All my address books etc are packed into storage but you could ring my Nana during the day to get her number 06) 7523804 (or 6 as the last number, I always get them mixed up) Her name is Violet and please send her my love. Not sure where in the world I will unpack my stuff but I am currently teaching on a PDC at Djangbung Gardens in Australia. Hope you are well and happy, arohanui
On a more positive note I'm really enjoying Ooooby, you and Pete are doing an awesome job and had great vision setting it up.
I joined up to the North Shore group,we have had 2 get togethers,so slowly getting there,but there's also a fair bit of chat going on,so it's all good!
A goup of Waitakere ooooby's attended David Holmgren's talk last nite at the W.C.C. in Henderson. Such a pity that we could not hear him.
Heard Mark Allen mention that there was another meeting coming up soon for Matariki.
There needs to be a sound system in place, with lapel mic's. A conversation type format is only appropriate if the audience can hear it. Will try and find Mark and John's email address so they are better prepared next time.
That's cool...I'll mention that the groups are on ooooby. I heard a woman named Richelle at ARC is putting a list together too, so maybe we'll combined. You've been hanging with my friend Crystalene. She told me she's planning our CSA. That's my girl. Asked around about the youtube thing but no luck so far. Actually I kind of forgot about it...thanks for reminding me. I think the new guy at work can do it. Enjoy enjoy!
James , copy of message to Pete FYI
Hey Pete , I am doing a part workshop at East Tamaki Primary School tmrw (wed) on recycling and seedpot rolling to 7~10 year olds as part of the www.garden2table.co.nz program (which you and James should check out).
www.themaz.co.nz is donating some of our stuffs to the program.
Question for you ... could I encourage the kiddies to join Ooooby if they wanted? Perhaps they could even have their own section ... Im travelling up from Hawkes Bay today , so maybe please text or call me on 021488777 with your thoughts.
Hello! Thank you for the welcome! In answer to your question, no I don't know of anyone in my area who is also on Ooooby-not yet anyway but I'm sure that will change as soon as I've spread the word!!! This site is so informative and I've already invited quite a few of my Canadian 'neighbours'. Stay tuned!
What a lovely invite... yes, I think I can... both come and get Mr. Claude to join me, he is so focused at the moment. Thanks for the feedback on the page... realising i need to update some garden photos soon. I will ring sometime this morning to confirm a time. Looking forward! G.
Ohhhhh allllllllllllllllright! After a few dead ends I gave up and decided my easiest option was passing it on to you. I guess in my busy madness I forget that others are busy too. Thanks James for all the wonderful work you do. I'm not taking advantage of that! Hope you and the family are well.
