Hi James, I was just watching the video of Vandana Shiva, what a fascinating lady! How can we get her to sign on to ooooby? I knew that companies were tamering with seed but I didn't relise that it was an Indutrial movement. It's frighting how close we are coming to having no control over our lives at all, if we lose the ablility to grow seed and veges. them the industries of the world could charge what they wanted, chose who lives and who dies. OOOOBY IS HERE TO STOP IT!!!
Yes, read couple of weeks back in the local mag and a girlfriend goes every week... she's says absolutely fantastic and while the group is relatively small, sure it will get bigger as had a bit of publicity. I'm unable to attend as parent help at school on fridays (bummer!).
Help - my citrus are in a bad way. I don't know what to do. I mulched with seaweed last year and pruned. Unrelated to that I am sure I have little to no fruit and heaps of bugs and mites. Very sad lemon and other citrus.
Ha thanks James, it was good to see how it looked. Iwould have been more famous in Whanganui (I stayed up half the night before making a shirt with Whanganui's missing H emblazoned across it) but the camera shot was too high and you couldn't see it 8(

cheers for the comments, but the it's usual story, the more u learn the more you need to learn, hahaaa thats what makes life so exciting. Hey if you know of any good peeps in my area Mt Eden send them in my ways keen to get some networks happing. Ive got 3 raised vege beds cranking, a chook house/ seed raising hut nearly completed, 2 bathtub wormfarms, some really old fruit trees and a big space to use. Im always on the lookout for seedling swaps, working bees, permablitz ect anyone got a heap of spare comfrey?
just found the comment sent, have been a bit busy of late as i have just been allowed chickens!! so far spent only $20 on the enclosure but should get another 3 veg beds built in. will post more pics as i can.
Cool - thanks for the welcome note James :-) Yes, Waimauku is a great part of the world and we love being able to grow a good lot of our fruit and veges here at home... I am very keen to get involved with Transition Towns out this way - there are a definitely a few people talking about it which is great - just need to on to the action! :-) Ooooby is fab - great vision - thanks!!!!

Good day James. Hope you are well. I've heard you are coming to EcoDay. I will have a small stall with the Sustainable Homes crew. I was thinking about making an ooooby thingy to display at the stall. Were you already doing that? Do you have any suggestions for me? I know you are busy...I can whip something together if I don't hear from ya. Thanks!
James, thank you! What a supportive note to find waiting for me. Appreciate it. This is such a sensational concept, only to get better over time...! Happy to be a part of this.. see you on the 5th. gabriella
