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.
Hi Ricardo. The only reason it is not showing is because the groups are sorted by most active. If you sort by latest activity it comes up there or you can search for Working Bees Auckland in the search box on the groups page. Hope that helps. :-)
I no longer have the planter with the windscreen; gave it away to another Ooooby member as I moved from Auck to Chch. However, it worked beautifully and I would highly recommend making one. Works best to raise seedlings in. The only thing I would say is watch it carefully in the summer months or on really hot days/ best to leave out of the direct sunlight on those days or just leave the glass open, but loved it for raising seedlings in.
