I would really enjoy having an epal from this site. Someone who loves to garden and loves to preserve what they grow.

I have a small farm of 13 acres in New Zealand but am originally from Ontario.

Hi Katherine-love to be your epal! It would be really interesting to get a sense of what it is like to garden in NZ. My email is on my website, let's talk!
