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.
Thanks for the warm welcome, Pete!
I am keen to meet fellow OoObyies and share knowledge, produce, skills and joy! We just started a vegie garden at the back of a rental property (huge space enough for 3 gardens) and would like to see how other people do theirs... By seeing and asking we can learn.
Hi Pete - apologies for not getting back to you. Sandra is involved in the Transition stuff here in Glasgow and got the link from our site so all is good there. Also thought you might be interested in this link to the Commonwealth Orchard, which is an initiative that started here in Glasgow in the lead up to the Commonwealth Games in 2014 - would be great if there were some pooping up in NZ and maybe when the NZ athletes come over they could visit some of our orchards!! You can also see some pics on the TT Glasgow website as well.
Hi am glad it worked- my skills are not in computer land.I would be happy to put in occasional hours in the shop also watering/ care of nursery plants. Would be interested in a herbal workshop at some stage- more available after Easter. Cheers Shona
Great Site Peter .... may I offer you a 'gratis' 1 litre of KinaTonic from the healing beach of Waimarama , Hawkes Bay? You may not realise it baut 'Waimaz' is the East Coasts Waiheke ... we just dont realise it yet!
Sorry Pete it wasn't me who spoke to you on the phone sorry mate.
How did you fair in the storm? i had a panel come off our garage and squash my fully grown broccoli plants but other than that came through OK.
