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.

These workshops run from 9am to 4pm and are an excellent way to get in depth on concepts outlined in Kay's talk last month.  We hope many of you can attend!  To register, go to

Kay Baxter is returning to Tauranga this week and is offering a free seminar on "Urban Design for Nutritional Resilience" on Friday 27 June from 7-9pm at the Village Hall, Historic Village.  Please spread the word!

I don't think you need to book for this. Just turn up.
