Yup thats me ;)
Yeah I think that our media need all the encouragement and support that they can get to focus more positively. Media has a profound effect, and if we get more positive coverage, then we will also get more positive people in our community.

Thankyou for your comment Gayleen. I am enjoying seeing all these like minded folk and their gardens,and especially living locally.
Kind regards,

Yes, thanks for that, I had a great time with my older boy planting trees - well, he ate sausages more than planted, but it was a great day.

Wonderful, thanks. That email address you gave me for Jenny Tanner didnt work unfortunately though.

Hi Gayleen, thanks for your note. Yes I am becoming quite a keen gardener after moving to Waitakere Township! Sowing all my summer crops at the moment, so will have excess if anyone wants seedlings!!

Not involved in neighbourhood support, but would love to be. I dont even know where to start - community mindedness is not something I learnt unfortunately, but I am trying to right that situation now.

I must walk past their house quite often. My oldest son is enrolled in the kindy, waiting to start any day now :)

Hi Gayleen, Thanks for your welcome. Look forward to meeting members of your group. Still learning how to navigate the whole communication thing on the computer so forgive me if I appear not to answer or know where to go at times. I am a medical herbalist and in the process of establishing a medicinal herb nursery so if there are people out there who want to grow herbs I may be able to help. :-). I will have extra punnetts of lettuce and brocoli to trade in a few weeks as I have sown more than I can plant.

Thats awesome, thank you for that. We are on Alidade Place, off Aldern Rd, off Don Buck by the primary school.

Hi Gayleenm, As a fellow Massey, Waitakere I just wanted to say hi. What part of Massey are you in? Im wanting to organise something to clean up a local creek and dont even know where to start...

Kia Ora Gayleen. Not sure what you want to know from me re Rongoa - if it's re plants its very basic and there is info on the net - indeed I'm more interested in learning more about the nutrient composition of rongoa myself.

Working at Waitakere Hospital as a social worker. I have never worked in health before so that is a newish experience. I would love to spend 7 days in my garden at the moment but that is a futuristic dream for now.

Gayleen, I could bring some kefir to the garden visit at Daniel's place if that would suit. Your profile says 'beginning gardener' but you sure grow a lot of veges for a beginner, and herbs etc. Working full time and studying: when do you have time for the garden? Are you studying in the area of early childhood or a different subject alltogether? Hope you are able to enjoy the beautiful weather!

Yes of course. You will enjoy it!

Hi Gayleen
I just admired the photos of your garden. Looks like a very fertile and well utilised plot.
Nice to see a famiar face on friday night. I really enjoyed the discussion and have started thinking thoughts that could lead to big changes ones day....
Too soon maybe. I'll just stick to the garden I have at the moment which uses up a lot of my energy and time.
I'd be happy to shared my kefir grains with you Gayleen. Not sure when I will see you next but I always have enough to share with one other person. There is an article about Kefir in the NZ Organics magazine of December 2008, which is available from the libaray.

Fantastic, I am going to focus on marae, community centres, churches and peoples back yards. There can never be too many fruit trees in my op!

Hiya, thanks! Yes I find waiting for politicians govt agencies etc kinda futile, I just decided that there are no excuses for creating health based sustainable urban agriculture. Its our children and their children that dont even stand a chance at this rate!

The earth oven is reasonably safe as the fire is inside the oven with an open door that is closed when the oven is hot enough. The oven itself is made of cob (clay earth straw and sand), which is fire proof. Some people have these inside their home. And safety is important, meaning ready access to water and a reasonable distance, say 5 meters, from anything flameable. Let me know when you are ready to build and I would be delighted to help, Matt.
