Navigating the Future

Written by Ray Songtree and published on EnergyBulletin. Ties in with my video presentation

We are calling a heads up reality check for all tourist-based businesses here in Motueka and throughout the region. We will see discretionary spending dry up, and a domino effect as we all tighten our belts and spend less. All retail businesses except those supplying basic necessities will be affected. » Read more

Roadside Spraying Relief

Are you aware of roadside spraying outside your property?? It happens in Motueka town, too.  The TDC has application forms available to fill in if you want to look after your boundary yourself - the fewer chemicals the better.  The more people who fill in applications, the more they may think about what they are doing. In Linden Place, there are at least 6 residents with "no spray" status now.
