Just to make you aware that we have an environmentally friendly business called Eco Soda Blasters, which uses natural baking soda, to clean and strip a range of surfaces, without the abrasive effect of water blasting or sand blasting. In a home situation, stripping of swimming pools prior to painting, refurbishing wooden outdoor furniture and removing paint from an external hard wall surface are some of the services my husband Grant can provide. Removing marine anti foul from boats that are moored is a popular request. Machinery, cars, trucks, mag wheels, and so on are all in a day's work. Call Grant on 098176967 or check out our website for more information and examples.

Just had an Ooooby enquiry about untreated macrocarpa for raised garden beds that is available from my family farm, so here are the details again for anyone else that may be interested, for those noooobies, we created a resource list on the discussion forum, click View All above and you can access all the resources people previously posted. Perhaps members have some new resources to add?

Morning! just moved to Auckland... in the Te Atatu Peninsula area... would like to meet other gardeners! I am wanting to learn about what to plant, where to plant and other tips for this climate. :) which I anticipate will be different than the desert gardening that I'm used too... :)
