I placed an advert for members in the back of NZ gardener for our North Shore Ooooby group giving the link so we will see what happens. The issue is just out.

Hi there

Joined Ooooby a few weeks ago and am keen to get involved locally. Like most on this group, my garden is looking a little sparse at the moment but am trying to plant something for winter. Keen to work with a group to perhaps set up a local ooooby group.

Thanks Annabelle, I did a little research using google and found the info eventually on the NSC site. You can also have one of these animals Sheep, Pig and Goat as well as bees if you write a letter asking permission to have these. Thinking of bees myself actually. Found out the next meeting is at Carrington Tech first Saturday in May so may go check it out.

Hi Everyone. Not much going on in my patch either at the moment, apart from expansion plans to put into action over this winter!

Great idea, not enough going on in mine either. The growth rate has really dropped off with the slightly cooler temps, even in my raised vege bed.It's all looking a bit empty.But there do seem to be less bad bugs around to deal with. Planted some broad beans today.

Rob about chickens- I went to a really inspiring talk that Dee gave the other day, she mentioned that you can have up to 6 chooks in your garden in North Shore City.

Only just got myself into action but will have bounty by the end of winter :) As long as I get time in the patch. I am away nearly every weekend in winter at the snow.
I have a lot of room ie a few hundred sqm on my property in Birkdale so trying to make the most of it. Used to be a market garden and the soil is very good. It is all grass at the moment except for what I have cleared and tilled.

Does anyone know if it is ok to have chickens on the shore in a residential area?

Hello All, Ooooby was featured in this months NZ gardner magazine so I would think there will be a new wave of members soon. We should arrange a get together soon. Any thoughts or Ideas about where and what? Seed sharing is my thought.

On Offer: Wheatgrass seeds and celery
