  • Hi Kelli :)

    have learnt that not everyone is receiving the ooooby gathering messages I've been sending via this website, for some reason...  so thought I'd better touch base and see if you are getting them, and if not - if you'd like to be in the loop just give me your email address and will fwd them that way ;)

    normally there are backyard gatherings the 2nd sat of each month between 10am-12noon, and a great way to share produce and swap seeds etc :)

    this month is sustainable backyards month, so we have extra events - we had a stall at the nashi harvest festival at the arty house in tepuna early march, which was fun :)  and a gathering at the mount community garden last wkend. 

    this weekend on sun 16th we'll have an ooooby share table as part of the stalls at they sydenham botanic reserve in otumoetai, 1-4pm.  (hopefully the weather will work out)  and sat the 22nd we'll have an ooooby share table at the envirofest family funday/workshop day at the historic village 10-3pm  ;)

    might try some sunday gatherings from april to see how that suits people and that gathering will probably be at Jane Powel's in Papamoa that month, she's the one who often runs the 'make your own probiotics' and cheesemaking workshops.

    hope you are enjoying 2014, and look forward to seeing you if you'd like to come along sometime :)

    - if you would like the gatherings emailed, you can send your email address in a private message, by either clicking 'add as friend' at the top left of my page, or text it to my mobile 021 064 9814 ;)

  • Hi Kelli :)

    was good to see you at the gathering at Jane's :)  and was neat with all the cute kids, and cute animals :)

    have updated the main page with the next gathering, it's going to be on a sunday this time.  look forward to seeing you again, if you can make it next time, or whenever suits ;) 

    hope you're enjoying this summery weather!

  • Hi Kelly, Yes it was. I am at juilias workshop on Saturday next 10am. Kathy Fathers (Pilians Point is also coming. I guess if you are not attending could you leave it with her if you are that way, otherwise I will come and pick it up. Thanks

    Thank you also for welcoming us today. The biggest ooooby event to date. It was wonderful.  You have a beautiful canvas to work on with so much space and opportunity.  Enjoy with your family.  Jane
