Thanks for your reply to my query the other day Pete. Are there any volunteer opportunities and opportunities to earn Roobys through Ooooby projects? I am currently reading fleeing vesuvious which details local economies as the way forward - came across the Rooby shortly after! EXCITING! Cheers,  Katie

Hey Ooooby crew. I am just establishing my garden in my new home. If I have extras, how can I add it to the ooooby mix? It would not end up being enough for more than a few boxes worth of one or 2 types of produce. Do you deal with offerings of such a small size or just larger producers?


Cheers,  Katie

Looks like I should turn up ere after bombarding Pete with emails and stuff about what Ooooby needs to do and be. (Or in the words of frank Sinatra, Dobedobedooooby)

I live in Glen Innes and we need a local market here. There is an attempt to have one at the Netball courts on a Sunday morning but it is so disconnected from the shopping centre that nobody goes and very few stallholder bother to turn up.

I'd suggest an Ooooby stall but I don't think it would get any business there. On the other hand, if we could get something started at the railway station carpark, we might get somewhere.

Does anyone know someone in Kiwirail that we could get on board?

Hi fellow crew members,
I am new to this and look forward to meeting everyone to help secure our sources of food. I will be taking a permaculture certification design course at Koanga from Jan 10-24.

David thats the OOOBY spirit. They had a conservation and recycling thing at flaxmere today with Bokashi and worm bins and council enitives and much more it would have been neatto see Ooobys stand there as we - WE GOTTA GET MORE ACTIVE PEOPLE.
Public awaremness, training programmes start getting ourselves in the press and much more,
Lets make the miracle happen.

Pete if we can get the produce there is now a market in Flaxmere
and the main one in town on a Saturday in Hastings.
If more hands are needed in Napier I know someone who may jump at the opportunity and she loves this sorta thing.
