“Our green roadie” Auckland Premiere movie at Birkenhead Library, Auckland North Shore

Emma Heke and her son Connor (age 7) travelled the country in a tiny van, on a shoestring budget to showcase the 'can do' attitudes of people living their dreams for a better world.

Hello Diane SQ and "Welcome" to the Funk & Flash From Junk & Trash group.

Hi Diane-glad that my first few contacts didn't involve hate mail from vegans! haha! keen to get this aspect of ooooby rolling although some of the larger items might take a bit of organising. I usually stand in front of that department in a frothing rage at the price they charge for the quality offered and im sure im not alone! anyway, ill keep in touch and when we have a few of us to make it worthwhile ill get the ball rolling. As for the smaller stuff, its pretty easy to get and process so yell out if you are curious

Thanks for your comment re Rainbow Valley farms. I have checked out their website and the farm is for sale! Do you have contact details for Dion, as I can't find anything on the website.

Thanks Debbie, Sigrid is going to be on holiday until school starts again, but I will go back to Sudesh's garden, haven't decided when exactly but will let you know. Happy holidays

Hi Diana,
the twilight market was great. Sudesh sold more than me! Excellent! Usha, her husband and Ulrich were also there.

We are now thinking of doing the Northtec Certificate in Sustainable Rural Development (Level 3), which will take place every Thur+Fri from Feb-June 2010 in Riverhead.

Sorry I will not be able to make it on Tuesday. But will be at Sudesh's Monday, tomorrow, instead. Don't know whether you want to come Monday or Tuesday.

Cheers
Sigrid
