At our family farm near Temuka we grew blackcurrants, potatoes, barley and carrots and raised stock so I know how important water is to our area for many different reasons.
I'd love to see my young family grow up to enjoy healthy rivers that allow swimming, fishing and mahinga kai opportunities into the future.
This, along with economic growth and development, can be achieved with some careful management and foresight and I think the people around the zone committee table are all working hard to reflect the varying views and opinions of the community.
The challenge for us is to harness these areas and deliver them through the Healthy Catchment Project and to so this we need good community input, so it's important to make yourself heard.
In mid-September 2016 we are hosting public meetings in Timaru, Fairlie and Geraldine so come along and share your thoughts on the current health of this zone. Meeting details to be advised.
