If anyone is interested in Urtica dioica, I have quite a bit of it available for free to anyone that will come and get it. I'm in the Poukawa Hawkes Bay area... 25min out of Hastings.

Any vege people here? We've just finalised details for an exciting event aimed and Hawkes Bay Vegetarians & Vegans! Please pass on to any vege people you may know as well :)

Veg, Vino & Vines 

Sunday 10 November 2013, 12pm to 3pm at Moana Park, 530 Puketapu Road, Taradale 

Come and enjoy a vegan/vegetarian picnic at picturesque Moana Park in Taradale. Enjoy live music, great wine and free vegan tasters in a scenic vineyard setting. 

A free winemaker presentation and tasting will be held at 12.30pm. Taste your way through some of Moana Park’s wines and learn about their natural philosophies from dab hand James Wilkie, winemaker.  It’s all about creating low allergen wines by starting with exceptional fruit quality, limited additives, no animal products used, vegetarian approved, following sustainable practices, zero spray residue resulting in hand-crafted multi-award winning wines that are friendlier on both the body and the mind. 

Bring along your own vegan/vegetarian picnic or upgrade your ticket and enjoy a tasty vegan platter from Chantel’s Wholefood Kitchen. 

The Vegan Society of Aotearoa will be providing free vegan samples during the afternoon and there will be the opportunity to win some free vegan goodies. 

Local artist Daniel Munro will entertain you with live music as you chill out for the afternoon in Moana's relaxed valley surrounds. We have lots of picnic tables but you are welcome to bring your picnic blanket too.

BYO non-alcoholic beverages are welcome but no BYO alcohol please.

Hi all

I have LOADS of jeruselum artichoke tubers to give away - FREE to anyone who wants any!! Please take some - please take lots! I grew too many last year, got sick of them part way through winter, and now the ones left in the ground are sprouting madly! 

I am in Waipawa, but can arrange for them to be picked up from Napier or Hastings as well :)

Hi everyone. I am looking for some help please. IN my last place, I didn't have lawns to speak of, so my lawnmower was dormant for nearly 4 years. It was well covered and kept dry. Since moving to Waipukurau earlier this year, I have cleaned the mower, cleaned the spark plug, re-oiled and re-fuelled, but sadly I cannot get it started. The last time it was used, it went absolutely fine. I think it possibly is in need of a service, but unfortunately, I cannot afford that. Is there anyone who may be able to help me please? My lawns are desperate!

I have an abundance of quince available to share

as we have had to trim the tree in order to save it from toppling over, due to poor pruning!  If you would like some - we are in Morere, Northern Hawkes Bay...let me know...

I sure agree Richard - the way everything has grown with all the rain, but not a lot of joy with peppers and chilli this year.... they are there but not growing much , thought i might put them into my small green house , do you think they will come to anything now??  Or should i just discard them?? The ones that have done best are the left overs from last year...strange!

Comment by Helen on February 18, 2012 at 9:49am

 Just something of interest , my mother lives in a residential area on the flat in town and has an opposum coming every night and neatly eating the skin off a lemon or two , not interested in anything else !!
