Hi Ricardo,

We don't live in Auckland, live on an island quite far away but in Ak city zoning.  Would be good to share work/plums etc with you and we have been sharing with other islanders.

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.

Hi Ricardo,


I was in Egypt for 6 years, Dubai for the same and most recently Bahrain.  I did 15 years in total and am now more than ready to enjoy all the NZ has to offer....including the mud and rain!

I would love a chance to learn how to grow veg and figure the best way is to get my hands dirty by joining others with more experience.

Thanks for your welcome!

24th is no good for me. Church starts at 10:30am. In fact I can't really commit to any working bees; to much to do.

Hi Ricardo


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
Thanks for the heads up. I'm busy this Saturday, but keep me updated! Definitely a keen bean for future working bees.

Hi Ricardo, thanks for the offer but I dont have enough garden to need a hand.  I will try and come to you though if we arent away that weekend.

Hi Ricardo, I am quite busy right now with a few things that need my attention when they arise so I cannot commit. But I will pencil it in and turn up if permitted. Give me the address.

Hi, the tree pruning workshops go until 12.30 but can go a bit longer if you want more practice.
At 10:17pm on May 24, 2011, Pete Russell said…
No probs Ricardo.  Actually your call-out was raised in our crew meeting today so you can expect to be contacted by Annalily soon.
At 10:02pm on May 24, 2011, Pete Russell said…

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.  :-)

What's Buzzing?
