have learnt that not everyone is receiving the ooooby gathering messages I've been sending via this website, for some reason... so thought I'd better touch base and see if you are getting them, and if not - if you'd like to be in the loop just give me your email address and will fwd them that way ;)
normally there are backyard gatherings the 2nd sat of each month between 10am-12noon, and a great way to share produce and swap seeds etc :)
this month is sustainable backyards month, so we have extra events - we had a stall at the nashi harvest festival at the arty house in tepuna early march, which was fun :) and a gathering at the mount community garden last wkend.
this weekend on sun 16th we'll have an ooooby share table as part of the stalls at they sydenham botanic reserve in otumoetai, 1-4pm. (hopefully the weather will work out) and sat the 22nd we'll have an ooooby share table at the envirofest family funday/workshop day at the historic village 10-3pm ;)
might try some sunday gatherings from april to see how that suits people and that gathering will probably be at Jane Powel's in Papamoa that month, she's the one who often runs the 'make your own probiotics' and cheesemaking workshops.
hope you are enjoying 2014, and look forward to seeing you if you'd like to come along sometime :)
- if you would like the gatherings emailed, you can send your email address in a private message, by either clicking 'add as friend' at the top left of my page, or text it to my mobile 021 064 9814 ;)
You are always welcome to come along to any of the gatherings around Tauranga if you like sometime :) they have just started gathering momentum recently and are going really well, everyone is really enjoying meeting like minds. :)
They are generally the 2nd sat of each month, and the next one is this Saturday in Pyes Pa, with details on the Tauranga Ooooby page. :)
hey...just checking you got the message with Andrew's phne number... I didn't want it to be public so sent a mssg instead.. he was advertising volunteer help at the pcc and i immediately thought of your bypass guy... I asked him if i could pass his number on to you he's really keen to help...so many awesome people in the world aren't there :)
heya, would be good to find out more about the community garden project(s) - feel free to put any messages on the tauranga page about it - or anything to do with tga transitional towns, sounded interesting.
That sounds really interesting, good to hear that people are getting together to make positive changes. I'm just about to do some wwooffing, so might have to hang fire, gonna go hang out with some alpacas for awhile :o)
