Hi Jennifer. I'm not sure what the postage would be but I imagine it would be no more than $30NZD. If it is I'll make up the difference. Probably best to put separate orders in for each shirt. Sorry for the hassle, just building the systems as I go.
That is a great photo of you. My ooooby group has been very successful. We meet regularly and share tips, ideas, seedling, home made fertilizers. Now we are starting to tour eachother's gardens. Lots of fun!
hi did u find the link to add friends? if not its just under your picture and personal info it should say "add as friend" or "remove as friend".
So how are you doing? spring has sprung over there now. You must be excited to get some more plants in the ground!? My spinach has done so well, but its starting to get frosty here now so i have to figure out what to do next. Unfortunately i had my broccoli in from last spring and it got decimated by little green caterpillars!! Lesson learned its better to put that in at this time of the year instead(autumn). Have to admit im getting a little slack now. Really should be doing more out there in the garden, have to keep the enthusiasm up after the spring/summer growing excitement subsides! Catch ya later.
Thats fantastic! You must be very proud of her! i was just watching a programme about the same sort of initiative in havana, Cuba the other day! Incidently, I also decided last night that i would go back to school and retrain in the horticulture/agri/botanical field, havent narrowed it down quite yet! So the article has really inspired me! Thank you for sending that, everything happens for a reason right?
Anyway in answer to your question- my husband, 14mnth old and i moved here about 8 mnths ago in search of a"better life". We were both teachers in the boston area, commuting 45 mins each way, every day, and living with my in-laws to save money for the house we couldnt afford!
On a whim we decided NZ looked like it could offer us the type of lifestyle we were after, and off we went! crazy/brave- u decide! So we now live in a tiny rural community in the Wairarapa called Eketahuna, about 2 hrs north of Wellington. We've been able to buy our own house and im able to stay home with my now 2 yr old, fixing up the house and developing our fledging garden. We're extremely happy with the move and its given us a huge shift in perspective regarding whats really important in life. New Zealand is a wonderful place and reminds me alot of my homeland Ireland- friendly open people who will quite often go out of their way to help you.
I will be sure to check out the Ecomatters trust, thank you so much for the article and for replying so quickly. please feel free to keep me updated with your step daughters progress.
