I didn't think this site was for professionals.  I thought the idea was to share information to help gardeners.  I don't like the way it is going.  Am I the only one???

I have three wooden seed tray to give away.  They are too heavy for me now.  Free to a good home.  Nothing wrong with them, and I could bring them to the Sydenham swap meeting on 22nd.  Anyone want them?

Hi James,

Several members of the Tauranga Oooby group are taking Catherine's PDC so we can talk to you on the 16th. Look forward to meeting you.

Thank you for joining me up to this group.

Given we are about to launch the Ooooby Box in the Waikato (first boxes are being delivered on Wed 13th Aug), I thought it was time to connect with you lovely people, for some conversation about possibly doing something similar in Tauranga.

I'll be speaking about Food Forests at one of Catherine Dunton-MacLeod's permaculture events on Sat the 16th August, and would be available from early afternoon, if anyone would like to connect.

I made contact with Carina, just now and she said she'd get hold of Rebecca, and possibly others, and see what might work. Meanwhile please feel free to comment here.

Looking forward to meeting you.
