Wilderland razed by huge wildfire

Aue! Our hearts go out to the people of the Wilderland community, whose homes were destroyed by an "explosive" scrub fire near Whitianga last night. [NZ Herald Story|Waikato Times story] Also affected are wwoofers who had to leave possessions behind during the evacuation.
Once the community members have had a chance to overcome the shock and gather their thoughts, we ask you to let us know how the Permaculture community in New Zealand can help.

Just awful to hear this news and see this picture. Wanted you to know that the thoughts and prayers of the permaculture community in Texas are with you - many of us suffered through some terrible wildfires a few years ago, and we appreciate how unsettling this can be for those involved.

Know that the best things in life follow closely on the heels of the worst things in life... Be strong.
