Would anyone have any organic garlic bulbs for planting? I inadvertently ate my planting stash from last years harvest :(   Can pay or trade. Cheers

Food Bill

The Primary Production Select Committee is inviting public submissions on further proposed amendments by the Minister for Food Safety on the Food Bill. The closing date for submissions is Friday 16 August 2013.

The closing date for submissions is Friday, 16 August 2013

The Food Bill was returned to the Primary Production Select Committee for further consideration on 2 July 2013. The Minister for Food Safety, Hon Nikki Kaye has released a Supplementary Order Paper containing further proposed amendments to the bill. The Minister’s proposed amendments seek to clarify issues relating to industry programmes, food handler guidance, fundraising, seeds for sowing, regulations for charging fees, standards in relation to GM foods, and ensuring the legislation is aligned to recent legislative developments.

The bill is available for download from the `Related documents´ panel. Print copies can be ordered online from Bennetts Government Bookshops.

The committee requires 2 copies of each submission if made in writing. Those wishing to include any information of a private or personal nature in a submission should first discuss this with the clerk of the committee, as submissions are usually released to the public by the committee. Those wishing to appear before the committee to speak to their submissions should state this clearly and provide a daytime telephone contact number. To assist with administration please supply your postcode and an email address if you have one.

Further guidance on making a submission can be found from the Making a Submission to a Parliamentary Select Committee link in the `Related documents´ panel.

Does anyone want some fig tree prunings.  The original cutting came from a very large old tree at the mine managers property which was beside the old, no longer there, mine lake.

Hi Eddie and David, I rang Faye at the Waihi Resource Centre and she said it's okay for me to drop some plants in there to be picked up by you.  The resource centre is open from 9am to 3pm and I will drop them there lunchtime tomorrow, Tuesday, 2 July. I'll wrap them in moist paper and put them in a plastic bag so don't worry about them drying out.  By the way I have some fig tree cuttings if you want them.  The original cutting came from a very large tree at the mine managers property which was beside the old, no longer there, mine lake.  If you don't want them just leave them at the resource centre and the staff can take them or give them away.  If dropping off at the centre doesn't suit please let me know.  Cheers

Katherine, love some Boysenberry Brulee. I live in Waihi, but pass Tanner's Point road weekly. How do we arrange delivery? David

I'd love some Boysenberry Brulee plants Katherine. I've sent you a friend request so we can arrange where I can collect if you're still offering. I live at tanners point... Thanks, Edwina

Am digging out some Boysenberry Brulee plants, from the Incredible Edibles stable. Extremely vigorous, extremely thorny, wonderfully delicious black berries.  Suggest growing on strong tall support and remembering to tie shoots up regularly. Strongly suggest that they are planted in a garden of their own and surrounded by the lawn so suckers can be mown over.  Free to any brave takers.  Can drop off in Waihi.  Katherine

I'll be there in principle and spirit... got prior commitments :-(
