Dear <<First Name>>
Edible Canterbury Expo
ZingBokashi is a partner in the Agropolis project in Christchurch and a member of the wider Food Resilience Network and now branded Edible Canterbury.
An Expo was held on Nov 1 at the Christchurch Botanic Gardens to introduce the wider public to the concept. Around 1000 persons visited on the day and these were mainly visitors to the Botanic gardens.
A number were from out of Christchurch. The day was an information and discussion day and it was great to view the work being done within the Canterbury region towards Christchurch the most Edible City in New Zealand.
Mr Bokashi will be conducting a workshop on Saturday 13th December on the Agropolis High Street, Christchurch site in conjunction with the normal Saturday working bee.
The workshop will cover the management and operation of the new 120L retrofitted wheelie bins. These are to be used for the collection of food waste from a number of adjoining cafes and then brought back to the Urban farm for maturation then addition to the new mobile growing beds. It is hoped also to introduce for trial a new type of bin which is currently being successfully used in London in the UK. .
Go Green Expo
ZingBokashi also attended and exhibited at the GO Green Expo in Wellington on 8/9 November and again this show was well supported by the people of Wellington and surrounding districts.
9000 visitors attended the show and we were well supported by the interest shown in our expanding range of products and in this case by our newly introduced range of Composting Toilets. ZingBokashi is the NZ Distributor for Brisbane based Ecoflo.

Humates are derived from organic materials such as peat and certain soft coal deposits and contain humic acid.
Humic acid containing products are said to have biological benefits for soil such as-
These attributes very much compliment the beneficial microorganisms in Compost Zing and EarthZing.
- improved soil structure thru the stimulation of soil microorganisms
- increased nutrient uptake and availability
- increased seed germination
- increased root growth=increased pest and disease resistance
- Better crop quality
Humates are now a standard addition to the above products with Earth Zing now having increased amounts added. Earth Zing can be added as a side dressing to established growing garden crops now. Simply sprinkle one handful over the soil surface around plants or in between rows and then follow this by lightly incorporating into the soil
