Weeding, seeding, transplanting, lots to do even in Winter! Happy to have multiple Timebankers over several days carrying out this work (you don't have to do all of it!). Let me know what you're able to do, standing to seed into trays, or cultivating with tools or hand weeding, lots of options.

Whangaroa- Kerikeri - Garden help at home

I'm after a little help in the garden at home please! There's always something to do, I've got established orchards and herbs, raised vege beds, a glasshouse with seedlings on a 17 acre property. After someone with a little strength for the heavy tasks I can't manage, and also knowledge about plants would be great. Helping with pruning and digging and tidying around the place.   Tuesdays and Thursdays in the mornings would be awesome, for a couple of hours. Please contact to discuss further.

Whangarei - Staple up reflective insulation barrier in crawlspaces

Hello, I have reflective barrier to help with insulation and moisture.  I was planning to do it myself, but I've had recent issues with my back.  I was going to do some in the attic crawlspace (this just needs to be laid out on top of the insulation.  The more time-consuming will be under the house to staple it up onto the floor joists.  This is hopefully going to reduce moisture issues and improve comfort.  Both are just uncomfortable and awkward in the best of times.  With having some back issues it feels impossible.

Whangarei - Native plants, seedlings, seeds, mulch, and planting for regenerating bush

Kia ora, This is an ongoing, longer request for support establishing part of a wildlife corridor between the Pukenui and Otaika forests. We are regenerating bush on our property in Maunu, situated between the two reserves. Our priority is converting ~4 hectares of kikuyu-infested paddock into native bush. We've started planting ourselves, but we are going to need help. The long-term plan is to get the property protected in perpetuity as a QEII trust to preserve as wildlife and native bush preserve. The first step is replacing the grass with native plantings. What we are looking for to help make this happen: *Plants - Particularly pioneer species like manuka, kanuka, large harakeke, cabbage trees, Pittosporum crassifolium/karo, whau, red mapou, makomako, lacebark, mahoe, five finger, etc. Do you have a flat of manuka or kanuka seedlings? That can help! Splitting or removing a native? Send it our way! We also have shady marshy areas of paddock which need reforesting. *Mulch - We'll need heaps of mulch to protect our new plantings. Do you know where to get some? Will you have some? Can you dump some here? Unfortunately we don't have a truck for pickup. *Planting - Assuming we can get the requisite plants and mulch, we'll need help getting them in the ground. This is primarily a wintertime activity. *Money? - We've reached out to lots of departments and organizations about grants and funds to get any plants or mulch. Almost everyone is tapped out, or waiting until they get new guidelines for funding next year. We've signed up for notifications for a lot. We've also put in inquiries with private companies that share costs.  Another option is crowd-funding through the community, but we're not currently pursuing that until we've run through the other choices. Thank you, J & E

Gardening help

I have a large garden and struggling to keep on top of the weeds etc. Unfortunately we live in Westerfield, 20kms out of Tinwald, which may put helpers off, but I can help with petrol costs and you will be rewarded with beautiful scenery and my fridge is always full with refreshments. I'm so desperate I will award double time credits.
