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.

$3,500 or near offer.

169,500km, automatic transmission, 1498cc petrol engine.

Good condition with some small paint scuffs. Transmission replaced a year ago, tyres replaced, and recently serviced. I upgraded the stereo when I bought it.

Great small car that can fit a lot more in it than you'd think! The extra boot storage has been really useful. I've used it for around town but have also done longer road trips and it's been reliable, comfortable to drive, and very economical on petrol.

All and all it's been a great car, but with a growing family and dog it's time for something bigger.

Price: $3,500
