Ooooby is a not-for-profit social business that pays fairly and is owned collectively by its members.
Ooooby members are part of the food revolution that is building massive momentum every day. Millions are returning to their own backyards and embracing the once declining skill of food growing.
Ooooby is a lifestyle choice with the goal of eating the bulk of our basic foods fresh from our own local area.
We are not talking about giving up chocolate or coffee because they're not produced locally. We are simply suggesting that it is possible for our basic staple to be provided from local sources if we work together with local farmers and backyard food growers.
At Ooooby like minded people gather to share up to date information about local food, growing tips, inspirational stories and more. Lots of people are also using Ooooby as a way to facilitate back yard food swaps and sales.
The engagement of Ooooby in your local area can create a kind of contingent food economy for your community in the event of global economic or ecological shifts.
You can also participate on Facebook and Twitter.
