Kiwi Aversion Training for Dogs

Do you own dogs that hunt, live or work in areas where kiwi may reside?
Kiwi aversion training will teach your dog to avoid them if encountered. Training consists of your dog being taken through a course which includes stuffed kiwi, dead kiwi and nesting material to help trigger the dog’s senses.

An electric collar is worn by the dog and is activated when deemed appropriate to create a negative response when interest in the kiwi is shown. The level of shock is minimal and applied by a professional.
Participants MUST register by contacting the DOC New Plymouth Office. In case of postponement, those registered will be notified.
Please contact DOC New Plymouth Office to register your dog and for more information – 06 759 0350

Waitoriki & Inglewood Crop Swap

The Crop Swap one to celebrate, we have been crop swapping at Waitoriki Hall for 5 years. To celebrate there will be a morning tea after the swapping, please bring a plate if you would like to stay and talk to the friends we have all made through Crop Swap. And as a reminder of what Crop Swap means, here are a few thoughts...

Give generously, take mindfully
Bring surplus from your garden, and home crafts are welcomed too.
Welcome and support one another
Take your time and keep others in mind.

And thank you Crop Swappers for your generous koha that keeps Waitoriki Hall alive, you are all amazing
