We're so grateful to the fantastic team at Ecosa NZ who have recently donated their 1000th mattress to our Family Stores!
Their foam mattresses come with a 100-day trial and money back guarantee, so if customers find the mattress isn't what they like, they can send it back to Ecosa and Ecosa donates them to us. The mattress sales raise funds for our much-needed services in each community and give Family Store customers the opportunity to purchase a near new, high-quality mattress at a significantly discounted price.
Our gardens are getting smaller, so NZ Gardener wants to come up with some suggestions for edible crops that do well in pots and small spaces! Suggest the crops that have done well for you (ideally specify a variety) and tell other keen gardeners how you grew them, how they performed for you, and any practical advice you would pass on to ensure a great result with that crop, and any secret tips you are prepared to pass on! If your tip is used in the magazine, you'll receive a free copy... And of course the glory of being in New Zealand's favourite gardening magazine! Click on the link to send us your best tips.
We’re helping women take that first step into the trades. Women who have the right kinds of strengths for the trades. Mental strength, determination, endurance, perseverance. Strengths that many women with life experience have.
If you’re thinking of changing career or returning to work, register for The BCITO & Mitre 10 Building Women Night.
You’ll get to chat to women apprentices paving the way, talk to BCITO people about the 15 different trade qualifications, meet employers about future opportunities, or have a crack on the tools for a taste of the trades.

We love seeing Neighbourly members mentioned in the news - and we've seen a few in the last few months. From a Neighbourly group that has united the masses right through to a neighbourhood who rallied to deliver a 250kg piano to two blind sisters - there is a lot of good going on in Neighbourly communities around the country. You can read about them right here in our latest blog post.
