At last a Washing Machine!

After going without for about 3 years, my good neighbour gave me a washing machine, It doesn't work yet, but I think I can fix it. The first job though, is to build a new Laundry as my old one is storing a couple of arm chairs, the hens are laying eggs in them and I don't want to disturb a happy routine..

Hey Jacob:-) I must post some updated photos, my garden is Evolving!! :-) Yes the rat was stunned from poison and wondering around early morning on the front porch, to our cat's delight! My Tamarilo's are HUGE, if the bugs etc don't kill them first it's looking like a bumper crop next season:-) How is your spring garden?

Hi Jacob, would you be interested in attending this Saturday for the Raw workshop? We've received an amazing response, and a little community of raw foodist's will surely develop out of this. We have space for you, if you would like to contact me on 6640 so I can forward you all the details.

Hi Jacob,

Did you get my message on Oooby the other day about the Raw Vegan pot luck this Saturday in Howick. I sent a link for you to click on and join a new group of Raw Vegans. I'm likely to go if you'd like a ride? my phone number is Ak 815 7366.

Hi! yes we are all about building the support network in adopting and sharing the ALL-RAW life..the upcoming workshop, just posted, should be a great connecting point for us all- and from this we hope to start a monthly dinner- as Kat mentioned, rotating around the households who are keen to participate. Will keep you posted on that. Hope you can make the workshop- Linda will be facilitating and has an extensive background in RAW cuisine. We'll encourage people to bring from their back yards, to create Green smoothies and other delights using what we are already growing. Yipeee!
