If you're anything like us, you may have too much food in your garden at the moment.

The idea of preserving in bottles and jars is all very romantic, but with our fast paced life, we find it quite a challenge to find the time and space to get it done.

 

Introducing a new way to preserve the value of your garden harvest.

 

Step 1.  Wake up early Sunday morning and harvest all the excess food that you're not likely to eat.

Step 2.  Pop it all into a basket and take it down to your local Ooooby Stall.

Step 3.  Display your food for sale and earn Roobys (stall credits) when they sell.

 

Voila!  By doing this you turn your food into Roobys which do not rot or spoil. You can then use your Roobys at a later date to buy food or convert them to cash.

 

The only Ooooby Stall at the moment is at the Grey Lynn Farmers Market in Auckland, but more will be sprouting up soon.

 

The Grey Lynn Ooooby Stall is open from 9am to 12.30pm on Sunday mornings (except the last Sunday of the month) at the Grey Lynn Community Centre, 510 Richmond Road, Grey Lynn.

 

The next market day is Sunday 6th of February.

And if you're not near a stall, I'm sure there is a Food Bank close by that would welcome any contribution.

That's a nice twist on food preserving :-)
