Hi Jacqui, I'm really keen on getting things going with our Admirals, but I'm all the way over in Howick so probably won't make it to your meeting. I'm definitely interested in staying in touch and finding out about anything that's happening, esp if it's a bit more central.

hello Jacqui, like you, would love to find some one to barter home kill beef and lamb from. Another option would be as per Tara's request http://ooooby.ning.com/group/sharinginauckland/forum/topics/ethically-raised-beef-and-pork

There are certainly enough like minded people here on ooooby to get this off the ground. Good luck in your quest.

Hi Jacqui


I dont know where a bee hive is but i have tons of bees in my garden. Just throw some borage plants in your garden you can get them in the herb section of your local nursery and the bees will come in mass.  no fuss for you or chasing the bees, they come to you.
