Hāwera: Learn to make preserves including for diabetics

For many years I have made pickles and bottled fruit for diabetics. Let me show you how to make sugar-free preserves that taste wonderful. You choose what you want to learn, purchase the ingredients and I'll come to your place and work with you to make the preserves.  I can also show you how to make non-diabetic preserves too. I prefer day time, mornings are easier.  Linda.

Do you need worms to start a worm-farm?

I can also give you instructions on setting up your worm farm to work well. 1/2 hour for a container, more if you want to chat/design a worm farm of your own.  Michelle

Interior Decorating on a Budget

I was professionally trained as a colour consultant and I love decorating interiors, based on the knowledge of the colour wheel and how colours interact with each other. I just love decorating and would love to help others. I moved to Rangiora 5 years ago, decorated my own home, and now have moved to another home in Pegasus which is a work-in-progress but it is coming along nicely. The colour schemes are based on a big paintings I have. I have saved costs on furnishings by recycling, repainting and buying second-hand. Colour, design and lighting should all work together. They highlight and complement each other. I believe in expressing yourself and your family and having the things you love around you, which may result in a very individual style; not necessarily a cookie-cutter modern style. It does not need to be static either. It can evolve as your family grows and develops and your lifestyle requirements change. So call me and we can have some fun exchanging ideas about colouring and decorating your home. Michelle

Online or Hāwera: Papakāinga Planning 101

Are your whānau curious or very interested in exploring setting up a papakāinga? Or have you heard of papakāinga but don't really know what's involved, and would like to learn more?  My whānau developed a papakāinga near Hāwera and have been living there the past 12 years. We are just embarking on a journey of renovation and potentially adding more kainga at our settlement. I'm chair of our whānau trust and very involved in coordination of our whānau activities. I recently attended the National Māori Housing Conference and learned a lot about what assistance is out there for whānau embarking on developing their papakāinga. There is more assistance available than first appears. Let me share tips so you can learn from my/our lessons over the years. Can do online or in person here in South Taranaki. If my whānau agree, I might be able to arrange a site visit. Maybe you are not interested in developing a papakāinga, but would like to know more, cool - happy to share my experience and if I can persuade my whānau, there is a chance there could be a possible site visit.
