Seedling Exchange

A new, informal group started at our February 2009 meeting of people who want to swap spare seedlings from their own gardens. The aim is to save some money, share some knowledge and gain some biodiversity!

If you are interested in this please contact Alice on 3764623 or alice@angelfood.co.nz

Seed exchanges are springing up around New Zealand, the Te Kakano Trust is based in Wanaka and has achieved a lot since it was formed in September 2008. Their aim is to ‘ establish a community-based native plant nursery specialising in propagating plants of local origin for the restoration of habitats in the Upper Clutha Basin”.

Here in Grey Lynn many of us have gardens that once successful can be very productive. Please bring any seedlings that you don’t need to our monthly meeting. There is sure to be somebody who will be happy to receive them.
