A charitable trust delivering free or low cost services with paid staff and volunteers. Booking is essential.

Volunteers with experience in household management, raising a family, gardening and general practical skills. They pass on skills and gift their time to help people achieve their goals in everyday life skills. They come from diverse backgrounds (and not all are grans!).

Small ratio cooking workshops teach low budget healthy meals and are individually designed for groups in the community. We can provide the venue or come to your place. Each session concludes with a shared meal (Covid 19 restrictions permitting). Our knitting, crochet and sewing workshops are run at the premises. These have small numbers with all equipment provided. Also involved in a number of projects in the community including partnerships with Mokopuna Ora (sewing wahakura bedding and blankets) and Community Fruit Harvest (preserving surplus produce). We also edge merino wraps for the Palmerston North Hospital delivery suite and knit woollen garments for the community.
