WELLINGTON Lorenzo Carter Jersey , Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand's population grew by 100,400 in the year ended June 2017, the largest ever increase for a year, the country's statistics department Stats NZ said on Monday.


New Zealand's estimated resident population was 4.79 million as of June 30, and net migration -- arrivals minus departures -- contributed 72,300 people to the growth Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , along with 28,100 from natural increase -- births minus deaths, said a Stats NZ release.


Half of last year's growth was in the 15-39 age group, population statistics senior manager Peter Dolan said, adding that this reflects the contribution of migration to the population growth.


Over the last five years, New Zealand's population grew by nearly 390 Lamar Jackson Jersey ,000, the release said.


New Zealand's current gain from net migration equates to 15 people per 1,000 population, and much higher net migration rates were experienced in the late 1870s, it said, adding that ""similar rates to today were also experienced in the early 1900s and early 2000s.""


New Zealand's current net migration rate is high by New Zealand standards Kyle Lauletta Jersey , but historically it has fluctuated more than other countries, Dolan said.


""At the moment, we're experiencing rates similar to Australia's in 2009,"" Dolan said.


Most migrants are arriving on short-term work and student visas, he said, adding that many of them Kolton Miller Jersey , however, extend their visas, or transition to other visa types including residence visas, and it makes sense to count long-term stayers as part of the population, rather than as short-term visitors.


As a result of recent migration flows, the share of New Zealand's population aged 15-39 years rose from 33 percent in 2013 to 34 percent in 2017. This is a reversal of the trend that saw the share drop from 41 percent in the mid-1980s.


Growth of the broad over 65 age group continues to accelerate Kerryon Johnson Jersey , up 25,000 in the last year, as the large birth cohorts of the 1950s-early 1970s begin to reach those ages, the release said.


The population at the oldest ages is also growing, reflecting decreasing death rates at all ages over a long period of time. The over-90 years population is now 30,000 compared with 20 Kemoko Turay Jersey ,000 in 2007. It is projected to reach 40,000 in the late 2020s and 50,000 in the early 2030s, it said.

" In recent years the term lasagna gardening has become a wildly popular catch phrase in the online gardening community. Promising simple and easy construction with very little work. But is it really a viable option for homeowners who want to start their own victory garden this year? For those unfamiliar with lasagna gardening it is described as the layering of organic materials such as leaves and grass, shredded paper and vegetable scraps. The theory is that as the material breaks down it creates rich fluffy soil for your garden without any work.

There is a never ending supply of new ways that promise easier and faster ways to yield results. The basic fact that nature works on her own design continues to elude some of the best intentioned. I have been writing for years that gardening is a process Justin Reid Jersey , not an event.

I am not a person that is easily distracted by passing fads. I am an organic gardener at heart for the simple reason it is the way of nature. I view every new idea for gardening with a dubious and skeptical eye. When you are working in harmony with nature you can t help but be successful. Conversely, when you try to circumvent the process you are doomed to failure.

The classic example is the gardener who is obsessed with growing tomatoes. He wants the biggest, brightest fruit in the shortest amount of time so he decides to use a synthetic chemical to force the plant to mature at an unnatural speed. Yes, they can get some incredible results. Sometimes. The only thing miracle like with these chemicals is that people continue to be suckered by all the deceptive marketing and pretty packaging. Unfortunately, there is precious little thought about all the chemicals that plant has absorbed and how much of it we are ingesting. Do NOT tell me that you care about the environment when you are using toxic chemicals. The cumulative effect of consuming food that is laced with toxins is evidenced today in most peoples health.

My experience watching others who have jumped into this fad has been entertaining at times and has provided numerous teaching moments. What I typically see is a homeowner who has essentially built an anaerobic compost pile that stinks and everything planted just rots right along with it. While there is merit in using shredded organic materials around plantings in your raised bed gardens to control weeds and converse moisture, it is folly to think that you can plant in this media with any degree of success. It is true that all these layers will decompose and contribute to the fertility of the soil Josh Rosen Jersey , but they do NOT create soil in and of itself.

Fertile soil is a complex structure of humis, organic matter and an array of minerals. It is comprised of natural elements such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. It also contains diverse populations of micro organisms such as protozoa, fungi, bacteria, nematodes and earthworms. This is not going to be replaced by the layered or lasagna method Josh Jackson Jersey , no matter how well intentioned.

A better approach to gardening is the raised bed method that is constructed directly on the ground and filled with a correct soil mixture with a.
