May I ask why we shouldn't use tea bags?

Save the plastic you do accrue. Clean, dry, stuff it in chip bags or similar and seal to make "pillows". Use as packaging when recycling fragile items via Trade Me etc. Now, what is more important to you - getting rid of "waste" to maintain your idealized home environment and avoid the social stigma of "hoarding", or taking responsibility for your "waste" and doing something constructive with it? You can't have it both ways.

Refill containers you already have from bulk refilleries e.g. bulk barn - bread yeast, flours, grains, cereals, oil, dish wash, cleaning products, hand wash etc, so you don't need to buy new containers. The containers don't need to be a standard size, but need to have the volume or weight on them, so the products can be charged.

Community planting day, Saturday July 4th,10am-4pm, Te Ngāwari buried marae, Whatatutu.

Join Ngā Ariki Kaiputahi in a Matariki planting day to celebrate the restoration work that was made possible by COVID-19 redeployment funding received via the Provincial Development Unit and administered by the Department of Conservation (DOC).

Planting day organiser and Mangatu Team Project Manager Matawhero Lloyd is excited to get this event underway. He says it is about ‘healing the land, healing the people,’ and that it also provides a safe process for whānau to engage with the restoration work.

Ample parking is available on the day but please car-pool if possible. Bring suitable footwear and clothing for the conditions and an appetite for a post planting hangi.

Timeline PhotosThe Garden Bird Survey kicks off tomorrow! How exciting!

It’s time to dig out your lucky bird-watching hat, pull on the woolly socks, grab a chair and a cuppa tea, and head into the garden to count birds. The survey is so easy to do!

Choose a day between 27 June and 5 July, when you have a free hour. Print off or download the tally sheet (by following the link below), head into your garden to look and listen for birds and record the number of bird species you observe. You can also do your survey in a park or school.

Once you're done, head back to the Garden Bird Survey website and submit your results there.

This is a great thing to do with your whānau, friends and tamariki and is an excellent activity out in nature, that benefits your well-being.

Join the fanclub!A bit quiet at the shed this week, but have been asked by the Tairawhiti Environment Centre to produce some seed boxes for their garden and small ones for kids to take home to start them on their own gardens. If anyone out there is a bit bored or wants to get out and have a chat and use their hands making something for the community, pop in and give us a hand. For those not that handy we have a first aid kit!

We are open 9.00 am to 12.00 Tuesday and 9.00 am to 2.00 Thurdays and Saturdays, love to see you.

If you are a local community facility and have a project that we can help, give us a call.

Katipo* spiders 😊

At TEC we are passionate about many things! Our main pillars of work revolve around waste minimization, education, conservation and biodiversity. The TEC hub serves as a collection point for non-kerbside recycling programmes, such as the Terracycle Nespresso coffee pods programme amongst many others. Even though we are passionate about recycling, we are also passionate to keep up the korero that 'recycling' sits way down in the waste hierarchy pyramid. Rethinking our consumer behaviours/ refusing to buy / reusing / repurposing all have less of an impact on our environment than recycling does. We all have to make choices: awareness is key.
We are also very passionate about our community, our staff and volunteers, so we urge anyone doing their bit by bringing in recycling to do so in as much as a collaborative way as possible: help us by making sure the sorting is done accurately, the correct items are deposited in the correct boxes and the coffee pods aren't wet ;). All Terracycle boxes take a road trip to either Napier, Tauranga or Auckland, so let us all make sure we are only sending out what's necessary. Keep up the good mahi! Nga mihi.

Massive amount on greys hill its been happily growing fror years in its containment zone. Wind borne seeds speading all over gisborne

And just like that we have 25 new rat trap boxes! 10 highly passionate and talented volunteers traded in a good part of their Saturday (and a stunner it was!) to whip these up. We cannot emphasize enough how absolutely amazing the Menzshed group is! Helping our community is what they long to do. Add in a good dose of energy and wit and it cannot but translate into pure magic! It was so lovely to be able to visit Steve and Dane and canine Dakota in their workshop this morning. They are always keen to get more people through the door and tackle new community projects, as long as all materials are provided, so do get in touch with them! Bunnings Trade Gisborne, thank you, thank you, thank you for very kindly donating all the materials that were needed for these traps! Nga mihi.

Great work...rat busters

Success already..... deployed rat trap last night with peanut butter ... And bingo one there in the morning....the chickens were very happy ........ Great stuff......thank you

The garlic planting and growing workshop at the Tairawhiti Environment Centre on Saturday morning was held under a beautiful cloudless blue sky. It was so good to hold a workshop! And wonderful to have some children in the garden!

A big warm thanks to John who shared his extensive knowledge and a big warm thanks to those that came along to the workshop.

A big shout-out to those behind the scenes who keep the Tairawhiti Environment Centre alive and healthy. Thank you! It has been an interesting time the past few months. You have done an amazing job of keeping everyone safe and the group in good shape.

Special mentions: Rena and Stephanie, the two staff at TEC who work so efficiently and so joyfully. Thank you! And the TEC Committee who do all sorts of really important stuff, mostly behind the scenes – thank you! And here’s to Katie (and the team of garden volunteers), who manages the garden so well, so beautifully. Thank you!

Cheers,
Glenda

We are absolutely humbled to have the talented Menzshed volunteers help us implement our biodiversity kaupapa. Their passion, dedication and skill will see 25 new Victor Rat traps built, which will be able to be rented out from our trap library. None of this would be possible without the very generous support of Bunnings Trade Gisborne who have kindly donated all of the materials! Thank you Samantha, thank you Steve and everyone involved! So awesome to be building a resilient Te Tairawhiti together!Look what we got from Bunnings Trade Gisborne today. Its a bit like Christmas!
Have been asked by Tairawhiti Environment Centre to make them some Predator Traps and Bunnings Trade donated all the materials. If you are thinking about coming to the shed we are open and you can give us a hand making the traps, no experience required.
Look forward to seeing you, we are open Tuesday 9 - 12, Thursday 9 - 2 and Saturday 9 - 3 or when everyones finished their projects or drunk their brew.

I remember back in the early 80s being excited to see black stilts when tramping. Superb to read about this successful conservation work

We're back!

We've rearranged the office and shop space for Level 2 and had a trial run yesterday to make sure that we can open safely under Level 2 conditions. The Enviro Store is open for trading with online payments so you can grab your favourite soaps and stock up on bamboo toothbrushes again.

We are able to accept your stashes of coffee pods, pens, CFL lightbulbs, plastic toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes for recycling again. Please make sure your items for recycling are clean and dry before you bring them in. *edit - we can also accept The Collective brand yoghurt pouches for recycling.

We are not able to start our education workshops just yet but keep an eye out on the page and on Gizzy Local for when they are back up and running. We had a great programme planned for you before lockdown and we're really looking forward to sharing it with you.

Day 7 of Level 4 is also Week 10 of "Weedbusters" Wednesday. If you have discovered this plant growing around your section now could be a good time to dig it out.

There is no green waste disposal available in Gisborne right now. Our recommendation is to place green waste that includes noxious weeds in a black sack style plastic bag, seal it, and leave it for a few weeks to allow it to break down. The goal is to let the plant break down enough so that it can't spread seeds or leaf nodes and keep spreading through your garden.
