    A Whakatane woman has set up a website, http://www.homegrownmarket.co.nz, for listing locally produced goods surplus to one’s needs.

    The idea is simple.

    Find people within the community who can offer things that you require. It could be the place where you trade your surplus backyard fruit and veges, or sell your homemade produce. Or perhaps you produce arts and crafts….. As long as it’s made locally, you can list it on the directory, free. See it as an online noticeboard!

    This is a great place to list milkweed or lack of it.

    There is fantastic potential for this initiative spreading nationwide. Try it out and see how many people you can get trading goods locally!

    You need to register but it’s free. At the moment there are not many people putting goods on, but I am sure that that will grow – it has only just been launched.

    It’s for things you want to buy and sell and give away – but all home grown things (fruit vegetables etc). Great place to list swan plant(s) or stinging nettle(s), for sale, give away or wanted.

    Is this for selling things or giving them? There is also freecycle which has branches in most bigger centres in New Zealand – I have given a lot of things away there but had never thought of milkweed – good idea.
