Great to see so much info on this web-site.
I work with organic and common sence solutions around Wanaka to the West coast.
I make tools for the farming, fencing, construction, tree planting, trades.
My passion is alternative power and have done lots of off-grid electrical power systems.
I formerly had nurseries in Western U.S. and in Hawaii.
Bamboo has been a friend and foe and I have lots of experience with this plant and happy to provide any help with Bamboo questions.
Lots of cold weather around here at the moment and I think that the whitebait are starting to make there way up the rivers.
Our lambs have been allright as it was down south that really got hit hard.
Look forward to contributing to this web-site.
Cheers, T.J.

Welcome to the forum, TJ!

I'd really be interested in info on bamboo that would do okay on the Canty plains in our heavy frost area. I've seen a few little patches of it about on farms that I can see from the roadside, and would love to be able to grow it as a fodder for my goats, but so far no luck, though admittedly I haven't really pursued it in about 4-5 years.
