Thanks Pete! I'm hoping some others from my suburb of Christchurch or nearby suburbs will join as well. I swap stuff with my neighbour at the moment and it's lots of fun. Cucumbers in exchange for black boy peaches etc. It's just great. Belinda
Hi Pete, I am loving your website. Your mum has been filling my mum in on all the wonderful things you have all been doing over there.
It is so funny because all of a sudden through out my life everyone is doing the garden and sustainable living thing, and it just makes life so much deeper and furfilling!
And then I found a whole other world on your website, were 100's are intune with it. So thank you and its great to be back in touch. Have a beautiful day Lisa
Your right I am a pioneer. It's great to be contacted by someone so advanced in so many ways, and your a day ahead of me as well. Great job on ooooby,concept and execution. Stay in touch you are certainly in tune. You have beautiful child on your shoulders and in your heart.
Hi Pete...will meet you at next weeks meeting on at store with Georgie thanks for the intro. No worries about navigation of site familiar with Ning as I also belong to Skout for childrens wear traders on Ning. For more about us check on Organic Island Baby
Look forward to being part of this unity building self sufficent experience Jx
HI Pete, Thanks for the welcome. I am hoping to get this up and running in my community , it is rather spread out in the Nambucca Valley. I love the concept of this site. It's cool how a website can extend community spirit across the tasman. Thank you.
I found one way to search for woofing hosts, and that's do an advanced search for members, selecting only the location and the WWOOFER Hosting boxes, and they all show up. maybe a sign somewhere directing people to use that search members function, and make suggestions like: "looking for wwoof hosts, simply do an advanced search and check the woof host box and in the address section, the area you are interested in woofing in". or you could expand woofing from being a sub category of "areas of interest" to its own category, and people could check boxes on what kind of work they have and what skills they would appreciate woofers to have.
We are still travelling, in China at the moment, but back to UK soon!
Look forward to seeing you in Totnes and continuing our discussions. I just told my daughter living in NYC about your concept, she just set up a CSA http://southsidecsa.wordpress.com/, and thought she might be interested in ooooby Yours
The Waitakere Sharing group visited the Ranui Community Gdn today, it was good to see.
My question is: Is it possible for all the westoooobyians who have listed themselves as 'Kelston ' or 'Te Atatu', be grouped as Waitakere so when we do a search for other oooobyian neighbours then one click will bring us all together...does that make sense?
You're a genius!
googled myelf to see what info was out there and found alyn male on oooby. Too much of a coincdence i thought and sure enough it aint quite as it looks. You have an alyn who is a male but my exclusive name remains!
Hey Pete! Hope you're well and the ooooby store continues to thrive!
We're wanting to put it out there for a WWOOFer to come our way the week of 15 March, but I can't work out how best to post this on the ooooby site. If you have time, could you drop me a line? But only if you have time, coz I know you're a busy fella!
See you soon
Thanks Pete, Hopefully you caught up with my brother-in-law Chris ( KINATONIC man) today on Waiheke. I love the concept of ooooby.
Although I am very keenly interested in home gardening - sustainably, I am have also been very focussed on tracking the WEB 2.0/Social Networking Services sector.
I was very excited whejn I bumped into your site - and immediately Chris Morrison to it. ooooby is right in synch with emerging trends (sustainability, community, sustainability, affordability). The anawer I am looking for - is how will you monetise it while maintaining confidence of the ooooby community.
