I’m keen for regular meet ups too, and Hanna’s garden in a few weeks sounds perfect for a first gathering :-)

If you didn’t make it to the edible expo here a few local food projects you might want to get involved with:  

Kaputone Community Orchard

Agropolis Urban Farm

Rangiora Food Swap  (not technically chch but very cool we should do this here…)

Your local community garden

Southern Seed Exchange (also on FacebookOoooby)

I am intend going to the Expo in the morning and to the New Brighton Community Garden open day in the afternoon.

Hi, I would be really keen to meet up with others at the expo tomorrow, and would definitely be keen to be involved in a regular meet up!

For the people who are going to the Expo, should we make a time and/or place to meet up? Alternatively, I'd be quite happy to offer our garden as a place for a first gathering, just give me a couple of weeks to get sorted and try and get on top of the weeds (a month away from the garden this time of the year really hurts!)

Great to see such a reaction :-) I didn't know about the Edible Expo either and I'm keen to go as well. I also like the idea of regular meet-ups. Thanks for all the offers for tomato seedlings as well. Tigerella are one of our usual stand-bys, so I'm very keen on those :-), but the others sound great as well. I'll contact you individually.

Hi Hanna,

If you are still wanting more tomato seedlings I have a few spare of a few different varieties- gardeners delight, san mazano, riesentrauble, yellow pear, etc. I live near Bromley Park.

Also next Saturday there will be lots of tomato and other seedlings on sale at the New Brighton Community Garden open day.

Gatherings sound great :) I may or may not be able to make it to the edible expo next weekend - still waiting on a date for something else, hoping that it'll turn out to be Sunday! - but doubling that event as a meet-up definitely makes sense.

Hanna - I have some tomato seedlings stiil too. Pomodoro, yellow pear, black krim.. I'm sure there's another but it escapes me right now!

I recently moved here from Tauranga, despite our much smaller size we had a very active group. There was a gathering each month at a different members place to check out their gardens and to share information and plants/seeds/produce and have workshops. Maybe we could get the ball rolling with a gathering at someones place in the near future? I would offer if I actually had anything on the go down here!

Definitely will be going to the Edible Canty expo, thanks Mariana, didn't even know about it. Perhaps we could organise our first gathering there?

Comment by Mariana on October 27, 2014 at 10:33am

Hi Hanna, I appreciate your posts :-) I can offer two tigerella, msg me if you'd like them.

I'm keen for this group to be more active. The Edible Canterbury Expo on Saturday is going to be inspiring :-)

Comment by Hanna on October 27, 2014 at 9:55am

Yes, it seems like I'm the only user :-P. I've started to be too embarrassed to put up any more posts. Is everyone using another group? If someone is reading this, I am actually looking for some tomato seedlings, since I was away during the critical seedling growing stage this year. I haven't got much to swap at the moment, but I could offer eggs, frozen raspberries or some seed and some of the reproductive yacon tubers should still be ok too.
