The Skills/Swap/Barter Thread

Hi All,

My name is Anthony.

Myself, partner Charlotte, Sister Kay and Brother in law Tony have just moved into the area.

Charlotte and I attended the artist/produce meeting last Tuesday. It was suggested we use this forum to share, swap and barter our skills/produce, or whatever. it was also suggested this forum was a place to start the sharing process!

So I have started this thread in an effort to do so. I'm thinking as people add their skill sets in I can copy and paste in the post below so all the info is in one handy place for people to find/copy/paste/print.

Cheers

Anthony

Hi Anthony, welcome to Karamea.

Computer support skills are really needed and welcome here, I am sure there is be plenty of work for you.

It may be good to place an advert in the online Notice Board at http://karamea.org.nz/notice_board and also at the Four Square and Information Centre notice boards to get the word out.

Cheers,
Radek

Re: The Skills/Swap/Barter Thread

We often have fresh produce from our largish vege gaden and need computer skills at times. Will keep in touch on that one. I have a range of chainsaw skills, including tree felling and windfall experience. dont own a particularly big saw but can use one if sourced. Plenty of things we would trade for, particularly meat, timber, fruit.

Hi and thanks Anthony for starting the thread..

We're just along the South Terrace from you, still in set up phase finishing off a barn and planning permaculture systems for food, livestock etc.

Interested in labour exchange, swapping produce, seeeds, plants, tools, timber, building resources, advice, 

Like many here we have heaps of skills and not many liquid assets ($$): permaculture, cooking, building, arc welding, project/event organisation, childcare, teaching, alternative currencies

You'll find us making manuka fired pizzas at the Bush Lounge whenever there's a gig on :)

Also interested in a 'Karamea Made' brand which down the line may be useful for us when we'e producing more (food/craft) - don't currently have the time to develop this but would support those who do.

Hi Sacha,

Thanks for your input and wonderful skill sets! I have added them to the master list. I'm thinking it is a good idea to add in your contact details, either email address or phone number. Reason being I'm hoping this list will start to get printed and when the bush telegraph kicks in and your skills are required - people can contact you outside the internet. My one, two, five, ten cents worth!

Love this idea having seen the freecycle set up in Bristol, in the Uk and have often thought it may be a way forward for karamea.

I am a qualified TEFL teacher with over 20 years experience, I teach yoga here in Karamea and Little Wanganui and can offer private sessions including aerial yoga as well as rehabilitative sessions in return for fesh produce (not veggies or fruit which I have in abundance) I have taken the permaculture design course and follow permaculture principles in my garden and can advise accordingly. Have previously been a lifeline counsellor as well as studying psychotherapy. Can offer teaching, yoga, baking, seamstress and gardening skills in addition to listening and counselling.

Many thanks. Contact details - phone 7826087.

Hi all

This is very exciting to see this happening and for the website to be used in such a way. Congrats to Anthony for taking the lead.

I'm not really in a position to be offering much of giving or taking at the moment but want to express my support. Anthony, if you want to come and say gidday that would be nice. We are flatlanders at the bottom of the South Terrace and we make organic tea tree oil. But give me a call first as it doesn't always suit to visit.

Hi Anthony. Good job on the thread. I was approached by the school recently who needed IT advice, of which I have some knowledge, but reached a point where I thought of you and your skills. In my view, they need a network that can carry all of their licensed software. If that sounds like something you can do I'm sure the'y love to hear from you. It's best to call in and catch up with Sylvia. Lunchtimes are best, between 12.50 and 1.30.

No doubt I'll catch up with you along the way

Brendan
