Pete,

Sorry for the delay. By the middle of last week, all 20 spots filled up (just before the early bird deadline). I am considering a second group, however, which would likely begin on March 15 - would this be an interest for you? There would be no problem with a 1 year old, though I would have to check into whether the hotels would charge - I doubt it though. I should know if there will be a second trip by the end of September for sure.

Cheers,

Ron

Hi Pete
My comuptor has had a wobble lately but finally back on track! Is It possible for a search engine that we can pop up everything to do with the search like google? I was thinking about cheese making and wondering how to look up any one with experience with that! But cheese dosen't grow in gardens although it's just up the allie of self suffisanty. What do you think?

Thank you for the personal message...def still got my trainer wheels on ...ditto for the huge amount of chaos that is my infant orchard and garden....Kikuyu grass (an African import we get in Northland that is like the day of the triffids!!) being my major enemy!

Hi Pete,
Thanks for your contact. This is my frist chance to reply as it has been pretty hectic here! I am looking forward to getting to grips with Ooooby and hopefully meeting some of you at the next get together. I also just got a bee-hive, so hope to learn how to work it soon!
Cheers,
Susan

Thanks Pete sorry for delay in replying - don't get much time to sit and play on the pc! Had a roam around the different sections of the site this morning and it looks great. Thanks for putting it together.

Yes Pete, I am organizing and coordinating this tour. Will be the second year. Last year was great and I have made some extraordinary contacts in the Cuban permaculture and and urban agriculture movements. As long as you can get yourself to Cuba and can get a tourist visa, it would be no problem to have you join us. We begin and end in Varadero as that is where most of the cheaper flights go. I assume that you were able to see the brochure for the trip on my web site? Please let me know what else you need to know. Presently we have about 10 of the 20 spots filled.

Pete - I'm the Labour and Co-operative Party Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for The Wrekin with a special interest in allotments. One of my current campaigns is Allotments for All to meet the demand for allotments locally. As a serial social investor I'm promoting the use of Industrial and Provident Society legislation to encourage people to subscribe to withdrawable share capital invested in community assetts - like allotments.

Thanks Pete, it is the combination of Biointensive Raised Bed Gardening and Small Hybrid Adobe Cottages that i am most excited about. Really intensive communal living where everyone still has their own space. This should be attainable for any unemployed youth. I call them Adobevilles
Cheers Grant

Hi Pete thanks for the welcome. I've recently relocated to a frost free area of the North of NZ (from the colder South) and I'm loving being able to plant some herb and vege crops all through the year. I'm now working on making greater quantities of compost to feed the ground which is producing so much!
BTW I love your area of the UK, I guess there's a shorter growing season, but I bet it grows great brassicas.

Sounds good, dependng on crowded diaries ! I know we have a board meeting on Weds but will pass it on to G and one of us will let you know - I am assuming you are still in the UK enjoying the fine growing weather !
I have just joined the Huddersfield group - like minded people I think !

Hi Pete Yes he did - I hope you enjoyed your visit to Green Valley Grocers - still early days, but with the bakery opening, things are settling down well, with lots of interest from local people which we hope will translate into more growing over the next few months ! Slaithwaite offers a challenging growing context for a lot of things - very windy, lots of rain, and some sun, cold in the winter, but it used to be a prime raspberry growing site many years ago and there are plans afoot .......
I think this is a great site and will keep bobbing in to see whats happening. Will certainly send the link to my growing friends !
