Can anyone give me a tip about a good place to get a decent amount of seed potatoes? We are wanting to plant them for our food bank so want a whole lot for not a whole lot of money!  Thanks.

As this is a co-operative it is a bit different to your usual box scheme. This is the most direct connection between grower and consumer. There are NO wholesalers, NO retailers, NO packaging, NO warehousing, or any of the other costs associated with the distribution of food through normal channels. The consumer end of the co-operative’s distribution system is carried out by members as part of their commitment to the co-operative. The grower receives all the money that the consumers pay for their produce – meaning a happy farmer! Happy consumers too – not only do they receive the freshest, most delicious, most nutritious vegetables; they pay a fair price, and they know that their food supply is secure because their farmer is secure.

Pretty awesome... so sign-up and please spread the word to Wellington. Join the facebook page here too.

Hey Wellington,

How many of you would be interested in contributing and/or purchasing from a local Ooooby stall?

What kinds of things would you have to offer and what kinds of things would you be interested in buying?

Finishing off the year with full-day workshops for the keen and hungry! Give the gift of education and enthusiasm for sustainability this Christmas and taste the results in next year's jams, pickles, chutneys, cakes, cookies, health and happiness!

Hi guys, Can anyone recommend a good place to get seedlings in Wellington?
Comment by Jenni Werth on August 14, 2010 at 8:55am
Hi everyone...,

We are currently looking for a medium to long term place to park our caravan in the wellington area. Ideally we would love to live with like-minded people in a small community, be in the country, would love to garden together and be social.... We have been living in our caravan in Upper Hutt for about 6 months, but need to move, as the land we are on is being sold.
But if have some land or know someone with land, we would love to meet up and talk about the possibilities.
Thanks for your help!

Autumn&Jenni
