GREY LYNN 2030 SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER

Tāmaki Makaurau Water Shortage!

It's a widely known current issue within Tāmaki Makaurau that we are in a period of water drought. The Ministry for the Environment (MfE) have put together a must-watch video with tips to reduce your water usage!

This is an issue within our city that is going to take a genuine community effort to get through. Conserve your water where possible and soon enough we'll get the levels back up!

Eco Matters FREE Water Saving Audit  

Here is a great way of learning how to reduce your water usage! Eco Matters FREE water saving audit: They do audits in clients' homes and help to reduce your water usage and learn about day to day sustainable practices. They also have a range of water restricting items that they can install too.

Anyone can sign up here, or opt to do a DIY audit. Both options result in a personal recommendation letter of how to reduce your home environmental footprint.

Volunteers! 

Grey Lynn 2030 is a great place to volunteer. With a range of projects throughout the year all to build resilience, connectedness and sustainability within our wider Grey Lynn community. If you have an idea for a project, or you're interested in getting involved, email us here!

Building Community Resilience in Grey Lynn

Grey Lynn 2030 partnered with the Grey Lynn Farmers Market stallholders to deliver fresh food to 50 families that the Auckland Women's Refuge help look after! Building community resilience in ACTION!

We applied for and received an MSD grant for COVID-19 Community Awareness and Preparedness to help look after vulnerable people in our community and also support the local market food stall holders in times which have often been uncertain! The parcels were filled with eggs🥚carrots🥕kumara🍠apples🍎and other varieties of fruit, veges and produce to help support our local community. Thank you so much to everybody who helped out to make this collaboration possible.
