Hi there

IMG_0192.jpg

Hi Scarlett

Did you know that your YouthGrow Garden Centre purchase at the market helps young Dunedin people develop employment skills? Everything you see on their stand has been sown, propagated, potted up and lovingly tended by youth undertaking workplace experience in their garden centre nursery in north Dunedin.

YouthGrow are also partners with us in our Waste Minimisation strategy. Every week they take the compostable materials we have collected at the market and turn it into worm filled compost to use in the nursery. Without them providing this service we would be unable to divert this waste from landfill.

For our Waste Less Living day on 16th September we will be taking some of YouthGrow’s compost made from our compostables, mixing it with spent coffee grinds and planting up vegetable seedlings in used coffee cups. Talk about full circle! These you can just pop in the garden , pot and all, and viola, grow something edible. Bring your kids or grandkids down to share in the wonder of spring growth.

So thanks very much YouthGrow and all the young people that work at the nursery for helping us minimise our waste. You will find them up on the platform, next to Perk Up Espresso, with a great range of edible and ornamental seedlings for sale.

See you Saturday

Kate

Kiwi As, a farewell

IMG_20170211_074259.jpg

As we embrace the start of Spring, Kiwi As is sad to say they will be
finishing at the market next weekend the 16th September. After 11 years of
markets around the country and a lot of juggling with a young daughter over
the last 5 years, its time to bring some balance back into life.  I have
loved being a part of the market as a vendor and have been overwhelmed by
the wonderful support from my lovely customers.  I will certainly continue
to be a customer as I have been for the last 12 years so no doubt I will
bump into you from time to time.
 
Look out for some specials over the next couple of weeks as I clear the
balance of my ingredients and stock.
 
Many thanks Kereen, Mark & Lucabella
