Episode Information
Nelson was hard hit by the devastating weather event mid August and staff and volunteers at the Brook Waimārama Sanctuary were on high alert anticipating the worst. Despite receiving more than 700 mm of rain, the damage was thankfully less than anticipated. The weather event also had an impact on the SONZI conference that week, but it was still a great conference for the approx 100 attendees, some of whom had a chance to taste the latest brew from Nelson's FreeHouse - a Powelliphanta Porter.
