Largest-ever native planting<br />

project gets the go-ahead<br />

MORE THAN 100,000 native<br />

trees will be planted in the southwest<br />

as part of a network of<br />

new wetland areas in the upper<br />

catchment of the Ōpāwaho/<br />

Heathcote River.<br />

It will be the largest native<br />

planting project ever undertaken<br />

by the city council.<br />

The Eastman Wetland landscape<br />

plan was approved by the<br />

Waipuna Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board, with<br />

planting to take place over the<br />

next three years.<br />

“This project will<br />

return a vast area of<br />

native plants to the city,<br />

reduce the amount of<br />

sediment going into<br />

waterways and protect<br />

natural springs,” city<br />

council head of three<br />

waters Helen Beaumont<br />

said.<br />

“The wetlands act as<br />

a storage basin in heavy rainfall,<br />

reducing downstream flooding<br />

and improving waterway health.<br />

They’ll also provide a wonderful<br />

area for people to connect<br />

with nature and will create new<br />

habitat for native birds, fish and<br />

insects.”<br />

City council contractors have<br />

been developing the 100-hectare<br />

facility on former farmland<br />

between Cashmere and Sutherlands<br />

Rd and towards Hoon Hay<br />

Valley.<br />

The large ponds will capture<br />

and store excess stormwater and<br />

Helen<br />

Beaumont<br />

act as a natural filter before the<br />

water flows into the Cashmere<br />

Stream and on to the river.<br />

Both of these waterways have<br />

freshwater crayfish, freshwater<br />

mussels, whitebait and other<br />

native fish.<br />

“Now we have the landscape<br />

plan approval we can start to<br />

look at the planting programme.<br />

The council’s Harewood Nursery<br />

has been working with suppliers<br />

for the past two years as a<br />

programme of this scale requires<br />

a lot of preparation,” Beaumont<br />

said.<br />

The plan provides for<br />

30,000 to 35,000 tall trees<br />

that will grow up to 12m<br />

high, 70,000 to 75,000 small<br />

trees and shrubs growing<br />

up to 5m high, and between<br />

600,000 and 650,000 plants.<br />

Large areas of rongoā<br />

garden will be developed<br />

to provide a sustainable<br />

place to collect plants for use<br />

in traditional Māori medicine.<br />

Walking and cycling tracks are<br />

included as part of the<br />

landscape plan, along with<br />

a car park.<br />

Provision has also been made<br />

for a cycling pump track to be<br />

included. City council staff will<br />

be working with Cashmere<br />

High School students to help<br />

them design and build the track.<br />

“We hope this project will<br />

positively benefit people of all<br />

ages and from right across the<br />

city,” said Beaumont.<br />

LARGE SCALE: The Eastman Wetland landscape plan has been approved, with planting<br />

more than 100,000 native trees in the south-west to take place over the next three years.<br />

WE ALL seem to be behaving<br />

ourselves this holidays.<br />

That is the report card of the<br />

Christchurch North Community<br />

Patrol, with chairman Sam Hall<br />

describing the summertime situation<br />

as “pretty<br />

good.”<br />

Park and<br />

picnic areas<br />

have been on<br />

the patrol radar,<br />

standard for this<br />

time of year.<br />

“We haven’t<br />

actua ly had to<br />

report anything<br />

from the picnic areas around,”<br />

Hall said.<br />

“It was a l very family-orientated,<br />

so it’s been quite good.”<br />

More family groups than usual<br />

seemed to be out, possibly because<br />

the Covid-19 pandemic was preventing<br />

people from leaving town<br />

for a holiday, he said.<br />

Being a frequent presence<br />

was also helpful in deterring<br />

incidents.<br />

December and January were<br />

also the time of year the patrol<br />

focused on monitoring schools,<br />

but no issues had arisen there<br />

either.<br />

Another summertime staple<br />

was fire danger patrol.<br />

No decision<br />

yet to<br />

appeal<br />

declining of<br />

rehabilitation<br />

facility<br />

• By Fiona E lis<br />

THE DEPARTMENT of<br />

Corrections has until February 9<br />

to appeal after permission to build<br />

a contentious rehabilitation centre<br />

for violent offenders in St Albans<br />

was declined.<br />

However, it is remaining tightlipped<br />

on whether or not it is likely<br />

to do so.<br />

Last week the Bristol Street<br />

Resource Consent Hearing panel<br />

declined to grant resource consent<br />

for the Bristol St facility, following<br />

a hearing in November.<br />

The proposal would have seen<br />

up to 12 men serving sentences<br />

of home detention at 14 Bristol St<br />

while participating in a violenceprevention<br />

programme. Men<br />

with significant untreated mental<br />

health issues would not be eligible<br />

to participate in the programme.<br />

In their decision, city council<br />

appointed commissioners Anthony<br />

Hughes-Johnson QC and Ken<br />

Lawn said they were not satisfied<br />

the site was appropriate for such a<br />

facility.<br />

Corrections acting regional<br />

commissioner Chris O’Brien-<br />

Smith did not answer Nor’West<br />

New’s question on whether an<br />

appeal would be made, but said<br />

corrections would spend the<br />

next few weeks reflecting on the<br />

commissioners’ findings.<br />

Community gardens grow in popularity<br />

• By Anna Sargent<br />

GREEN THUMBS: Catherine O’Neill (left) and Lin Klenner<br />

volunteer numbers have ‘skyrocketed’.<br />

PHOTO: ANNA SARGENT<br />

PEOPLE ARE flocking to<br />

Christchurch community<br />

gardens to save money and boost<br />

mental health.<br />

Saving money was a significant<br />

reason why people wanted to<br />

learn how to grow vegetables at<br />

Richmond Community Garden,<br />

chairperson Hayley Guglietta<br />

said.<br />

“I think it’s essential for society<br />

to learn how to grow from a<br />

seed.”<br />

New Brighton Community<br />

Garden manager Catherine<br />

O’Neill said visitor and volunteer<br />

numbers have “skyrocketed”<br />

since the beginning of Covid<br />

lockdowns.<br />

The garden has about 17 volunteers<br />

and 13 visitors each day<br />

it is open. Funding and administration<br />

manager Lin Klenner<br />

said this was “easily double” the<br />

number of people from two years<br />

ago.<br />

Klenner attributed this increased<br />

interest in gardening and<br />

vegetable growing to people having<br />

been stuck at home during<br />

lockdowns from 2020.<br />

“The problem is a lot of people<br />

didn’t have the skills, so when<br />

lockdown was over people came<br />

to community gardens to learn<br />

more.”<br />

O’Neill said being able to<br />

grow your own vegetables was<br />

“empowering”, as people became<br />

more self-sufficient and less reliant<br />

on outside sources for fresh<br />

produce.<br />

Volunteers at New Brighton<br />

Community Garden can take<br />

home vegetables and seedlings<br />

after they have worked for two<br />

hours.<br />

Regular volunteer Tony has<br />

helped at the garden for three<br />

years. He said he appreciates the<br />

vegetables he gets to take home,<br />

and the skills he has learned in<br />

growing different plants.<br />

Tony volunteers all year<br />

around and enjoys “seeing the<br />

four seasons” being reflected in<br />

the garden.<br />

Christchurch South Community<br />

Gardens Trust manager<br />

Christine Blance also reported<br />

an increased interest from people<br />

wanting to learn vegetablegrowing<br />

skills.<br />

“There is a satisfaction and<br />

pleasure in creating something<br />

yourself and sharing the crops<br />

with people,” she said.<br />

Both Christchurch South<br />

Community Garden and<br />

Richmond Community Garden<br />

PRODUCE: Volunteers at the garden can take home some<br />

of the fresh vegetables harvested.<br />

have reported an increase in<br />

volunteers over the last two<br />

years.<br />

O’Neill said the mental health<br />

benefits of gardening were well<br />

known.<br />

“They’ve done studies on<br />

wellbeing and one big thing is<br />

getting your hands in the soil,<br />

to get good feelings into your<br />

brain.”<br />

A literature review by UK<br />

organisations Garden Organic<br />

and Sustain said gardening<br />

and community food growing<br />

improved mental and physical<br />

health. It claimed gardening can<br />

reduce stress and depression, and<br />

improve people’s health because<br />

they are eating more fruit and<br />

vegetables.<br />

The social connection aspect<br />

of community gardens can also<br />

boost mental health. Tony said<br />

his mood always improved after<br />

spending time at the garden.<br />

High food prices are also<br />

driving people to grow their own<br />

vegetables.<br />

Fruit and vegetable prices at<br />

supermarkets have jumped 17 per<br />

cent over the last year, according<br />

to Stats NZ. The biggest increases<br />

were the cost of tomatoes, broccoli<br />

and iceberg lettuces.<br />

Klenner said rising prices<br />

made it more attractive for<br />

volunteers to come to the<br />

community garden, to be able to<br />

take home some vegetables and<br />

learn growing skills they can use<br />

in their own gardens.<br />

Saving the planet with skateboards<br />

• By Emily Moorhouse<br />

A 15-YEAR-OLD plans<br />

to educate people on the<br />

importance of recycling through<br />

his skateboard business.<br />

Neith Absalom has found a<br />

way to reuse plastic bottle tops<br />

by melting them down to make<br />

skateboard decks.<br />

Neith is a student at special<br />

character school Ao Tawhiti in<br />

the central city and got the idea<br />

to make skateboards during a<br />

self-directed learning session.<br />

Neith decided he wanted to<br />

take up rowing, but needed<br />

funds to cover the cost of the<br />

sport, inspiring him to start a<br />

business that worked towards<br />

eco-friendliness at the same<br />

time.<br />

After some researching, Neith<br />

learned that number two plastic<br />

(high-density polyethylene),<br />

made out of plastic bottle tops<br />

often isn’t recycled.<br />

“It’s really easy to melt safely. I<br />

had a thing with skateboards because<br />

I really love skateboarding<br />

so it turned into art pieces and<br />

skateboards,” Neith said.<br />

“The current crisis that we’re<br />

in now is people kind of saying<br />

it’s going to be alright and really<br />

it’s not, and my whole thing is to<br />

open people’s eyes up to the stuff<br />

that we’re not recycling which is<br />

quite easily recycled.”<br />

Neith uses just over 1000 bottle<br />

tops to make a board, shredding<br />

the plastic before melting it<br />

down at 120-150 deg C in a metal<br />

frame using a “bake oven.”<br />

Neith made his first board<br />

last year with an old heat plate<br />

he found on Trade Me, using a<br />

wooden frame, but this burnt so<br />

he switched to a metal frame that<br />

his friend Monty shaped for him<br />

in their school’s tech room.<br />

‘As long as it’s not thrown<br />

back into the rubbish I’m<br />

happy’<br />

– Neith Absalom<br />

Now, he uses what he calls a<br />

bake oven, but said it’s really just<br />

an old barbecue.<br />

It takes about one and a half to<br />

two hours to fully melt the bottle<br />

tops down, applying pressure<br />

with a non-stick sheet.<br />

Neith then takes the board to<br />

the school’s tech room to smooth<br />

out the edges and put holes in<br />

it where the wheels would be<br />

MELT: Absalom shreds the<br />

bottle tops in a shredder<br />

before melting them down<br />

into a steel mold in an old<br />

barbecue.<br />

attached.<br />

A problem Neith ran into during<br />

the process was the lack of<br />

grip on the board, which didn’t<br />

matter if the board was put on<br />

display as art, like the ones he<br />

has in his school’s cafe and New<br />

Brighton’s Pier People art gallery.<br />

However, if they were being<br />

used practically, they needed to<br />

have more grip on the surface,<br />

so his mother Natalie suggested<br />

getting old coffee sacks that cafes<br />

throw away and pressing them<br />

into the board.<br />

This would not only create a<br />

cool pattern but gives the surface<br />

of the board a much better grip,<br />

Neith said.<br />

He said his mother has often<br />

chipped in to help with his<br />

business and is very supportive<br />

of him as well as his learning<br />

adviser (teacher) Ian Hayes.<br />

“He’s real good to me and helping<br />

me get on the right track and<br />

believes that I can do it and nothing’s<br />

going to get in my way.”<br />

Now that Neith has figured out<br />

the right process to making the<br />

boards, he plans to start selling<br />

them and working on getting his<br />

brand out there.<br />

He sells the boards for $120<br />

board Neith Absalom<br />

designed for the Pier<br />

People art gallery in New<br />

Brighton and (above) the<br />

one that sits on display in<br />

Ao Tawhiti’s cafe.<br />

each and said the money he<br />

makes will go straight back into<br />

the business for now before he<br />

can start making a profit.<br />

When asked if he was going to<br />

take up rowing soon he said he<br />

wasn’t sure anymore.<br />

“I’ve kind of made this really<br />

good eco business that I kind of<br />

maybe want to carry on forever,”<br />

he laughed.<br />

When people ask Neith if the<br />

boards are strong enough he says<br />

they seem to be stronger than the<br />

wooden ones you get from places<br />

like The Warehouse.<br />

“As long as you know how to<br />

put a skateboard together then<br />

you’re sweet,” he said.<br />

‘As long as it’s not thrown back<br />

into the rubbish I’m happy’<br />

• From page 5<br />

Neith, of Greta Valley, sources<br />

the bottle tops from cafes around<br />

the city and a retirement village<br />

in Amberley, as well as the<br />

Halswell Community Hub.<br />

He’s even received a load of<br />

bottle tops from someone in<br />

Waikato who had come across<br />

his Facebook page, which he said<br />

was pretty cool.<br />

When he leaves school, Neith<br />

wants to be a chiropractor or<br />

physiotherapist, as he likes<br />

helping people but doesn’t like<br />

blood.<br />

He has future plans to make<br />

longboard decks and include<br />

wheels on them as a step up from<br />

the smaller boards he’s making<br />

without wheels.<br />

He said he doesn’t mind what<br />

people do with the skateboards,<br />

whether they use them practically<br />

or hang them up on display.<br />

“That’s cool with me as long<br />

as it’s loved, as long as it’s not<br />

thrown back into the rubbish I’m<br />

happy,” he said.<br />

To have a look at Neith’s work<br />

go to ‘Over The Top Recycling’<br />

on Facebook.<br />

Metal dog tags to replace<br />

annual plastic ones<br />

METAL TAGS to last your<br />

dog’s lifetime will be rolled<br />

out as part of this year’s dog<br />

registration renewal period.<br />

The city council’s new<br />

rectangular dog tags will<br />

have a unique identification<br />

number on them and will<br />

replace the plastic, coloured<br />

discs, which were thrown out<br />

and replaced every year.<br />

“There are more than 40,000<br />

dogs registered in Christchurch<br />

so the new metal tags are<br />

the sustainable, future-proofed<br />

option with at least 40,000<br />

plastic tags not going into the<br />

red bin every year,” animal<br />

services manager Lionel<br />

Bridger said.<br />

“At the moment people<br />

have to pay their registration<br />

and then wait for their new<br />

tags to arrive in the mail<br />

so having lifelong tags will<br />

speed up the registration<br />

process.”<br />

The new system will mean<br />

the only thing dog owners<br />

need to do will be to pay their<br />

registration each year.<br />

The new dog tags will also<br />

have a QR code on them,<br />

generated by a company<br />

called Tag King. For $20,<br />

owners can use the QR code<br />

to store their contact information.<br />

Then if their dog<br />

ONE-OFF: The new metal tags will last a lifetime,<br />

replacing the plastic discs that were updated<br />

every year.<br />

PHOTO: NEWSLINE<br />

goes missing, anyone who<br />

finds the dog will be able to<br />

scan the QR code and find<br />

out who the owners are so<br />

they can be reunited.<br />

“We want to stress, this<br />

is an optional service and<br />

you have to opt into it, and<br />

is completely separate from<br />

your registration fees with<br />

us,” Bridger said.<br />

Reminder letters for this<br />

year’s dog registration are<br />

being sent out now.<br />

“So it’s a timely reminder<br />

that the period to pay your<br />

annual dog registration fees<br />

is coming up,” he said.<br />

If you have responsible<br />

dog owner status, you<br />

have until <strong>June</strong> 30 to pay<br />

at the discounted rate. If<br />

you’re paying the standard<br />

registration fee you have until<br />

July 31.<br />

You can pay online, over the<br />

phone using a credit card by<br />

calling 941 8999, or in person<br />

at one of the service centres.<br />

Dog registration fees pay<br />

for a wide range of dog<br />

control services, including<br />

dog bite prevention<br />

programmes, complaints<br />

investigation and resolution,<br />

care and welfare of<br />

impounded dogs, and free<br />

dog microchipping.<br />

Energy<br />

project to<br />

help 200<br />

households<br />

A PROJECT to help low and fixed<br />

income households reduce their<br />

energy bills will benefit from a<br />

$49,763 sustainability fund grant.<br />

The fund was set up by the city<br />

council to assist with community<br />

action on climate change.<br />

A proposal from Christchurch<br />

business Ecobulb will see the<br />

Home Energy Project pilot rolled<br />

out to help 200 low and fixed<br />

income households.<br />

The company will install LED<br />

bulbs and water-efficient shower<br />

heads, provide energy saving<br />

tips and support householders to<br />

select the best energy provider.<br />

The scheme aims to save almost<br />

700 tonnes of greenhouse gas<br />

emissions over 10 years through<br />

energy savings.<br />

The pilot project will also be<br />

used to gather information to<br />

support a funding application<br />

to the $17m energy hardship<br />

programme offered by the Ministry<br />

of Business, Innovation and<br />

Employment.<br />

“If Ecobulb is able to expand<br />

the programme it will potentially<br />

benefit about 20,000 Christchurch<br />

households,” said sustainability<br />

and community resilience<br />

committee chair, councillor<br />

Sara Templeton.<br />

Ngā mihi nui, welcome to <strong>June</strong> and<br />

welcome to my world. At a recent<br />

business planning session with<br />

our mentor Gilbert Enoka, this<br />

question was posed: “in this year<br />

of all years what have you learnt<br />

about yourself ?” And in the quieter<br />

moments I’ve had the chance to<br />

ponder just that.<br />

But before sharing those insights,<br />

I’d like to look at the real estate<br />

world collectively – and at some<br />

of the learnings readily available.<br />

It’s awards time, the financial year<br />

has been completed and, yes, you<br />

guessed it, it’s time to publish and<br />

share achievements. Open any<br />

publication or look to your social<br />

media and you’ll find numerous<br />

‘Top 20’ groups of consultants and<br />

proclamations of greatness being<br />

made across the city.<br />

It’s done in an attempt to win the<br />

hard-earnt trust – and, therefore, the<br />

real estate needs – of potential clients<br />

and it happens with every significant<br />

brand in the industry, not just the one<br />

featuring above our own doorway. It’s<br />

confusing, I know, often off-putting<br />

and, what’s more, I contribute to it!<br />

So, I’m offering my apologies whilst<br />

providing some rationale.<br />

You see, our team of 91 real estate<br />

consultants spread across four<br />

offices (soon to be five) are the real<br />

deal. Harcourts gold has the Top<br />

Residential Office in New Zealand<br />

and it’s an accolade that evokes<br />

a definite sense of pride knowing<br />

I’ve been able to contribute to that<br />

success. Our award-winning Papanui<br />

office is located in the area where my<br />

father and his family of seven grew up<br />

and where my husband and I went to<br />

high school. You see, I’ve learnt that<br />

I’m nostalgic and parochial when it<br />

comes to my local community – and<br />

those roots run deep.<br />

In addition to this office award, we<br />

have the Top Franchise award for<br />

income per sales consultant in New<br />

Zealand, Top Office for auctions,<br />

revenue and performance, plus three<br />

consultants in the New Zealand Top<br />

20 including Number One (out of<br />

2,318) – my great friend and business<br />

partner, Cameron Bailey.<br />

I’m providing these details not to<br />

come across as a tiresome bore<br />

but to demonstrate a number of<br />

determinants that indicate this team<br />

really is different. And it’s this I’ve<br />

learnt: no amount of success can<br />

happen without hard work. In this<br />

industry that can mean long hours,<br />

deep rejection, constant setbacks and<br />

market challenges. I’ve also learnt<br />

that this is offset by a supportive<br />

team that collaborates, encourages<br />

resilience and celebrates when the<br />

job is done.<br />

You then go forward, year after year,<br />

and in my own case, decade after<br />

decade. Anyone can be motivated<br />

for a minute, but it takes grit to be<br />

motivated for a lifetime – and I guess<br />

that’s my biggest learning of all.<br />

Public Notice<br />

Notice for consultation on a proposed Enrolment Scheme<br />

amendment for Cotswold School<br />

The Ministry of Education has identified that Cotswold School requires an<br />

amendment to their enrolment scheme. This is to remove a small section from the<br />

home zone area to clarify local education pathways and to clarify the home zone<br />

boundary so that the home zone map and written description more accurately<br />

represent which addresses are in-zone.<br />

After engagement with the Board, we have developed a proposed enrolment scheme<br />

amendment for Cotswold School under the Education and Training Act 2020.<br />

As part of this process, we are consulting with the school’s community and with<br />

people living in the area for which the school is a reasonably convenient school.<br />

Under this scheme, students will be able to enrol if they live within the proposed<br />

home zone. The enrolment of out-of-zone students is governed by the provisions of<br />

the Education and Training Act 2020.<br />

A copy of the proposed enrolment scheme is available at<br />

https://consultation.education.govt.nz/education/cotswold-school-enrolment-schemeamendment<br />

If you have any feedback about the proposed enrolment scheme, please visit the<br />

website, read the information and complete the survey before 08 July <strong>2022</strong>.<br />
