 Fruit trees for Auckland - a community project to bring free fruit into our city

On Sunday the 29th of July 2012, we provided 520 fruit trees to local schools, early childhood centres and Transition Town groups. All 520 fruit trees from the 2012 project now have their roots down all over Auckland.  The 3 main aims with this project are to support families with lowering their grocery bills, encourage local food production, and teach children how to plant and care for fruit trees. We'd like to thank all the teachers, parents and volunteers for getting involved and sharing our vision of free and healthy food. » Read more

She warns that most people are woefully unprepared to face the consequences of the devastating deflation that is now unfolding. » Read more
