Hey neighbours, how are you finding life in lockdown? If you're looking for new ways to mix things up at home and in the garden, we can help!
Join us for a virtual lunch from 12.30 on Wednesday (8 April), when NZ House & Garden and NZ Gardener editors Naomi Larkin and Jo McCarroll will be live on Homed to answer your questions, share their expertise and chat about your latest projects.
From repurposing items you already have to create a stylish new interior, to getting a steer on what you can sow and grow in the garden right now, here's your chance to get help and advice from those in the know.
And if you've already finished some home and garden projects during lockdown, don't be shy... show us what you've done. We'd love to see them! Click here and get in early to submit your questions and join in the fun. You can also email photos of your projects to: email@example.com.
This came to me this morning and I thought it may be helpful. What phase do you think you are in, and what actions do you need to take to move into the growth zone?
While Covid-19 might have put the country in lockdown for now, Destination Marlborough has come up with a new campaign to support businesses and celebrate our backyard.
The campaign, Marlborough's Brilliant Backyard, is kicking off with a quiz updated on Marlborough's main tourism website, marlboroughnz.com, every Tuesday and Thursday.
Each quiz asks four questions that can be answered through information that can be found "somewhere" on the website, and everyone who completes the quiz goes into the draw for a prize.
Tuesday's prize is a dining experience and wine match for two at Arbour, valued at $362.
