  • Hi Rachel :)

    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 ;)

    just incase you're missing out on any workshops being advertised that you may be interested in, or the regular monthly gatherings that everyone is welcome to come along anytime to.

    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 last wkend which was fun :)  and a gathering at the mt community garden yesterday.  next weekend on sun 16th we'll have an ooooby share table as part of the stalls at they sydenham botanic reserve in otumoetai.  and sat the 22nd we'll have an ooooby share table at the envirofest family funday/workshop day at the historic village ;)

    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 my mobile 021 064 9814 ;)

  • Hi Rachel, just letting you know that we are merging both of the tauranga groups on this website, because the bigger one is the active one, so we will do that this week ;)  have a good week ;)


  • Hi Rachel :)

    welcome :)

    hope you enjoy this website!  feel free to come along to any of the gatherings ;)  will send out the addresses for the 2 in march now :)

    and also you can get in touch with any of the other members via their pages, have you seen the calender for the sustainable backyards months this month?  it's on the envirohub website and lists over 50 events ;)
