366 days of gratitude

Water, North Otago’s Gold is the title of a book by Keith Pheasant which was launched in Oamaru this evening.

It tells the history from the development of water schemes in the 1870s to irrigation today.

Most of the people responsible for North Otago Irrigation Company’s scheme gathered for dinner after the launch to reminisce and share stories of the vision, tenacity, and hard work which it took to get irrigation to the downlands.

Tonight I’m grateful for those people and the water which is indeed North Otago’s gold.
