Hello I have been a member but never really posted much.
Hands up all those who have visited Rotorua in North Island New Zealand.

I'm in Tikitere, close to the apple orchard. I notice you have been out East side. I'd love to know more about Angus cattle, and am interested in your volunteer groups. I'm interested in local food security, amongst other aspects of sustainability.
