BLUESKIN RESILIENT COMMUNITIES TRUST

by Scott Willis


Happy New Year to you all; 2012 has arrived with some new developments for the Blueskin Resilient Communities Trust (BRCT).  In December, BRCT Chair Lynnaire Johnston stood down from the trust after 18 productive months at the helm, and the trust wishes to thank Lynnaire for all her hard work. At the same time, BRCT is very pleased to welcome Kate Parker from Warrington on board as a new trustee, while Ross Johnston (no relation to Lynnaire) has been elected as chair.

 

The New Year seems a timely moment to reiterate that the BRCT's vision is 'to facilitate a positive, healthy, secure and resilient future for Blueskin Bay and linked communities and promote sustainable resource use'.  The Blueskin Energy Project is BRCT's main focus, as this initiative appears to contain the best prospects for not just greater energy security but also greater economic security for Blueskin Bay.


And it is with questions of economic turmoil and resource depletion in mind that BRCT is hosting a public forum on the subject of 'Building Local Resilience'. We are proud to announce that internationally renowned speaker and thinker Nicole Foss will headline this forum on 19 March in Waitati Hall (7:00pm) and we are planning a dynamic event. Make sure that date is in your diary! Remember, BRCT is driven by community ideas and primarily volunteer power, so if you have an idea for an event or project, or you'd like to run under the BRCT umbrella, please let us know.

 

The Clarke family, Nicky, Nathan, Max, Austin and Forest, who have been such community stalwarts during their time in Blueskin Bay, have recently upped sticks for Nelson. They're already sadly missed (though I expect they'll receive plenty of visitors at their new home). As a parting memento though they have generously donated Nathan's steam-punk spit-roaster to BRCT to use at community events, So in lieu of Nicky catering for us, they've provided the tools for us to do it ourselves – now that's fostering resilience!

 

In funding news, the Dunedin City Council community fund contributed $2,400 to BRCT late last year, which will assist the trust's efforts to develop a Community Energy Advisory Service, while results from other applications for the same purpose are still pending. The trust enters 2012 with a reliance on a mix of community funding, contract work, donations and volunteer contributions.

 

As always, BRCT welcomes any feedback on its activities and offers of assistance. One of the best ways to find out about BRCT is to talk with trustees or contact Scott at the trust office. BRCT trustees and officers are Ross Johnston, PJ Clarke, Antony Deaker, Tony Wilson, Gerry Carrington, Chris Skellett and Kate Parker, with Jeanette Fitzsimons as the trust's patron. You can also find out more about the trust at: http://www.blueskinpower.co.nz/ , or by calling 482 2048.

BLUESKIN ENERGY PROJECT

by Scott Willis

 As I write, Meridian has announced that it is abandoning its $2 billion 'Project Hayes' proposal (a 176-turbine, 633-megawatt wind farm in Central). That is somewhat of a different scale to our 4-turbine, 2-megawatt Blueskin project, and the project trajectory could hardly be more dissimilar. On one side is one of New Zealand's largest electricity producer/retailers (or 'Gentailer'), on the other is a community initiative seeking greater energy security for the local community. Eric Pyle, head of the NZ Wind Energy Association, argues that this decision demonstrates that the wind industry is 'learning more about the best locations', and I think it also demonstrates that the Business As Usual model of large-scale development is no longer an uncomplicated model in New Zealand.

That impression was reinforced when I caught up with Green Party energy spokesperson Gareth Hughes on his way down to the 'Keep the Coal In the Hole Festival'. Gareth pointed out also that the Meridian project and the Blueskin project are very different – one is a top-down Think Big project, the way electricity has been 'done' in New Zealand since the 1930's, while our Blueskin project is bottom-up, with everyone having a stake and contributing. If we can achieve projects like the Blueskin wind cluster, he argued, then we can 'create a robust grid, with less loss and more popular support'.  Gareth was very clear that we need renewable energy if we are to avert climate crisis and wants to see in the future a 'more friendly legislative regime for community projects, and a grid which is designed to encompass decentralised community projects so we can have a network which is resilient in the face of future challenges'.

 Meanwhile, our project is moving forward. I had a range of very productive meetings in Wellington just prior to the Christmas holidays and found a wide range of support even from within government agencies (though that's not followed up with much supportive policy at present).


We had also hoped to have our 'Community Engagement' report complete by the end of last year, however due mainly to staffing changes at EECA there has been a delay, and we're only now able to begin finalising the report. Following a meeting at the Electricity Authority I now have some work to do assessing whether we may have a viable project to offer a retail option for Blueskin (coupled with generation), and thus potentially secure more complete control, which of course will be part of further community discussions as we seek further opinion on the project.

 

Finally, while sad to see the Clarke family and the Robinsons leave us for Nelson I'm delighted to be able to welcome Chris Freear and Linda Van Barneveld to Blueskin. Chris is project manager for Our Wind Limited (remember the agreement signed between OWL and BRCT almost a year ago?) and they have just purchased a property in Waitati.

WAITATI OPEN ORCHARDS: A Growing Branch of the Waitati Edible Gardens Group

by Jason Ross

The fruit trees we planted last winter, mainly in Brown St, are doing
really well despite the dry start to summer. There are a few fruits on
several of the older trees that will give us a taste this year of
what's to come!

Waitati Open Orchards (WOO) was also involved in planting edible
plants around the new skateboard park, in conjunction with the A&P
Society and Blueskin Nurseries. A hedge of Chilean guavas (Myrtus
ugni) was planted on a dry bank, and in other areas a plum and apple,
gooseberries and worcesterberries to be enjoyed by hungry skaters.

Appeal for stall goods. At the upcoming WEGie Harvest Markets WOO will
have a fundraising stall. The first of the three monthly markets is on
Sunday, 19 February. We are fundraising to purchase more trees by
selling donated produce, preserves, cooked food, garden plants and
tools or anything related to gardening and harvesting.  Please drop
off items that you are able to donate at the Village Potager, cnr
Foyle St and Doctors Point Rd (look for the sign) before the Sunday,
or bring them along on the day before the market begins at 10:30am.

For you home fruit growers: This month's tip is to try the lost art of
summer pruning of fruit trees. Pruning in January or February is great
for older established trees, very vigorous trees that tend to be shy
at cropping, and for espaliers. Summer pruning slows down the growth
of branches and encourages fruiting, the opposite effect to winter
pruning. Pruning is much the same as winter pruning, cut out crossing
and crowded branches and then shorten unwanted new growth back to an
outward facing bud, leaving them about one centimetre long. Don't
prune the tips of branches that you want to keep getting longer, and
don't prune young trees.

Waitati Open Orchards is a group of keen folk on a mission to plant
fruit trees in public spaces around Waitati for all to enjoy. Email
waitatiopenorchard@gmail.com to join our mailing list, or contact
Jason Ross, 482 2625.

OROKONUI ECOSANCTUARY

by Sue Hensley

This time of year is always great in the forest with lots of chicks
temporarily boosting populations until they go off to find new
territories for themselves. Bellbird chicks are easy to locate from
their insistent 'feed me' call and it's a treat to watch the parents
come in to feed them.

A tomtit pair built their nest by the side of the busiest track at the
busiest time of year and successfully raised four chicks. It was
amazing to watch these busy parents flying in every five minutes or so
with food for their young. It shows how unaware people can be and how
secretive birds can be that the nest was built and the eggs sat on for
two weeks before anyone noticed!

It has been confirmed – Orokonui has the tallest tree in New Zealand.
In fact it is the only tree in the country taller than 80 metres. A
pair of surveyors from Washington recently spent their time in New
Zealand measuring all the tall trees using survey lasers and the sine
method. Interestingly the tree tagged as the tallest was measured at
74.2m but another tree further down the track was noticed and on
measuring this one it was found to be 80.5m. The tallest tree is a
Eucalyptus regnans and in its Australian home has been recorded at
heights of around 120m. New Zealand native trees tend to grow wide
rather than tall with the tallest, the kahikatea reaching around 60m
in height.

News and events can be found on www.orokonui.org.nz or on our facebook
page. The Visitor Centre and café are open daily 9.30 – 4.30.

Blueskin Low Oil Commuting Group (BLOC)

By Virginia Toy

Happy 2012 BLOC members - both cyclists and non-cyclists. At present,
the weather is fine and the cycling is still easy. I've been passed on
the road to the city by a lot of cyclists in the last few weeks. Many
of them (you?) look to be commuting to work. It is great to see so
many people out there on their bikes! The challenge for all of us will
be to keep cycling as the weather deteriorates.
Potluck meet 'n' greet: In an attempt to build and maintain our
support network for cyclists and other alternative travellers, I'd
like to propose we all gather for a pot luck dinner on Friday 24 Feb,
venue tbc via email. If you wish to attend and meet some of the other
local cyclists, please email bloc@geology.co.nz so I can tell you
where to go. I hope that Lucy and Simon will be back from their cycle
tour over summer and can tell us all about it at this meeting.
Mailing list: My intention for the BLOC email list is that mail to
bloc@geology.co.nz will be automatically forwarded to all members.
Thus, if you need a cycling friend/supporter or a lift to or from town
in a hurry, you can email the list and hope for a rapid reply.
However, I didn't manage to set this up last year. I have finally
found a way to do it via Gmail, and so there is a new BLOC email
address: bloc.dunedin@gmail.com. The old address still works too. If
you're already on our mailing list you should receive an email soon
asking you approve your email as a forwarding address from this
account - please do. If you're not on the list yet... why not? Email
bloc@geology.co.nz to join.
See you all on the road - don't forget to holler 'hello' to me as you pass!

Gallery hosts sacred works for a secular age

By Charles Barrington, Blueskin Gallery

Gallery on Blueskin will host a show by New Zealand artist Clare
Reilly from Saturday 4 February.
Clare's works express an underlying connection with the natural
environment, in particular an empathy with native birds combined with
a celebration of the joyous aspects of life. Serene and meditative,
her paintings are sacred works for a secular age.
Clare's painting career has spanned the last three decades and she
continues to paint full-time in Christchurch. She says, "There's an
utter, utter joy and pleasure in working with paint that fulfils me
tremendously. I feel like I'm flying."
In recent years Clare has completed many private commissions and her
works have found their way into collections in Argentina, North
America, Israel, Europe, Australia and the Middle East, as well as
throughout New Zealand. She has exhibited extensively over the past
three decades.
For the past three years, Clare has worked closely with the Banks
Peninsula Conservation Trust on the Tui Restoration Project, and was
given the opportunity to be part of the 2010 Tui Capture and Transfer
team that worked on Maud Island, as well as providing resources for
fundraising the project.

BLUESKIN MAINLY MUSIC

by Jenny O'Neill

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with some special family
time.  There would have been lots of first Christmases for all those
new little people who were born last year. I know how nice it was
having our newest wee man with us during this special time. We hope
the New Year has got off to a good start for everyone, also. It
certainly has been wonderful having some lovely summer days giving
plenty of opportunity for the kids to get outside and play.

We are looking forward to hearing all about everyone's holidays and
seeing how all the little and bigger children have grown.  Blueskin
Mainly Music is starting back on 14 February this year. Being
Valentine's Day we will be having songs about love and what we love,
including all the favourites like 'Jack in the box', 'The wheels on
the bus' and 'Twinkle, twinkle little star'.

If anyone would like to join us for a fun time of music, movement and
interaction with your little one/s all are welcome.  After the
half-hour music session there is a free cuppa and yummy morning tea
for both the children and caregivers.  The children can then have a
play with some of the great toys from the Waitati Toy Library while
the parents get a chance to catch up and chat.

Blueskin Mainly Music runs every Tuesday at 10:00am in the Waitati
Hall, school term time, $2 per child or $3 per family.  Any queries
please phone or text Jenny on 027-378 7258 -- but you are welcome just
to turn up.

Living legends Orokonui plant site

By Lucy Hardy

A big thanks to all the volunteers who have been helping to maintain
the Living Legends native plants at the Orokonui Scenic Reserve. We
had phenomenal weed growth in spring last year, so there has been
plenty of work to do.
A group of happy volunteers made a huge difference to some of the
plantings on Sunday 15 January. They weeded and re-matted with coffee
sacks an area along the river edge.
We are planning another working bee on Sunday 26 February starting at
9.30 am, and we plan to be out there for the morning. We are looking
for more volunteers, so if you could spare an hour or so to help it
would be very much appreciated. Of course you can go down there any
time you like and release a few plants as every bit helps.

Warrington Surf Lifesaving Garage Sale

Opera House Trust AGM

By Fiona Smith and Jack Monaghan

"The Opera House" has been around for a few years now and has a rich
stretch of eclectic history. It is run by a charitable trust, The
Opera House Trust, composed of mostly local people interested in the
management of this unique and wonderful resource for a sustainable
community.
Recently, the trust updated its objectives in line with the new
Charities Act 2005 (we should perhaps define "poor" as "the relatively
impoverished 99%", billionaires need not apply): the relief of poverty
and general community benefits. The objectives are:
To relieve poverty by providing the poor a framework for sustainable,
energy-efficient living, by providing fruit and vegetable gardens,
renewable energy, the space for cottage industry and accommodation at
affordable rates.
To benefit the community by nursing plants for and lobbying for native
wetland regeneration on adjacent public lands.
The Trust's 2012 AGM will be held at The Opera House, 52 Doctors Point
Road on Monday March 5 at 6pm. All welcome.
