We're looking at fund raising options at the moment, have got two sites for community gardens, one kindly provided on private land in Speargrass Flat Rd near Arrowtown & the other close to town provided by the council. Literally green field sites and we need to start from scratch. Have already obtained one grant (we've done all the official stuff setting up an incorporated society, applying for charitable status etc) and planted some experimental crops in the Speargrass Rd site. Gleaning lots of good ideas from the other groups on Ooooby. Will give you plenty of notice when we get something organised but you're always welcome to visit us, would be great to talk to you.

hello Pete, looks like Queenstown is slowly starting to gather some momentum at last. When are you coming down here to visit us? Thanks for a great site, am astonished how quickly it's growing.

Yep, I gave it to the ladies who were on the stall - about the same amount as last time. I told them to donate the proceed to the GLFM. Will bring more next week if there is still some on trees.

Great flashmob Pete. Glad there was one on Waiheke. Have you seen the photos on the Avaaz.org site. It is so heartening.

Thanks,
It's nice to hear that. Definitely the people involved with me in the project are lovely, with good ideas and a lot of passion. They also run permaculture classes, garden classes, beekeeping... Mike and Suzie are involved in community gardens too. She just did a workshop at the launching of a new National Irish Network called GIY (Grow It Yourself), www.giyireland.
And beside all the social commitment, they are a lot of fun!!Yu shoud see their mongolian ghers...
Ciao,
Federica

Hi Pete,
I took over the OOOOBY project last Monday. I am working as an intern for www.dulra.org.
I studied, at the University of Gastronomic Science sponsored by Slow Food, food and communication. The general idea is that I'll manage the promotion of the store. And on the creation of the store itself.
At the moment there are only scratches to work on: a small buyers' group already settled to expand, a network of local producers yet to be organized and a lot of information campaigns to be done.
The good thing is that Dulra is already known around for gardening, beekeeping, permaculture and so on classes.
If you have any advice to give me I would be very happy to hear from you.
Federica

what a nice welcome. The farmers market looks like a great success, Yay we have one in the hood at last. I had to miss out last week due to work but this week me and my surplus veges are on our way.

So far so good! So much info! But loving this fabulous spring weather & looking forward to lots of planting! I see you are in Waiheke - love that place.

many thanks - it's all a bit bewildering, to tell you the truth, but i'm sure i'll come to grips with it. cheers!

Hi Russell,
Yeah I did, raging success by the look of the number of people there. Great atmosphere, cool having music and perfect weather. I'm looking forward to the market becoming more established and having access to some more local produce, as well as a little less hectic to give people time to meet.
It's been a real incentive to get in touch with more local people and involved with some of the garden projects around.
Cheers,
Ruth
