Off-the-grid ambitions

Big plans ...

Frustration at the time it takesto

turn bare landinto serviced

sectionshas prompted Garry

Robertsontolaunch aradical

new approach to resolving New

Zealand’shousing crisis.

He is using hispartly

developed OceanRidge

subdivisioninKaikoura as atest

bed to launch a300­section

housing development thatwill be

completely off the grid. All its

services will be run fromwithin

the development instead of by

the Kaikoura DistrictCouncil.

The scale of the proposal to

produce sustainable, good

quality, fit­for­purpose

mainstreamhousingisbelieved

to be aNew Zealand first,ifnot a

worldfirst for an initiative of this

scale.

‘‘Allthis can be achievedby

removingthe needtowait as long

as fiveto15years for rezoning

and servicing.’’

Garryisbehind the deliveryof

around 15,000 sections to New

Zealanders in his lifetime,

making him one of thecountry’s

most prolific land aggregators.

He has the backing of the

Kaikoura council and the

support of LincolnUniversity.

He says councils andother

authorities take ridiculous

lengths of time and put

ridiculously high compliance

hurdles in front of developers

trying to deliver sections to

prospective homeowners.

All of these outdated systems

and processes,hesays,are

fuellingthe current housing

crisis.

His extensive experience

shows that, in Auckland,these

delays can add as much as 30

percent (or typicallyaround

$200,000) to the cost of asection.

‘‘The current systemisbroken

and simply doesn’t work anymore

or we wouldn’t be in the mess we

currentlyare housing­wise.’’

‘‘This timecosts tens, if not

hundreds of millions, in legal,

holding, finance and planning

costs across the country each

year.’’

Theend result of his so­called

TEAL Initiative would be a

completely changedpricing

model forhomesdue to more

timely development.

He believes further costefficiencieswill

be achieved by

using smart technologies suchas

wind­power generation, and

fresh and waste­water systems.

Garry’s vision for Kaikoura is

that OceanRidgewillbecome a

researchlaboratory and testing

ground for sustainable urban

designtechnology, attracting

researchersand innovatorsfrom

aroundthe world to the region so

they can refine their product to

the pointwhere it can easily be

incorporated intomainstream

residential and commercial

developments.

He has been refining this

concept for manyyears and says

the pennyfinally droppedwhen

he learned about Bill and

Melinda Gates’support for the

omni processor –adevice that

converts sewageinto clean,

drinkable water in minutes,

while producing energy to

incinerate the remaining waste

solids.

‘Iwas after achallenge’

By RACHEL MACDONALD

KorbynNewman onceconsidered horses

to be abit intimidating. But they provided

awelcome chance to get out of the

classroom.

Today,heislearning the ropesasa

harness racingdriver,havingspentthe

last four years workingwith horses.

Growing up in WestEyreton, Korbyn

went to the localprimaryschool,movedto

OxfordArea Schoolfor his intermediate

years,then attended St Bede’sin

Christchurchfor highschool.

‘‘I didn’t like school;Idon’t really like

being indoors,’’ he says.

‘‘So, when the opportunitycameuptodo

one day aweek of work experience, I

signedupwith harness­racing trainer

Benny Hill.

‘‘I knewnothing about horses; they were

just big and abit scary, but they werea

chancetoget out of the schoolroom. That

was about four years ago.’’

Since then, Benny and his staffhave

taughtKorbyn everything he needed to

start as adriver, he says.

‘‘I justlove it. Iwas afterachallenge,

and that’s what Igot. Ibeganhelping out

aroundthe place, and then got moved up

to working horses,’’hesays.

‘‘I’d been there afew months beforeIgot

into asulky, and then that feelingof

driving kickedin. It’s bloodygood fun!’’

He is now in his second season in the

sulky.These days,hegets two to four

needs to, to fit in withtrainers who need

District Council’s long­term interest in

bring urban settlement alongside the

existing tourism platform.

‘‘It should be world­leading, best

practice.”

Garry is entirely self­funding the

initiative and has the support of the

financially challenged Kaikoura council,

whichislooking at innovative approaches

to revitalisethe town.

The councilisstreamlining processes

to help solve the region’s housing crisis,

triggered by the 2016earthquakeand the

globalfinancial crisis, among other

factors.

Mayor Craig Mackle says the initiative

is “pretty bloodyawesome”.Hebelieves

the project will be agood thingfor

Kaikoura.

‘‘It’s green, innovative and everything

you could ask for.”

He says that Garryisnot asking for

anything more than supportfrom the

happy to say that it is behind him.

Garry believes the development is a

first in New Zealand,whereacouncil is

leading the waybyagreeing to work

openly and transparently, sharing

resources and technology with him to

explorethe use of sustainable initiatives.

The ultimate goal is to be the first town

in the world running entirely off the grid,

and Garry says that believing in this endgoal,and

havingthe council’s support,

puts him well overhalf way to achieving

it.

The 130­hectare Ocean Ridge

subdivision is already fully zoned and

consented.About70traditional lots have

beensold or are already built on.

By the time the remaining300 or so lots

are developed, includingthe commercial

and retail areas, Ocean Ridge will

account for around aquarter of

Kaikoura’srating base in terms of

revenue.

Withering end to summer

FarmersinNorthCanterbury have plenty

of drought experience and can take credit

for beinginreasonableshapeasdry

HurunuiAdverse Events committee,

Winton Dalley, says.

Mr Dalleywas commenting as weeksof

hot and dry weather, bringing high levels

of evapotranspiration, affect the region.

He saysifanything was learnt from the

2014­2017 droughts,itwas the need to

make decisionsearlyonwhat farmers

could control.

‘‘It’s good practice to have plans and

deadlinesinplace to destock, send stock

out to graze,and buy in supplementswhile

they are available at an affordableprice,’’

he says.

The committee is monitoringhow

farmersare coping in the dry conditions,

and remindsthem of the wealthof

experience and information available to

help them throughthe dry spell.

‘‘Seeking advice and support from your

rural professionalsisawisemove,

whetheritisfinancial, stock health, stock

disposal or advising on supplementary

feed and green feed crops.

‘‘They haveawealthofknowledge to

assist your decision­making.

‘‘Remember, too, looking out foryour

neighbour is of paramountimportance.’’

On top of normal demandfor freezing

worksspace, in otherparts of the country

thereare reportsoflongerdelays due to

the coronavirus slowing exportdemand.

‘‘So bookinginearly is amust.’’

Mr Dalley saysthere was goodspring

growth and generally agood production

season, becoming dry as normal from

December on.

‘‘While we usually expectthe autumn

rainstokick in from next month and set us

up for winter, we will be in an

uncomfortable position if the rains don’t

come this year, andfarmers needto

prepare for that eventuality.’’

RuralSupport Trust chairman Andy

Munrosays the trust has not yet received

any requests for help.

‘‘Butwehave been madeawarethat

morale was slipping in certainareas and

we are monitoring the situation regularly.

‘‘We would encourage farmerstocontact

us if they want afree and confidential chat

to one of our team,’’ Mr Munro says.

Cheviot has missed most of the rain

lately and some springs are drying up.

Cheviot­based Dan Maxwell, the meat

and wool chairman for North Canterbury

Federated Farmers, says farmers are

beingproactive and making decisions

regularly, as needed.

‘‘It’svitalthat farmers are decisiveover

the next monthifno substantial rain

arrives.Alwayshave adate set, and if it

doesn’t rain thenimplementtheir action

plan. A10K hit to the budget can soonturn

into a15K hit if conditions continueto

deteriorate.’’

Tony Finch, from DairyNZ,says

Kaikoura farmers are reporting similar

impacts from the dry weather, with

dryland farmers saying conditions are as

bad as they canremember. Even those

with the advantagesoflimited irrigation

are experiencing challenges to keep up

with livestock demands.

Farmers havebeen forcedtomake

systemchangestomanage. However,if

there is no rain by March they willneed to

considerdrying­off options.

Despite that, overall farmingspirits

price.

Sarah’s Meadow Streetgarden

got the final nod because it was

‘‘a lovelygardendesigned to

match the house,which is a

cottage with averanda’’,Joan

said. ‘‘It is planted with old roses

and is avery calmgarden. It is

not abig section, but it was all

KAIKŌURA VIEWS

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Praise for good work

Acoupleofweeksago Iattended the

Summer Wine meeting—the monthly

gathering of some of Kaikoura’soldest

community members.

Many had watched me grow up. Manyno

doubtwondered howIwouldturn out. I’m

sure if you had asked them (orme) where

Iwas headedwhenIwas young,no­one

wouldhave said I’d end up as mayor.

Beinginthis rolenow is daily proofthat,

with the forgiveness and support of the

Kaikouracommunity, anything is possible.

There’s alot of talk aboutthe council

beingoverstaffed. While it is truewehave

more staff than before the earthquake, in

my opinion it’salso true that, for now,we

need them. In the threeyears since the

earthquake, the council has secured about

$60 million of external funding.

That includes $37.5mfor our sewerage,

watersystemsand roads rebuild; around

$3m for community facilities, includingthe

memorial hall, pooland scout hall; $11m

for re­development of WakatuQuay; and,

pending approval through the annualplan

process, around $12m for anew bridge

over the Clarence River.

Staffhave also supported groupsto

Lack of common sense riles

Dear Editor,

As my lifeonthis planet winds down,

my sense of frustrations builds.

That frustrationisabout what could

have been,asI’ve bornewitnesstoa

country with so much promisefor future

generations becoming boggeddown in a

politically motivated bureaucratic

swampofendless committees and

talkfests.

I’m wondering about responsibility and

the lack of commonsensedecisions.

Within our remotegeographic border

we are so lucky. So how come we have

fallen so far off the perch of OECDworld

rankings over thepast 40 years?

Iwas part of arapidly developing

country for the first 40 years,while the

last 40 havebeen like beingonasinking

ship —withoutacaptain.

Whichbrings me back to water, the

shortage of whichisvirtually daily news,

and which seasonally has always been the

lot of this district since it was settled.

Just in my shortlifetime, the country’s

populationhas climbedfromaround1.5

million and is now approaching5million,

apply for their own funding, offeredfree

services to helpwith personal rebuilds or

wellbeing, processed morethan $100m of

building consents, dealt with triple the

volumeofinvoicesand billsaspre­quake,

and won national awards for both

communications and economic recovery.

Over the sameperiod, satisfaction with

council services hasincreased.

That is not to saywe’ll alwaysneed them

(and some finish later this year), or that

they always get everything right, but,touse

afarming phrase, youdon’t kick the

harvestersout of the paddock whenthe

hay is on the ground.

Just as people mayhave had (or still

have) doubts aboutmeasmayor,people

may have their doubts about our council.

Iwas voted in as mayor because my

community had seen me grow and change

and becauseIknew the council had ajob

to do and couldn’tlose its stride.

Ihave no doubt that as we review

council financesand services, we’ll find

ways to save money and reduceour staff

costs but,for now, I’m proud of the team,

Waipara

Waimakariri council needs

to examine its core activities

Dear Editor,

Iread with considerable disquiet

the Waimakariri District Council’s

intention to implement, at the behest

of the World Health Organisation, a

new Age Friendly Plan.

On the surface, the proposal to take

cognisance of age­related need into

district planning is laudable.

However, when one drills down

deeper, the downstream

consequences are disturbing.

Elsewhere, the council reports that

it has already approved two years of

funding for wages to employ asupport

person for this project.

One has only to study current

council staffing to assume that this

wage will lead to another permanent

paid position.

Madeleine Burdon is quoted as

saying that things are happening

organically already in the community.

Ipresume that what is happening

organically is outside the council

domain at the moment and that filling

in the gaps will become part of the

council employee’s job description.

I’m sure that Madeleine had the best

of intentions when she brought her

suggestion forward, but Ichallenge

the mayor and councillors to

undertake in­depth scrutiny of

proposals requiring allocation of

ratepayers funds.

Ihave no doubt the appointed

advisory group will produce very good

suggestions to inform the council

planning and, for me, that is as far as

this should go.

Our community does not need the

expense of aCabinet minister’s time,

nor the WHO, to be effective.

In the same publication, the council

is reported as saying that it hopes to

hold the annual rates increase to

4percent.

Idonot have to be amathematician

to calculate that an annual 4% rate

rise will lift my rates another

thousand dollars in eight years.

Isuggest that the council steps back

and takes along, hard look at its core

activities and show good faith to its

ratepayers by not adding communityled

activities into the council brief.

Yours,

Anne Barnes,

Rangiora

Safety works needed

Dear Editor,

RegardingDavidJones’s letterinlast

week’s edition of the North Canterbury

News,Icouldn’t agree more that State

Highway 1upgrades are needed now

more thanever, withdaily vehicle

movements throughthe Woodendarea

expectedtoreach20,000 this year.

This is somethingIhavecalled for and

it’s why Ihavehighlighted the safety

improvements on SH1, betweenKaiapoi

and the Ashley Bridge, as amatter of

urgency in my community email

campaign to Transport Minister Phil

Twyford. Residents who feel thesame

way can send an email to the Transport

Minister directly through my website

campaign by going online to

MP for Waimakariri

Abuse from dog walkers

Dear Editor,

Iamconcerned about thesafetyof

bicycle riders and walkers on the

Rakahuri Track.

Recently,asIwas riding alongthe

track, Ihad to toleratethe abuse of

people walking theirdogs on the

mountainbike track.

Ialways slowdown and let people

know that Iamthere,asmore often than

not they also have dogs off­lead with

them and Idon’t want to get knocked off

my bike by adog runningout in frontof

me.

Iunderstand thatparts of the track

are sharedwith walkers and there are

also parts designated for

mountainbikes.

Thereare dog parksinRangiora,

as wellasdesignated walking

tracks whichpeoplecould be using

instead of the bike trackstowalk their

dogs.

It is 50 percent their responsibilityto

keep themselves safe on abiking track.

The North CanterburyCycle Clubhas

put time,effortand money to makethese

tracks happen for cyclists.

We don’t bike in their dog parks ...

Yours,

Natasha Richardson

Climate change

challenges ahead

By ROY MYERS

Resilient Hurunui, agroup looking at

positive responses to climatic and

environmental change and challenges,

hosted Dr Anita Wreford from Lincoln

University's’ Agribusiness Research

Unit last Thursday in Amberley.

Around 50 peopleturnedout to the

discussion, the first in amonthly series

planned by the group.

Hurunui MayorMarie Black, several

councillors,Environment

Canterbury councillor

GrantEdge, and people

from both theHurunui

and Waimakariri districts

attended.

Dr Wreford is the lead

author on the Intergovernmental

Panel on

Climate Change (IPCC)

Special Report and the

AustralasiaChapter of the

6th IPCC Assessment

Report. She is also part of

ateam conducting the

New Zealand climaterisk

assessment.

She spoke about theprocesses of the

IPCC,aninternationalbody of scientists

whichproduces regularreportson

climate change. It can be commissioned

by governmentstoproduce reports

around particular subjects.

She focused on arecent reportfrom

the IPCC on climatechange and the

land.She says landisanessential part

of the solution to adapting to climate

change, its systemsand structure

affecting both food and water supply.

It was wherewelived and supported

Dr Anita Wreford

the ecosystemsonwhich life depended.

Dr Wrefordsaid the challenge was

adapting to the impacts of climate

change, with land under increasing

human pressure. But the landcould not

do it all,she said.

She said New Zealand was uniquein

havingahigh levelofagricultural

emissions comparedtothe rest of the

world —48percent.Ireland was closest

with 38%, with the average about 10%.

New Zealandwas therefore being

watched as an example

for dealing with

emissions from

agriculture.

She said there was a

goodbody of research

now available in New

Zealand, but therewere

challenges in planning

for uncertain future

paths, withresearchers

now modellingvarious

approaches so that

efforts hadthe best

outcomes for both the

environmentand

farmers.

Quoting acolleague, Dr Andy

Reisinger, Dr Wreford saidthere

neededtobeincentives, tools and rules

because things don’t happen by

themselves. Change needs policies.

Hurunui Facebookpage. Resilient

Pounamu sculpture

returned to plinth

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Aprecious pounamu artwork stolen

from its plinth at the Hanmer Springs

Thermal Pools and Spa grounds has

finally come home.

The water­droplet sculpture was

stolen early in the year by an offender

caught on the complex’s security

cameras.

The piece, which stands about 50

centimetres high, was carved in 2017

by Ngai Tahu master carver Fayne

Robinson, along with his nephew

Caleb Robinson. It was hewn from one

of the largest greenstone boulders

ever found in the South Island. It

symbolises the pool’s famous thermal

waters.

Following abig effort, the pounamu

was recovered five days later, on

January 15, by Canterbury Police at a

Christchurch property.

The pounamu was then returned to

Ngai Tahu’s Christchurch

headquarters and blessed.

Mr Robinson polished the pounamu

and readied it for its return to Hanmer

Springs.

On Monday morning the pounamu

was returned to its plinth.

He said he was surprised it came

home.

‘‘I certainly did think it was gone for

good. My immediate thought was,

‘well, they can’t sell it as asculpture,

but they can cut it up and sell it in

pieces’.

‘‘To get it back in five days, it was a

very quick response and shows the

system works.

‘‘Now that it’s home, Ithink it will be

there for along time.’’

Pools general manager Graeme

Abbot said: ‘‘We were devastated

when it was stolen.

‘‘It means agreat deal to us at the

complex, given its acknowledgement

of, and ties to, our rich history and the

fact Ngai Tahu used to stop and bathe

in the springs as they travelled across

the South Island.’’

Mr Abbot said the outpouring of

support from the community had been

overwhelming, following news of the

theft.

‘‘I would like to say ahuge thank­you

to all those who showed us support

and especially the police in finding

this precious taonga.’’

Brothers harness up for new venture

By SHELLEY TOPP

Rangiora’sDawe Contracting

was aleading purchaser at New

Zealand Bloodstock

Standardbred’s recentNew

Zealand National Standardbred

Yearling Sale, spending $227,000

to buy five filliesand acolt.

Dawe Contracting is owned by

brothers Ronand Kevin Dawe

and their father Ray,who is now

retired.

The brothers are establishing a

new trainingestablishment on50

hectares of land formerly owned

by saddler Don Clarke at

Fernside, with Phil Burrows as

theirprivate trainer.

The yearlings are already

beingbrokeninand willform the

starting point for the stable’s new

racing team.

Phil previously trained for Ron

for manyyears from aproperty in

McIntosh’s Rd in Fernside,

before retiring from public

traininginAprillast year to work

for Robert andJohn Dunn at

theirWoodendBeach stable.

Whilethere, he continued to

trainacoupleofhorses for Ron.

Ron’sMcIntosh’s Rd property

has now been sold and he is

concentratingondeveloping the

new trainingestablishment at

125 MertonRd, which will have

new stables and a900m training

track. It is only 1.2kmfrom

Rangiora Raceway.

Phil willbegin training at the

new property when the

redevelopment is completed at

the end of April.

GavinSmith, who has driven

many winners for Ron andPhil

over the years, and has recently

become aDawe Contractingsponsoreddriver,will

be the

preferred driverfor the new

stable’shorses.

DaweContracting also

sponsors the mobilebarrierat

the Rangiora HarnessRacing

Club’s meetings and arace at the

Amberley Trotting Club’sannual

WaitangiDay meeting.

DaweContracting’s$227,000

sales outlayand the new training

property represent abig

investment,and is avote of

confidenceinharness racingin

North Canterbury, but Ron says it

is more about his loveofharness

racing.

‘‘I enjoy going to the races,

having agoodday out,winning a

racenow and again, and meeting

lovely people.It’s agood hobby.’’

He has bred,owned and raced

harness horses for about 10

years, and has had alot of fun in

thattime.

There havebeen many

winners, including the hugely

talentedMach’s Gladiator, who

won 12 races and more than

$100,000 in stake money,and

morerecentlyhis half­sister,

WildExcuse, a4­year­old mare

thatPhil has trainedtofive race

victoriesand two secondsfrom

only11starts to date.

Three of Dawe Contracting’s

sales fillies were purchased on

the first day of the sale, at

Karaka, in South Auckland, on

February17, with the othertwo

fillies and the coltpurchased at

the Sale of Pacers on the second

day at Christchurch on

Wednesday last week.

Ron decided to concentrate on

buying fillies for the new racing

team because ‘‘Phil has such a

good record with fillies’’.

‘‘He is good with colts, too,and

we might concentrateonbuying

them at next year’s sale,’’hesays.

Of the six yearlings bought by

Dawe Contracting at thesale,

four are by champion stallion

Bettor’s Delight. The three fillies

from Karaka,EburyStreet,

Devotion Delight, and Divine

Delight, are all daughters of

Bettor’s Delight,whilethe colt,

from Christchurch, Walls For

Clues,isason of Bettor’s Delight.

purchased at Christchurch,

Captaintreacherous, whose son,

Im Cushty, topped the Karaka

sale, selling for$250,000to

Australians Emilio and Mary

Rosati, and the other filly,

Heavenly Perfection, is by Rock

NRoll Heaven,whoseprogeny

was also in demand at the sale.

What’s changing?

In response to regulatory changes, MainPower is adjustingthe balance between ‘fixed’ and‘variable’

lines charges.Your electricity bill is madeupofseveral components,one ofwhichisthe cost of

deliveringelectricitytoyour property viaMainPower’s network, aprocess knownasdistribution.

The distribution cost accounts foraround 27%ofyourtotalelectricitybilland is madeupofa

combinationoffixedand variablecosts. MainPower’sdistribution charges need to betterreflect the

actual cost of delivering electricitytocustomers. As MainPower’s costs are largelyfixedand not

relatedtothe quantity of electricity consumed (e.g. our ongoingmaintenance programme, costsof

transmissionpassed on fromTranspower), MainPower is adjusting the balancebetween the fixed

and variable components.Effectively,from 1April2020,the fixed portionwillform alarger portion of

your distributioncharge.

Whatabout therebate?

From 1April 2020,the monthlyrebate paid to Qualifying Customerswillbeappliedasapercentage

thatyou receive from yourretailer (though someretailerschoosenot to showthis discount on their

invoices). Once acustomer is connectedtothe MainPower network,theyare aQualifying Customer.

Customersconnected to the former Kaiapoi Electricity network will have adiscountappliedtotheir

Couple at helm for show

By DAVID HILL

Community stalwarts Mike

and Elspeth Loughnan have

stepped up to lead this year’s

Mt Beautiful Cheviot A&P

Show.

The couple, who only

joined the committee after

last year’s show, are taking on

the roles of co­presidents

after years of service to the

wider community in avariety

of roles.

‘‘We are very much

newbies. I’ve avoided it for a

long time, while doing other

things in the community,’’

Mike says. ‘‘But we have two

new vice­presidents and

everyone’s new, but we’ve got

good support and there’s a

number of past presidents

still involved.’’

They are also thankful for

strong backing from the show

committee in bringing the

event to life.

The Loughnans might be

new to the committee, but

they are familiar faces in

Cheviot.

Mike was arugby coach for

23 years for the Glenmark

and Cheviot clubs and the

combined club, winning the

Canterbury Country

combined and North

Canterbury competitions. He

is aformer North Canterbury

rep coach.

The couple’s sons, Tim and

Hugh, continue to play for the

Glenmark­Cheviot second

division team.

Elspeth has been ateacher

at Cheviot Area School for

more than 20 years, teaching

primary school classes.

They run a320­hectare

sheep and beef farm at Blythe

Valley, south of the Hurunui

River mouth in partnership

with eldest son Tim and his

partner, Jaymie, who works

at Misco Joinery in Kaiapoi.

Tim is the fifth generation

on the farm, dating back to

Elspeth’s great­grandfather,

Community stalwarts ... Mike and Elspeth Loughnan are co­presidents of the Cheviot A&P Show.

T.H. Wilkinson, who was one

of the first ballot­holders.

The farming operation has

changed in recent years, with

around 2500 stock units,

mainly trading sheep and

cattle. It has been blended

with tourism, including

‘‘glamping’’, jet­boat trips

and farm tours. ‘‘It keeps us

busy and it’s away of

diversifying,’’ Mike says.

This season has been a

tough one with the dry

conditions, he says.

Gates opened to promote hemp

By KATIE TODD

AChristchurch grower of industrial

hemp says red tape is stopping

industries from making the most of what

many regard as apotential wonder crop.

Although it lacks the mind­altering

power of its close cousin marijuana,

hemp can only be grown and sold subject

to Ministry of Health restrictions.

Brad Lake, co­founder of

Christchurch hemp food company, The

Brothers Green, helped organise ahemp

farm open day in Culverden on Sunday

to showcase the farmers and businesses

utilising the crop. In doing so, he hoped

to de­mystify how it is grown and used.

About 100 Christchurch residents

were bused in to see the crop, which is

about aweek away from being

harvested.

It will be taken down the road to one of

the South Island’s first hemp processing

plants.

Soil consultant Rob Flynn told guests

that hemp farmers were already

benefiting hugely from the versatility

and popularity of the crop.

‘‘To me, hemp is just such auniversal

plant. It has got so many properties and

ecologically we’ve got to get away from

the plastic and that’s what it sort of

provides,’’ he said.

Some of the end products it goes into

were on show, from hemp bars and

protein powders to shampoos and

balms.

Builder Antonie Fitzgerald spoke

about using ‘‘hempcrete’’ as a

sustainable, durable, fire­resistant

alternative to concrete, and creative

director of the clothing brand Original

Canvas, Eden Sloss, spoke about

spinning hemp into breathable clothes.

But Mr Lake said hemp hadn’t quite

escaped its past as amember of the

cannabis family, and that made life

more difficult for growers and retailers.

Under current rules, farmers need

annual licences to grow hemp, and must

follow strict rules about where it can be

grown, security on the farm, recording

the progress of the crop, and reporting

missing or failed crops.

Mr Lake said it would make more

sense for the Ministry for Primary

Industries to recognise hemp as an

agricultural crop by taking on the

licensing process and ideally, there

wouldn’t be any restrictions at all.

‘‘If we can go to farmers and say we

can buy your leaf and flower, your fibre,

your root and your seed, we can offer

them avery competitive return and have

ahuge diversity of income for farmers

without any of the restrictions in place,

that really do hinder not just the returns

to farmers but also the output of the

plant.’’

Guests at the event said they were

optimistic that hemp is slowly beginning

to shed its hippy stereotype, and prove

its worth in agriculture and other

industries.

Student Liam O’Brien said he was

interested in the opportunities hemp

could deliver in his field of study —

sustainability and landscape

architecture.

‘‘At 24 years of age, Ibelieve hemp has

areally big place in New Zealand.

‘‘Through agriculture, tourism,

through everything ...it really ticks all

the boxes,’’ he said.

Mr Lake said he was thrilled so many

people took the chance to learn more

about hemp by boarding the bus to

Culverden.

He hoped more people would

continue to open up to the idea of just

how versatile the plant is.

and catch up on the local news, and the children can attend adelightful and popular local school, known for its community

involvement.

This property was refurbished throughout in the last few years and is larger than it looks. It sports four bedrooms, plus an

The outside has been laid out to cater for this family’s needs and has aplay area for children while at the back of the property

are some good woodsheds andachickencoop. All of this could be developed further to suit yourown needs.

The garage is best described as asingle but there is adouble carport infront, and many would use the garage area for tools

and perhaps abit of a‘man shed’. Unusual layout but quite practical.

Amazing Lifestyle awaits in Stunning Location

157 Church Road, Waipara

Absolutely delightful, elegant character home in excellent order comes with a

proven history of income. The property provides an income stream without a

lot of physical input from the owners, which makes it perfect for buyers who

seek to kick back and enjoy life and the views in one of the most desirable

areas in New Zealand.

The spacious four-bedroom home has many of the character features of a

home of this era that you would expect, including ahigh stud, wrap around

verandah, formal lounge, country style kitchen that flows to informal living

and then outside to sheltered entertaining areas. Twobathrooms and two

toilets, separate laundry,good storage. Heating and cooling are well catered

for, with two heat pumps, agas fire, alog burner and aceiling fan. Separate

extra-large double garage that would allow for aseparate workshop. Aleanto

provides cover for firewood and storage of bikes and mowers.

The gardens complement the house with adistinct touch of class. There are

areas to escape the wind and the heat while still being reasonably close to

the house.

There is 6.88 hectares of land, most of which is planted in Pinot Noir and

Chardonnay. There are three waters sources so that dry spells can be dealt

with. Afrost fan is strategically placed to deal with an untimely frost. The vines

themselves are grafted root-stock and are well established. The vineyard has

been meticulously cared for over the years and is presented in excellent order.

This gem of aproperty comes with two sources of revenue. Aseparate self

contained cottage brings in atidy weekly rent, but it has been avery good

earner as aB&B. That activity could easily be resurrected as there is very

good demand in this location being near the tourist route and enjoying the

ambience of avineyard. The vineyard consistently produces high quality

grapes from renowned terroir and there is high demand for the fruit.

The present owners are able to generate areturn from the vineyard without a

great deal of input themselves, by using contractors for the work.

After more than 20 years of happy times and memories, it is time for the

present owners to move on from their pride and joy, and they offer it for

sale in the knowledge and satisfaction that they have created asuperb rural

masterpiece for anew owner to appreciate and cherish.

This is your chance to receive the baton and put your stamp on one of the

best to become available in the highly regarded Waipara Golden Mile.
