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!

My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
Nelson City Council has obviously decided that sea level rise is less of a problem than it was, as they have removed my house inundation notice from the LIM report that they issued last November. They were using a 2m rise for all their planning. However it has dropped to 1.5m.
I rather think this has more to do in wanting to push through a $44M state of the art, "better than Te Papa", Vanity, Eco Building Project on the river front, creating lots of waste and using "mitigation" to stop the sea coming in, rather than hoping the sea will stop rising!
~UPDATE~ THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDED, WOW, SUCH LOVELY PEOPLE!
I THINK I HAVE ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS AT THE MOMENT, BUT FEEL FREE TO BE IN TOUCH AS BACK-UPS MAY BE NEEDED IF ANY OF THESE CASES FALL THROUGH FOR WHATEVER REASON.
Hi all – As some of you may know, I’m studying naturopathy and nutrition, and this semester I need to find 5 clients for clinical practice assessments. This will require volunteers to fill out an extensive health history and undergo a 60-90 minute consultation with me. In exchange, I am happy to offer each volunteer a free full consultation once I am practicing next year (💃woohoo!) But for now, I’ll be looking for:
• 3 people here in the Nelson area for face-to-face consults -one with a digestive issue.
• 1 person taking at least 2 prescription or over-the-counter medications –online consult is fine.
• 1 person with a chronic condition (such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, dysmenorrhea, benign prostatic hyperplasia, etc.) -online consult is fine with this case as well.
Feel free to pass this along or tag someone you think might be interested💚I need all the help I can get spreading the word, especially for the in-person consults as I’ve recently relocated to Nelson and don’t have a lot of contacts here yet😅…thanks all!
