Thanks so much. Are you on constant stand-by to welcome new members?!
Yes, ooooby grapes small and sweet. Two buckets full, squished to make grape juice. Delicious.

Hi Pete
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!

Nice work on the Blog RSS on the Intersect Ooooby group. That works well. Curious to know what the feed info was?

Pete, Thank you so much for hosting the evening. Great turnout, and a strong lift to the OOOBY initiative.

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.

If I come up with any ideas - I'll let know.

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.
Cheers! galina

Hey Pete,

Apologies for tonite will have to be in order for me, as something urgent has "come a croppa", as they say. Look forward to hearing about it soon.

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

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.

Hi Pete and thanks for the welcome! I'm really frustrated because i'm looking through my browsing history trying to work out where the link was that got me to oooby. I can't see it now but i'm pretty sure i put in "collecting parsley seed" as the first oooby page I viewed was livinggirls blog post with that title. I think what you are doing here is great.
