Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
At the moment I am living my caravan in a community in Drury.
We have Free Range Eggs, Raw Milk and veges.
I work as a relief teacher and as a lab technician, having little time for gardening aspects, but I keep in touch and I help people designing and in working bees.
Hello Richard, I'm so sorry for not answering you back for so long, my husband had a massive stroke and life has been flipped for me. You had said: But, what is going on with the law S503? is that true or is a stupid conspiracy theory?
And other guys who are fined for catching rainwater?
Answer: From what information I have gathered, water, natural rain water, is so vital in so many areas and states with sensitive water issues. Needing rain water to perk into below ground aquafers that support many areas of Texas, New Mexico and other dry regions so every home, farm and ranch will have necessary water to operate. There are Ghost Towns in this country because wells that depend of rain water to fill them, have run dry. Rain run-off in creeks that feed larger streams are home to migrating salmon breeds and other animal breeds dependent on this water, they eat the salmon or the vegetation that grows because of the available water. Salmon depend on the rains and enter the stream mouths from the ocean during these rains to migrate up-river and lay their eggs. That's why the fishermen are out fishing in the rain. These delicate systems and habitat depend on rainwater for their existence. Truly, everything is connected.
Thanks for the welcome. I would have loved to come help out this weekend but I will be in Wellington visiting some of my partners family. I have joined the Auckland working Bee Group so hopefully I'll hear about the next one. Hope it goes well.
