  • Hi everyone, I am on the hunt for surplus lemons, oranges, limes and elder flowers. I don't want to take that which you can use, but if you have or know of anyone who has any of these that are not being made full use of, I would LOVE any surplus. I am happy to a) make arrangements to come and pick or collect and b) to share something of what I make with this produce as a token of thanks. I am on a limited budget and cannot afford the amount of fruit it takes to make healthy, nutritious cordials and preserves for me and my son, but I am all for sharing some of what I make. Please just message me if you have any of these that I can organise to have as much of an ongoing supply as possible. I also have plenty of seed to swap if that's what you prefer, and herb plants.

  • Hi everyone,
    I'm looking for some artificial grass in good condition for my elderly mother. She is 90 years young and grows a small organic garden outside her pensioner flat in Waipukurau. She needs a length of about 3 metres -preferably in one piece but smaller bits would be better than nothing. She doesn't have a car but we can arrange for someone to pick it up for her. I'm happy to pay something for it. She also needs some suitable mulch.

December Oooobymeet?

Hi all. We haven't organised an Oooobymeet for December. I seem to remember when we talked about it in October we assumed December would be too busy for most people. However if people can't wait until January we could probably organise a get-together at short notice. If anyone definitely wants to meet this month and has a date in mind, please post your response on this discussion. There will definitely be a get-together in January. Maybe we should make it earlier in the month, to compensate, if…

SWAP-Pots for Plants

I'm running out of pots for my 100+ tomato plants, peppers, eggplants etc. If anyone has any larger sized plastic pots they want to get rid of (the sort you buy perennials and shrubs in) I'd love to take them off your hands or out of your shed or wherever they are that you don't want them to be! Happy to swap for some of the afore-mentioned plants or lemons or tangeloes. I've got heaps of punnets-don't need any more of THEM, thanks.
