Hi again, Just went to a talk at IE produce in Takapuna.  Speaker JohnPearce who has been biodynamically growing for 31 plus years.  He talked about his animals, how his practices could really help the environment, including the bees, how his dream is to create a sustainable environment, which he has actually done on his 1000 acre farm in the Kaipara.  You can visit there I think and I am definitely going to make a time to go and see what he has created, anyone else interested, you can come up with me, is about an hour plus drive away. Look up

Hi Miranda.  You mentioned wanting to buy staw on the shore.  Try RD1 in Albany or Falloons in Kahikatea Flat rd, Dairy Flat.  Good luck.

Hi folks I've just joined Ooooby - North Shore. It's a rain filled day in Beach Haven. Luckly I got some vege seedlings planted out yesterday and a lot of mulching with straw.

I'm still battling with weeds that I didn't keep on top of over winter, so still a big job ahead of me.

Hi guys.  I have a website address you might be interested in about the Wall st sit in, in America, calling for real democracy,
social justice and anti-corruption.
.  There is an online petition going around and you can see whats happening in the park at Wall St via live video link, it is amazing.You can sign the petition, now up to over 434,000 worldwide signatures and read and add your own comments.  I think this is the link, not sure about the underscores or whether they are just gaps... http://www/  Fi.

Yep, that is a good day for me - no horse shows.  See you then.  Sorry I forgot about the peach trees and the wandering jew.  Everytime I remembered I was on my way to somewhere else.  I gotta slow down.  Now i'm in the garden getting all those lovely veges planted.  I put in winter spuds and murray (husband) warned me they would just rot, well I had a very poor crop of them in numbers so won't be doing that again in a hurry.  I can't wait for my cherry trees to flower, my peacherine tree is covered in blossom so hoping there will be lots of fruit.  See yáll soon. .

Kia ora all. Sorry I have been a little distracted recently. How about we do our next get together on Saturday 29th October at 2pm. Our place is 7 Mallard Place, Unsworth Heights. Bring a plate with something from your Garden. Weather permitting we will open the hives for those interested.

Could anyone help me by doing a quote to install a sprinkler system for the small orchard of 12 fruit trees at our local Church community garden? I would appreciate some help this week with a quote if possible.

I offered to host the next Ooooby North Shore Meeting in October. I will have to be the second half of the month. Any preferences?

Working bee in the organic Tahitian Lime orchard in Waimauku. I have contacte dthe owner and she is amazed and pleased at our offer to help. She says the possums have taken to the orchard and eaten all buds and remaining fruit. I would like to organise for us to clear the bramble and cut back the pine tree branches and do some pruning on Saturday 17th Septemeber. We could meet at my house in Browns Bay  at 8:30am and car pool from there or meet out there. I would love to get help from those that have chain saws and pruning equipment. Please let me know if you can help. You could also email me at Thanks
