Welcome Siaosi, good to see you are coming back to gardening with a strong community aspect in mind. Hope you will manage to rememder or regain the knowledge on how to care for those essential staple food like kumara, potatoes, etc... A lot of us in the city, would benefit from coming in contact with someone like you, who has grown up with successful large scale community planting.
Regarding your garden in Auckland, I can show you how to build a hot compost pile, but then you may already now of a better weay to fertilize the land...
I am learning more and more about biodynamic gardening which is working with the moon, constellations, and plant based preparations, but I am also interested in the old traditional ways, which incorporate many of the biodyamic features.

Welcome to Ooooby, Siaosi, and thanks for your great introductory e-mail. You'll find many members of Ooooby were exposed to gardening early in their life and are only coming back to it now. After a while that industrial food starts to dull your palate and you seek out a better way, huh... Come and check out the Ooooby stall at the Grey Lynn farmers' market - amazing produce coming straight from people's gardens. You'll find almost any question or problem you want answered on this web site.

Re: preserving:
Ive recently started preserving lemons from my Mum and Dad's tree. Theyve been pickling for almost 2 weeks, apparently they need 3-4 weeks, so I'll let you know how they go in time...
