories of the friendships and fellowship built between women over many years. Two ladies went to their first meeting in the Bainham hall on the same day 52 years ago, with the motivation “If you go, then I’ll go”. They have both been part of the group ever since. Over the years there would have been hundreds of meetings, motions and minutes to keep the branch alive. The members have catered for community events, fundraised thousands of dollars for good causes, “done” flowers for many funerals and weddings, and organised the iconic annual Bainham Christmas Tree party. Also important, they have connected with other branches through provincial meetings and events like Unity Day and Harvest Festivals, as well as engaging with Rural Women nationally by attending conferences and submitting remits.

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. Glance at the solution to The solutions will be published here in the next issue. see how ‘straights’ are formed.

The members honoured were not just those who have taken on the responsibility of being in office. They have also baked, organised social events, sold raffle tickets, worked as “elves” for Santa, and brought the branch into modern times by doing online banking and digital newsletters. When added together, the nine members who received their Life Membership on this occasion have totalled an amazing 411 years in Rural Women. Others are yet to be recognised. Branch secretary Lynne Etheredge went back over records, and she and president Carolyn McLellan secretly organised these presentations. They realised that no awards had been given for 40 years, so they made a start. Carolyn is quick to say that “every member is valued”. The branch welcomes every woman, and everyone is important. The group is also there for young women who arrive in the district as sharemilkers and dairy workers. It gives them somewhere to belong, even if they don’t stay in the area for long. As one member reflected: “Rural Women is the glue that joins this community together.” Rural Women NZ is a national organisation founded in 1925 by women for women, with the aim of serving and supporting their communities. The Bainham branch has been serving and supporting the Aorere Valley and beyond for over 80 years.

A man, a garden and the house of many people ROSA VOLZ

“There is something about being immersed in nature that is intrinsic to wellbeing and building a community,” says Elliot Cleland who was recently appointed as gardens manager at the Golden Bay Sustainable Living Centre (SLC), aka the Community Gardens. “It’s a dream job; I feel a lot of joy that I get to do my work here.” First established in 1986, SLC in Waitapu Road is an organic community garden and community resource o p e rat i n g u n d e r t h e Te Wharerangi Charitable Trust. Te Wharerangi means “The house or place of many people”. It is a vibrant, wellestablished organic garden and orchard, offering the community (and a range of institutions) a space to grow, learn and engage with nature. On the afternoon that The GB Weekly visits, the gardens look magical. Elliot introduces thriving vegetable furrows, a hothouse, citrus, orchards and beds impregnated with mushroom spores. There are allotments available, and he has witnessed more movement towards community self-sufficiency. “There are people in the

community who no longer use the supermarket [to buy veges] as they grow their own.” Beneath the surface (in more ways than one) there are more diverse projects underway. The team has built and is trialling a Johnson-Su Bioreactor. This is a complex composting system whereby material is composted aerobically (as opposed to the more traditional anaerobic method). This encourages a complete biological breakdown of compost materials and results in a microbially diverse, fungal-dominant product. The team is also investigating making biochar, which is used as a soil ameliorant for both carbon sequestration and soil health benefits. Elliot dreams of the gardens one day “making

a biochar kiln available to the community”. Originally from Lancashire, Elliot travelled to New Zealand on a working visa, discovering the Bay on a rock-climbing expedition to Paines Ford in early 2019. He has a background in construction and landscaping, and clearly has a passion and a wealth of knowledge across the discipline of organic and sustainable gardening practices. Elliot was drawn to the Bay because of its people, landscape and community. “The people have been kind and welcoming. I feel a connection. This is where I fell in love with the soil and learnt what it means to be a community.” Not to mention this is where he first met and fell in love with

his partner, “over there by the herb spiral.” Recently, SLC used the services of a professional facilitator to define the garden’s vision for the next three to six months. Elliot explains there are two main goals: “To bring youth into the centre by building relationships with Golden Bay High School (GBHS)” right next door, and “To create a more functional environment by concentrating on infrastructure”. This is already taking shape. There is an established relationship with GBHS and an application has recently been made for funding from a community grant to run an afterschool gardening club with students. Elliot says that in practical terms, infrastructure improvements will take the form of “improved signage, ‘productionising’ the hothouse, creating allotments for the public, and controlling ove rgrow n a re a s o f t h e gardens.” Elliot encourages those wishing to play a part in SLC – or who are simply curious – to “come and have a chat, walk the gardens or attend one of the soon-to-be-launched Community Fridays”. The garden is a resource for the community, by the community and it is accessible and available to all.

Great hospitality options in Pōhara & the boat ramp or Golf Course just minutes away. Memories in the making right here! Call James for further information on the Pōhara Heights Subdivision.
