WWOOFA Hosting, Seed Savers
Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We’ve cultivated our ¼ acre town section for more than 52 years and grow most of the fruit & veg we need, through all seasons. We’ve maintained soil fertility and healthy plants through crop rotation and the use of our home-made compost. We save a range of seeds, which we’re keen to share. (Enquire for list.) These are sold through the Green Dollar trading system and for NZ$ and we’re also open to barter arrangements. We also propagate and sell various plants: grape vines, currant bushes, perennials, grasses, succulents, seedlings…..
We’re open to ‘woofer’ arrangements.

As secretary of Living Economies Educational Trust I’m keen to promote the connection between local food and local currencies. Visitors are welcome to browse the resources in my office.

Helen, that's a wonderful offer! I would love that. I'm In Featherston but I can combine it with a grocery trip :-) I come from a line of great gardeners, but I'm afraid I'm not too green-fingered yet, and my mother's not local and Nan has passed on :-( I only have an 800m2 section which is already fairly established with some fruit trees and vines, but I'm keen to turn the back lawn over to chickens and veges. I'd love to be able to grow organically all seasons for health and economy as I have a young family.

Thanks Helen, I have been meaning to get down to the stalls at Belvedere for some time now. No doubt we will speak soon

Hi Helen, I too am in Carterton and looking at your picture I do believe I have seen you round.  :-)  Look forward to "talking" with you as I am just getting everything sorted here at our new place (new as in , this is our first summer here).  Go well :-)  Nancy

Hi Helen - there will be many more Ooooby markets popping up, and before long we will be letting you know how to start one in your area.

The seed issue is an interesting one. I asked one NZ supplier where they got most of their organic vege seeds and he told me "California and Spain". So all power to the local seedsavers!

Oh I put transition towns into the search and realise now that Ooooby grew out of transition towns! the penny drops.
