Yes! We are still interested.  All the questions below are still on the table! Thanks for remembering us.

That's a bit sad! (but no-one's got hurt!) Yesterday 28 North School Envirogroup children came down to the Garden in a bus.  They planted more than 500 flower plants which they had raised from seed.  Oh well, the local bees will benefit.  Better luck next season? If you have access to Facebook you can see their photos on the Garden page - Tokoroa Community Garden.

That's good news! We are wondering what the setup will be. Does money change hands? We are more interested in the bees than the honey. But would we be able to get some honey?  Would you like to sell your honey on our weekly stall - a small percentage coming to us, perhaps? Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi! Daniel! We are still interested in the bees if you are!...the 'we' being the Tokoroa Community garden.  We have gone ahead in leaps and bounds since I last contacted you.  Become a Friend on our facebook, if you wish, and keep up with progress.

That looks brilliant!  Wow!

The 'Tokoroa Community Garden' is on Facebook - with photos, if you want to see what we are doing...

Well, that is good news!  Thanks for the offer of a beehive.  It would be wonderful to have them there. Yes, keep in touch!

Sorry about your bees - after you tried so valiently to get them going.  It was just by accident that I found your sad story.  I am now working back at the Tokoroa Community Garden (which now has its own page on Facebook). I googled Bee hives NZ to see if I could find a local to put some hives on site - and there you are!  We can't afford to buy anything, we were just wondering if someone wanted a site. Hoep you find a keen buyer.  Incidentally, do you know anyone who would like a new site?

Hi Daniel, yep fine, still no job, but chooks are fine, will be posting a few queries about chooks to the poultry group soon, as for the gardens, got to get into them, tomorrows scheduled powercut should motivate me, blasted slugs have decimated my seedlings, including the ones in trays on the deck, they must be cunning little slugs as the chooks clean them up as fast as they can

Thanks for that Sarah, i have just picked the bags up, I did reply earlier, but i must have replied to the ooooby email, and it has been busily bouncing back to me.

Thank Dan for me too please, it is much appreciated

Hi Daniel

Any chance of getting some more wood shavings, and cheers for telling us about the little playground over your end, we finally found it, and the kids had a blast, although the did spend a bit of time trying to chat to the chooks that were in a neighbouring property there

Haha! Our garden is expanding too! Whats Achoka? My partner just came home today and said he wants to get everything done this weekend... so hopefully we have nice weather. We are growing purple Urenika potatoes, jerusalem artichokes, lettuces, lots of tomatoes, cucumber, zuccini, spinach, silverbeet, carrots, kamokamo, and I am just waiting for my basil seed to arrive so I can plant loads of that. I planted some Jicama seed but am a bit scared to put it in the garden.... it grows very big apparently. I bet your children love the chicks! My son has just turned one and he loves the outdoors I cant wait till he can get in the garden and grow things too.
I went to a wonderful seedswap run by the hamilton group, they are having some more in the near future - perhaps you and your wife want to go to it, or Robyn? It was great - everyone had some treasured seeds to share!

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for adding me. Im in Te Awamutu - so not too far from you and Robyn. I love this Ooooby - its fantastic! What are you growing?

Hello! Yes, I really would. I am able to put half weight on my toes now - aiming for whole foot next week. It's darned frustrating because not only have I only one leg, I have no hands. They're busy holding the zimmer frame. If i can't put in my pocket or up my jumper, I'm stuffed! I didn't know it all would take so darned long to get moving again. I really appreciate you remembering...

Thanks for the offer Daniel, would be very interested in seeing a fellow Putaruvian's garden, how have your fejoas gone, as that was the first thing we planted when we arrived here, but i'm guessing we may have to wait a few years for fruit.

We will be in Auckland that weekend and will stay for a few days up there. Wil contact you when we get back.

That must be such a thrill for you! I will certainly do that! Glad everything is going well.
We are all well here.
Do you need any leek seeds - and I forgot the popping corn. I'd love to come and see your garden and could bring the seeds up. Say when1

Hi! I spoke to Annie from Pride in Putaruru today. She told me of the community garden plans and her programmes of gardening in the local schools. I told her about Ooooby and she is going to do a write up in her newspaper - The Prattler?, did I hear her call it?. Hope she does a good job. It's a bit lonely being by ourselves. isn't it?

Hello again!
How is the garden progressing?
I keep looking to see if there are any people joining in our area.
I keep talking about Ooooby to any one who will listen. Lots interested and think it's a good idea but haven't taken the next step yet.
If there is anything I can help you with under the umbrella of SPARC, let me know. (see my profile)
