hi all, I have a lime tree that is laden! We are near Eden park so if you would like some free limes, or have anything to trade, please let me know. All ideas of preserving limes greatly appreciated :-)

You are invited to attend the inaugural Ooooby-versity session at the Grey Lynn Community Centre this Thursday the 13th May form 6.30pm -8pm. It's a new way of learning about local, seasonal food gardening that is bullseye relevant for you and your garden. More details here

Hey all, I'm interested to hear from anyone who has tried Square Foot Gardening. What kind of results did you get and how did it compare with other gardening systems you've used?

I live in Kingsland. I have a mulcher/wood chipper to give away for free - only problem it needs fixing and might be quite rusty. I got it from freecycle at least a year ago - thinking I would fix it up and never got round to it. It needs a little bit of welding, maybe. It's electric and yellow.

I also have quite a big pile of garden waste that I have piled up at the bottom of the garden (waiting for it to slowly turn into compost). I'm moving out of my flat in 3 weeks, so I should probably get rid of it. It's not scientifically brown/green mixed - it's just all the stuff from my garden (and some kitchen stuff). If anyone wants it to make their own compost with - get in touch.

'Food for a Future' - a new project to help Auckland schools develop organic orchards and vegetable gardens.

First Public Meeting Wednesday 21 April 7-9pm

Downstairs Meeting Room, Pt Chevalier Community Centre, 18 Huia Road, Pt Chevalier

This project aims to provide free expert advice to Mt. Albert and surrounding area schools to help them develop and maintain gardens and orchards. If possible, we would like to provide free trees too.
While we are targeting Mt. Albert and surrounding suburbs initially, we would eventually like to expand to other parts of Auckland.

Who should come to the meeting ?

anyone who's keen to help -
- teachers,
- parents,
- anyone with knowledge of organic gardening and/or orchards who is keen to share it with teachers,
- anyone who's already involved in school gardens who would like to share expertise and experience
- anyone who's good at fund-raising (we need money for trees)

We now have a facebook page: 'Food for a Future'

Contact: David Hodges, (09)8287673, 0211393925

Next Monday I'm having a video filmed about the rooftop community food gardens venture I've started. It's for an upcoming ad campaign by a big corporate which is getting behind the venture. We're hoping to convey a community feel in the video and are looking for a family or families to be involved in the video. It would be for a couple of hours next Monday in Auckland CBD. Send me a message if you're interested - might be a good way to entertain the kids for a small part of their holidays!

Further to my message about setting up a community garden (below), I've entered a proposal for rooftop food gardens in the CBD in a competition. Please check it out and give it the thumbs up here: http://happyzine.co.nz/2010/02/22/dreamtoreality-entry-emily-harris/

Open day at Sudesh’s community learning centre,
Tuesday and Thursday 16th and 18th Feb, 1 to 2 pm (looking at offering an evening time as well, details posted later), 8A grand Drive, Remuera

This is a place where you can learn, meet others, share knowledge, relax and see what is happening in the garden. We intend to organise organic workshops all through the year to assist people in setting up and maintain productive food gardens. We hope that this is also going to be place where a group will form, and assist this initiative to develop further.
So this week, come and say hello, have a look, get more info, invite your friends to come along.
Our first workshop, “urban food production design” is scheduled for the first week-end of March.
Contact person is Diane 418 04 38

Hi all, I'm keen to look into the feasibility of setting up a community garden in the Parnell/Newmarket area. Is there anyone else out there who might be keen to investigate the possibilities with me?

Oh, and what do you guys use as mulch?? When I was down South, pea straw was readily available, but in Auckland no-one seems to know what i am talking about!
