Do you want to help bring local food to local people, while earning money and getting a great discount off your own Ooooby box? We're looking for some more packers! We'd start off with you in a relief position, which could move to a permanent weekly position when one opens up. We pack in Mt Wellington on Tuesdays, starting at 7am and going for about 5-6 hours, depending on the week. We pay $16/hour, and give a 40% discount off any produce you buy, and 20% off extras like bread,…

Have planted out a lot of self sown corn and lettuce seedlings and mixed the corn with broad beans. Need to add squash for the Mexican triumvirate. The whole site is covered in weeds now and we are finally getting some mandarins, lemons, limes and oranges.

Gluten free

Junko has researched and perfected a number of gluten free bread and cake recipes to get me off the wheat energy roller coaster.

Some taro and a couple of bananas have survived where I chucked them in the corner soak hole where the run-off ends up. Comfrey is everywhere. I miss my chickens - if anyone in Akl needs to get rid of a couple of layers please…
