FREE Pest Control Workshops for the local community

The Forest Bridge Trust is holding free pest control workshops for
communities in Matakana, Leigh and Ahuroa as part of the vision to have a
protected wildlife corridor across Rodney.

Professional trappers will be on hand to give advice on how to deal with
pests using traps or bait, with limited free traps for those attending.
Landowners will also be able to learn about a new user-friendly app called
“Walk the Line” that will enable them at no cost to record their catches
online – and see what others are doing in the area.

All Sundays, 9.15 – 12.30pm
* September 25th Matakana School Hall
* October 9th Ahuroa Community Hall
* October 16th Leigh Community Hall

Bring home the bacon

A practical workshop on making bacon, salami & chorizo.

For full details please view the linked file: Pamphlet-Workshop


Does the idea of making your own traditionally cured and great-tasting meat products excite you?

Could a practical workshop, in which you see how easy it all is, kick-start that hobby?

 I will be running a one-day practical workshop, which focuses on making bacon, salami, chorizo and a few other meat small goods. You will see a simple set-up for cold smoking and air-drying meat products in action.

There will be a maximum of three participants on the day. This ensures a real hands-on experience. Total cost for the day will be $175. This includes breakfast, lunch, and a finishing drink on me at the local pub in Puhoi. The workshop is planned for Saturday the 27h of August.
