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!

Maybe some of you watched the Seven Sharp program about bees "pooing" on someones windows? in Whangaparoea....is this what the world has come to? Did you know that bees are absolutely essential to pollination and keeping us alive? But some people just don't care except about there dirty windows....here's an idea....spray something on your glass to make it easier to clean....don't blame the bees OR the beekeepers.....we are all so self absorbed with our LITTLE worlds that we don't look at the big picture...dirty windows...beautiful bees...HONEY!!!!
Hi neighbours. A grove of pōhutukawa trees that were to be axed to make way for new classrooms have been saved from the chop following local outcry.
The Ministry of Education planned to fell the trees – five pōhutukawa and one Norfolk pine – at Campbells Bay School in Auckland early this year.
The plans prompted parents and local residents to launch a petition calling for the trees to be saved, and instead design a building which preserves them.
But this month, the Ministry of Education has shared new plans for the classroom block.
It will be set back an additional 4.5 metres from the school’s fence on Aberdeen Rd, meaning the six trees will remain, with some limited root reduction and canopy trimming.
Join our lovely group of locals and newcomers for a morning of sharing, conversing and learning at our local Community House.
We often host a guest speaker or share a recipe!
This group runs during School Terms only. All info on poster!
