Have plenty of calendula seeding at the moment. If you feel the 'need for some seeds' - let me know, and I will harvest and dry some for you.

I have spare honey (it's a light floral honey) will swap for veges or possibly vege seedlings - inspire me. I'm in Beach Haven, Auckland.

Good news, I have eggs, but you call late in the season.

I will see what I can do for you.

By the way, I am expecting you to come to my house on 11 June 2011 at 1030.

WE are going to hav a "working bee".  A working bee is a group of people that work together.

I believe that if people work together, is easier for everybody who joins to make it easier for maintenance.

On 11 6 11 we work in my house, we set up something that later on will be easier for me. But you can ask the same, or you can use that time to go to a community garden, school, etc
