"Hello! Can anybody tell me the easiest way to get raw milk (goat or cow) from Ponsonby / CBD area? If somebody picks up occasionally from a farm, I would be happy to pay them to pick some up for me too! Thank you!"

Monsanto and gang, coming soon to your backyard!

When the handful of corporations set on owning, controlling and über-profiting from our common seed heritage — Monsanto, Syngenta, DuPont, Dow, BASF and Bayer — began experimenting with their proprietary chemicals and genetically engineered crops in Hawaii in the 1990s, barely a peep was made. Two decades later, we can’t even convince our Hawaii state government to pass a law mandating that these companies release basic information about the pesticides they spray next to primary schools.…

Hi Andrea,

I see you were looking to obtain raw milk a while ago. Have you had any luck? If not, I may be able to help. Give me a call on 846 3327, you can catch me most evenings, or if not, leave me a message, I'll get back to you. 

Cheers,

Helen

Hey Andrea-

I read your piece on Common Dreams, did a bit of cyber sleuthing, and voila!  Writing form Eugene, Oregon, USA.  I am a climate change activist and am putting together a campaign to raise awareness to 'pierce through the fog' that you wrote about.  I am on the lookout for folks of similar outlook with whom to network and so am reaching out.  If you would like I'd love your take on my project.  New to Ooooby- I am assuming that we can communicate here a la Facebook and my personal email is dagold56@hotmail.com as well.  Peace. David

Aloha Andrea, I want to grow that movement too. 'Collective action for  a collective world' reminds me of an indigenous proverb:

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou
ka ora ai te iwi
With your food basket and my food basket
the people will thrive
