Newsletter October 2015
Spring is in the air and seeds in the ground:
With the energy of spring, the gardens are reawakening, the grass is growing, the birds are singing loudly and the residents are busy preparing the buildings and land for the upcoming courses.
With the theme of this newsletter being sustainability, we are looking at ways to become more sustainable at all the different levels; personally and organisationally. We are busy putting a business plan in place that we hope will address some past challenges and are looking forward to fresh insights and inspirations from the upcoming Permaculture course. This is a process of course, but important seeds are being planted presently and with positive nourishment and care of these seeds, we are looking forward to the flowering season. More news soon as this process unfolds.
Moving on and opportunity to live in paradise:
Our neighbours have reached a transition point in their lives and will be selling their “slice of Paradise”. If you have ever wanted to own some land with multiple developed buildings, an off the grid infrastructure and a beyond words breath-taking environment next door to Anahata, then this is an amazing opportunity. We could say more, but best to see it for yourself (you can view without signing in to dropbox just click the x to close the pop-up).
Have a look even just for the inspiration and please share this opportunity with other like-minded people as our vision is to develop this whole mountain into a sustainable paradise.
Cell Phone Tower Update:
On that note, many of you have asked for an update on the cell tower. Your help and the efforts of many, mean that Vodafone has walked away from this site for now! This is huge and shows what the power of community can do.
However, changes to the NZ National Standards are likely to be adopted that will make it easier for cell phone towers to be put up with even less consultation. We have received a very generous donation, which will allow Anahata and Golden Bay Natural and Linked to continue to pursue avenues to keep the ridgeline protected from this type of development for the benefit of all who come here now and in the future.
