The Renaissance Aotearoa Foundation is placing an order for Bafang BBS01 ebike kits shortly. If you are interested in piggybacking on it, see http://slowcycles.com/index.php/buynz These 36v, NZ legal kits fit most standard bikes, do not require changing the hub or rim, and cost a lot less than an ebike. If you have a bike you are not using because the Waiheke hills are too tough, or the range too far, this may be the answer.

Hi Chris - do you still have plums? Mine are not quite ready yet, would love some, could stop by tomorrow.

Comment by Chris Hamilton on December 11, 2012 at 4:38pm

Please come get plums from our tree, it's absolutely laden. 64 Ocean Rd, Surfdale (just down from the SPCA). The number's on the letterbox, but ignore the other numbers in the street - they're not very sequential. We're the house on the bend with an old Puriri tree on the verge and a white daisy in front of the letterbox. Please knock on the door, but if there's noone home help yourself :) Bring lots of containers!!

Does anyone have any galangal or tumeric. Id like to try growing it in 1/2 wine barrels. I Have some lovely fresh Maunuka, lemon Verbena, Clary Sage, Rosemary, or Lime Hydrosol I can swap.

Distillation, Creams, Balms, Lotions, Bath products. helen from Herbal Health Waiheke join for a fun day distilling essential oils and hydrosols, making creams and lotions, adding the oils and hydrosols fresh from the still! Take home all that you make. A day of transformation, fun, aroma and more understanding what we can do with the precious herbs, spices and flowers that grow so generously under foot! http://www.alembics.co.nz/workshops

have quite a few loquat seedlings if anyone wants any before they are weeded out. also one larger one.  my tree produces quite big fruit (everyone remarks on it) - not sure if because they are fertilised or the tree was a named variety (deliberately planted, but before me). fruit  really needs to be netted to protect from birds so you can properly tree ripen it for how they are supposed to taste - delicious!
