I currently own and run two New Zealand based community websites:

NZ Weather - forms the hub of the New Zealand Weather Network and caters for weather discussion, charts, forecasts and storm tracking.

NZ Beekeepers - where the vision is for those who are experienced in keeping bees and those who are new to the hobby to come together in a place where they can share hints, tips and experiences to help protect and expand New Zealand honey bee population.
