Great to meet you Emma. Do you have an Out of our own backyard group in Takaka. We have one in Tauranga and it sounds like your Community Stall we meet though in a members garden once per month and share produce and ideas and even have working bees. Go well with your spring planting. If feels like an early spring up here, my peach tree has blossom already!
