This year's event runs from March 20 - 30th with the theme being 'The Great Plant Swap' as an easy way for neighbourhoods to grow stronger together.

Here's some ideas for ways you could get involved:

• swap seeds with a neighbour
• gift a plant you've grown to a neighbour
• take some flowers to a neighbour
• organise a produce swap
• share garden tips or recipes for food in season
• create community gardens or berm pollinator pathways
• host an inclusive garden-themed working bee
• a friendly neighbourhood BBQ with homegrown ingredients

The options are endless! At the end of the day, our shared aim is to help bring people together by encouraging intentional connection with our neighbours. Whether that be organising a street party, sharing a cuppa, or simply saying ‘Kia Ora!” to those who live around you, every action helps to create a safer and more connected New Zealand.

Hi Auckland neighbours,

Great news! Auckland is now in alert level 2.
The rest of the country has shifted to alert level 1.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
Georgia Forrester

There are three community cases, two siblings who are students at Papatoetoe High School, and their household contact.

There was also one new case in MIQ on Wednesday.

Schools in Auckland can reopen. But Papatoetoe High School will remain closed for the rest of the week.

Teachers and students from that school must return a negative test before returning next week.

Covid-19 alert level 3 took effect in Auckland at 11.59pm on Sunday

The Government is making it easier for businesses to get one of its support measures - if current alert levels are extended.

People identified as contacts or who were at the locations of interest are being asked to get tested.

Written by April Phillips

“Death & Taxes” is a madcap financial farce set in the very topical world of insurance and investments. It’s a crime story, ghost story and hilarious comedy. Featuring dodgy deals, a potty psychic, a fishy tax inspector, a nutty cop, murder, mayhem and a hairy yak!

Gareth Burke, Destiny Life’s top agent for 3 years in a row, wants to win the trip to Hawaii and take gorgeous receptionist Tiffany with him. But Lucille Potts is determined to be the first female agent to top the sales figures and has a plan to ensure victory. Before he can take the prize, Gareth must overcome the obstacles in his path - an over-bearing wife, a manic-depressive corporate motivator, the police, the Inland Revenue, and even his own untimely death.

Hi neighbours,

How have you been passing the time during lockdown?

With Auckland back in Level 3, most of us are back working from the kitchen table, juggling work, school and childcare - simultaneously for some.

Last year, Stuff reported on the great array of hobbies New Zealanders picked up during the lockdown, such as home workouts and learning a few new cooking hacks. PC gaming also proved popular with Google search trends for March 2020 showing a 400 per cent search increase for the term.

What are you going to be up to during Level 3? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Central Leader.

At Alert Level 1, there is still a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community. We encourage you to continue tracking where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help with contact tracing, if required.

COVID-19 is contained at Alert Level 1, but it’s still worthwhile to keep a safe distance from people you don’t know while out and about. This will help to minimise the spread of COVID-19 if community transmission returns.
