Ames Street goes Green


Last Sunday, after a week of tyrannical weather, the sun came out and our community had our third planning meeting to prepare for the competition.  There was some delicious food and together with a good chat a lovely afternoon was had by all!

Gathering our intel – how are we doing?

We will be doing a Waste Audit in the 3rd weekend of July – to see what is filling up our rubbish bags. Once we know where our weaknesses are we can make a plan to reduce it and apply to the Kapiti council for a grant to help.

During July we also plan to get intimate with our new water meters, learning how to read them, learning how to identify leaks and working out how we can reduce our consumption.

One of our neighbours has a unused plot in his garden that he has offered to loan us (land share) to create a Community Garden.  We will be planning the Spring planting for this during July.
