Pollinators, Predators and Pests

The vast majority of the insects we see every day are beneficial or benign. I hope this group will provide a forum to discuss the insect world and all the wonderful and occasionally devastating ways the bugs interact with our gardens.

Partnerships in land.

I live in Auckland. I want to leave Auckland. Unfortunately the wife does not. Not able to/ doesn't want to participate in garden. Possible compromise. We live on the edge of north Auckland. Or Divorce?? (Bit reluctant after 30 years). I have been looking at land for a long time. I have noticed that small bits of land are considerably more expensive than larger bits when you break it down to the acre.Has anyone had any experience with buying land in non family partnerships? Any advice…See More

information wanted.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this. I am looking for someone who has some years of the self sufficiency experience preferably with a hectare or two and animals but not essential. Who has a partner who has a major physical disability. My wife has a major disability and she is unsure of how it would work out. I would love to be able to talk to someone who has been there. If any one knows someone like this please let me know. Thank you.
