Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Have-a-go at bagpipes and drumming

Kerry Marshall from Napier Pipe Band Inc

Ever wanted to have a go at pipe band drumming or playing the bagpipes? Organisers of the national pipe band championships are providing an opportunity for youngsters to “Have-a-Go” at bagpipes and drums. The Have-a-Go tent will be operating on the morning of Saturday 20 March at the National Pipe Band Championships. Youngsters who would like to know more about bagpiping and pipe band drumming can talk to people and beat a drum, blow a chanter or raise a mace. Playing drums and bagpipes in a pipe band is a great experience for youngsters and this year’s contest features a record number of entries in the juvenile competition. The contest is being staged at Mitre10 Park, Percival Road, Hastings - entry to the park will be by gold coin donation. The competition starts at 9am on Friday 19th and continues until late afternoon Saturday 20th. More details are on the contest website nzpbchamps.nz
