Grow an extra row


While some Kiwis are enjoying home grown vegies, many are going without vegetables altogether.

This National Gardening Week we’re encouraging gardeners to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.

To help get your extra row underway Yates is lending a helping hand.

Just register online HERE between 1st and 25th October to receive a FREE packet of Yates Vegie Seeds.

Once you’ve grown your vegies to share (or if you have spare now) please visit HERE to find a list of the organisations that would welcome your donation of fresh homegrown vegies.

Please help to ask www.refresh.co.nz to remove its property renovation billboard from the front fence of my property at 20 Regia Close, Half Moon Bay, Auckland - Qiubo Su

Qiubo (David) from Half Moon Bay

Hi Neighborly members,

(update - on the evening of 28th Nov, I checked that end of my fence, that billboard was gone, which is good, otherwise people will be confused that there were some property renovation activities underway for my property. this billboard could be for these two neighbors of mine, but it doesn't look like, as there should be some noises from their places if they were renovating their own properties, but it had been quiet in their places during this period (except of that sometimes those neighbors willfully made some hammer, chainsaw noises in their own places by themselves, but this was definitely not made by this company), and there was no mess there and in the public areas in this street, so it doesn't make any sense this company should post a billboard here. I think they posted this billboard on the end of my fence to confuse people that there were some property renovation activities underway for my property, which is misleading, the evil intention, so my comments about their behavior are quite fair and correct. It is very likely that this billboard was posted there by this company, it doesn't seem to be done by other people without the involvement from this company. If that's the case, it is very likely that this company came to remove this billboard on their own, or by other people, e.g. one of the neighbors in my street removed this billboard after I published this post here. Anyway it doesn't matter who removed this billboard, as long as the people won't be misled any more. Without my permission, their behavior is definitely illegal to post that billboard on the fence only belonging to my property. I have no plan to improve the status of my property prior and post this Xmas & New Year period, as I have been independently working on the tasks of developing my own ICT business and products, as stated in my website www.cloudtelephony.win... hosted at my home office. The task I have been working on alone recently is to upgrade, migrate everything around the web hosting and web systems I alone developed within two months at the end of 2010. When this upgrade and migration task is done, I will start working on the tuning, optimization and testing of the Drone DIY system I purchased in April 2021. The technology tasks are my high priority ones, not anything about my property, as my property has been in very good condition, no issue at all, and I have never planned to sell my property, so this billboard on my fence is totally misleading, with evil intentions. Working on my property is to make it better and better, increasing its long term investment value, and that's it.

Anyway thank you very much to remove that billboard from the fence of my property)

I move my post "Please help to ask www.refresh.co.nz... to remove its property renovation billboard from the front fence of my property at 20 Regia Close, Half Moon Bay, Auckland" to the website www.cloudtelephony.win... -> Misc hosted at my home office.

Just FYI.

Best regards,
