Kaeo - volunteers/helpers for our two community gardens

We have two community gardens in Kaeo and are always grateful for help. Both gardens are producing food and there is always some goodies to take home. Our gardens: Mangamanihi road - our gardening time is Fridays from 3pm til 5pm (this has also a food forest surrounding with loads of fruit trees!) Pupuke- te huia marae road- we garden on Saturdats from 10am til 12pm Both gardens are quite different and have a huge potential to feed us (and you) and the community!

Requesting jars for preserving

Kia ora, I'm on the look out for jars and their good condition lids suitable to reuse for preserving. Eg: jam jars, pickles etc. Not keen on any that still smell of what used to be in them. If you have a well intended box of jars put aside but no longer need them for yourself, I'd be interested 😉 Kerikeri/kaeo area
