Buying Local Food, Offering Land for Gardeners
Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
After a total disaster trying to grow veges a few years ago, I have not had the urge to do gardening (apart from pottering) until recently when I started rhubarb plants and capsicum plants.

I woudl love help, and I can offer garden area for someone in return for some shared gardening, I can also barter some special things for fresh fruit and veges.

unusual barter

hello, we would like to eat healthy home grown veges and fruit.


We would offer a part of our garden to someone who doesnt have land for sharing a part of what is grown.


AND / OR   we would offer a night or two at our holiday home for supplies of fresh vegetables.... .

Great talking to you.

Just had a thought in the garden. have you tried the Insurance Ombudsman with your problem? http://www.iombudsman.org.nz/

I see have I have plenty of seedlings in the bark, even a gooseberry. The yellow kind. Will start potting them up for you. They will supplement anything your son buys you.

I can tell you what I am doing and how it is going if you like call me on 521 3856.

I usually give my excess to the neighbors as I live alone, or take whatever is ready to friends who I know will be able to use them.

I cook and freeze a lot of fruit from the trees and yesterday I defrosted the remaining plums from last season and made them into jam. I make jelly a lot from backyard fruit.

Give me a call.
