Kaiapoi Toastmasters
Address: Where they meet
Kaiapoi Club Bistro
113 Raven Quay, Kaiapoi 7630
Business Description:
First of all, some important points:.
   ►  you will never be pressured or pushed into anything
   ►  you will always be given positive feedback and support
   ►  Toastmasters welcomes everyone from all backgrounds
   ►  we're non-profit

A Toastmasters meeting is a learn-by-doing workshop in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere.

There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure.

Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to give you the foundation in public speaking.

Kaiapoi laundromat

Someone made the following comment

Great wee laundromat - I believe its the only purpose built laundry in Waimakariri & Hurunui Districts - washes are $4 and gas driers $2 per 10 mins. Laundry detergent is automatically added so no need for your own. Could do with more dusting and wiping down daily but otherwise its very handy and much needed service in the area.

Tuahiwi Organics
Address: 496 Tuahiwi Road
Business Description:

Our Philosophy

Chris Ashwell of Tuahiwi Organic Gardens has been growing organic produce since 1995. Our vegetables are lovingly grown without sprays and pesticides in fabulous Paparoa and Temuka silt loam soil in Tuahiwi, North Canterbury.

Chris has a natural connection with his beloved soil and there’s nothing more he loves to do than to walk through his freshly worked soil. He has a natural affinity with the soil and he has the ability to work out what the soil is lacking by smelling it and clasping it in his hand. For him, growing beautiful vegetables starts with the soil.

At Tuahiwi Organic Garden we grow a wide variety of vegetables from everyday staples to more difficult to source vegetables such as celeriac, kohlrabi, turnips, daikon radish and fennel bulb. These vegetables are grown in great soil and irrigated and washed clean in Tuahiwi’s pure artesian water.

Tuahiwi Organic Gardens have now moved with the times and are offering an online vegetable delivery service. More of the same great fruit and vegetables but delivered to your door weekly or whenever you choose.

Get a hand picked, hand delivered box of fresh produce weekly
