The latest issue of Aro Valley's community newspaper Valley Voice (Feb 2013) has a good article about Kai O Te Aro (KOTA) - an interview with Charles with the headline 'Could Aro Valley Grow Its Own Vegetables?'. Over the past few years Charles and Lillian have shared the task of writing a little report about KOTA in that monthly newspaper.The group's contact email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Do get in touch if you would like to be on our mailing list for reminders about group gardening dates and potluck dinners.
Thanks Lillian. I took your advice and picked the cinderella broad beans which were fast approaching the 'turn into a pumpkin' moment. Today's promised showers have not arrived so I'll do some more watering this evening at Secret Garden.
Hey folks, although things look overgrown, there is a fair bit to harvest. In particular, BROAD BEANS at the steps (and some kale too). Please take them! As you enter the garden, they're in the far corner on the right. Hope you've all had a great summer holiday and looking forward to seeing people gardening at our regular time 2pm Sunday 20th Jan.
Hello Welly friends,
Greetings from Aro North. Just wanted to let you know, we nominated our colleague Sister Rosemary for NZ Gardener of the Year, and she is now a finalist.
The top award will be decided by public vote. For more details, see the page on our garden ooooby site: Vote for Rosie!
Exciting times! All the best,
PS Congratulations Charles for the coordinator role. Glad that funding came through. I hope you find all sorts of wonderful ways to grow the team!
Working Bee this Sunday!
2pm outside the community Centre. We'll be focussing on the orchard.
Hey Gardeners, just letting everyone know that I officially started my contract as the Kai o te Aro Community Development Coordinator today! I'll be working out of the AVCC on Wednesdays- come say hi and let me know your ideas for how we can grow and nurture our garden and community.
Hi Katie and others,
Yes, the CSA does still exist! We are now accepting harvest share subscriptions at any time of year (not restricted to seasonal intakes as it used to be).
We also now have an Aro Valley pick up point, so there is no longer a need to trek across town to Mt Vic.
A great way to learn about the CSA and the produce we grow is to come to our farm day on Sunday, the 30th of September.
You can find more info about the CSA on our website or check out the facebook event for the farm day.
There is a regular produce swap starting at Hill St Market, Wellington on Saturday 15th September. Everyone is welcome to come along to the launch event!
or check out facebook
awesome, thanks charles!
