Hi Tony and others. Just in order to keep with the theme of Ooooby for now, could we please keep offers and wants related to food growing?
Tools, seedlings, cuttings, seeds, gardening books etc are all ok.

Oh my hasn't this group grown. So who is going to be the first to put up something they want to get rid of or something they are looking for? :)

As its a part of OOOBY I think it all comes out of our own back yards ( some things we would rather have out LOL) so go for it :)

In Auckland they have a 6 monthly in organic recycle week. Everyone puts out what they don't want and they anyone can go and take from that pile what they want at the end of the week or maybe its a month the council come round and picks up what is left and takes it away for free.
