The Kerikeri Crop Swap is on the 2nd and 4th Saturday each month at Māra Tui at Kerikeri Organic, 3pm-4:30pm. It's a wonderful gathering of generous people keen to share from their gardens, it's open to anyone and operates as a koha economy - we all walk away with fruit, vegetables and plants depending what's been shared.
There are lots of ways you can help, and earn timecredits from Transition Towns Bay of Islands-Whangaroa...
Our facilitators need an extra pair of hands or two to help with the set up and to tidy up afterwards. If you are already a crop swapper or are keen to check it out. Come along and offer to lend a hand. Roughly 2 hours twice a month.
Helping hands are also wanted for the working bee on Saturday afternoon. (And on every 2nd Saturday of the month) This community garden is still being set up as a lovely meeting, learning, sharing and growing space. We need help with: weeding, sign making, potting, tidying etc. Working Bees are 1:30pm - 2:45pm (exchange 1.5 hours timebank credits) Also happy for you to stay longer and get more done!
We are looking for someone to do regular potting up of plants and cuttings in the Māra Tui, Kerikeri Organic. Once a week for a couple of hours, whenever it suits you would be ideal. Everything provided, just need some helping hands. Someone who can work independently or with a friend. We have pots, potting mix, seeds and various plants that need propagating. We would love to get a little nursery established. Get in touch if this is you!
Call, email or text Asha or just turn up on the day!
