It is exciting to announce that we are now officially an Incorporated Society. We have been talking about it for years.

We are missing Derek, but he is having a great time on his trip.

Scattered some Karaka seeds on the mini slop and hope for the best. The growth in that area has been pretty good. The Whau is really spreading. Such a reward to see it actually happening.

The weather has been a bit of a challenge as we had the spinoff from the two cyclones and the amount of water that must have rushed down the valley was intense. This makes the water meadow area near the stream nearly impossibe to navigate. However Martin hopped over the stream, Pat fell in,  to rescue some fairly new plantings from smothering in morning glory vines.

Then we found a HUGE moth plant up the top by the soccer field that was smothering one of the trees by the old Macrocarpa. We pulled seed pods that have filled 5 large bags. Will have to finish it next week as it rained today and Martin was rostered on for trapping.

Sel has been helping us as he can and we are so grateful for his help.
