Hiya James, here is that good food forest site I mentioned on the Awhitu Peninsula http://www.awhitu.co.nz/

Hi James: thank you for the food forest effort on Waiheke. I am in Wellington now, and will be cycling back to Auckland by late April. I pledged $70 for the effort. May I have lunch with you instead, since I won't be in town when Andy is there?  I am happy with a plate of nuts and fruit.  It will be my only chance to meet you for at least another year or so.  Thanks for considering it, James. Please agree to my request only if it brings you joy to do so. Sincerely, Diane

Its great so many interesting article,blogs and pics... I spent time on the World wide Permaculture network today but oooby is much easier to use... especially for loading pictures.

Well done!

Next time someone gives you the "its just a spike" stuff, suggest that almost anything that once would have been no problem now causes a spoike and have they noticed that the spikes are getting more frequent and closer together.

Point being that PO itself doesn't "cause" anything, its the environment in which all these specific events play out. A bit like menopause, it changes the metabolism and THAT means that small changes that were easily handled by a younger person become major events.

Nice one on TV1 this morning. Its damned hard to compress the story into anything comprehensible in the sound bites they offer without sounding like your hair is on fire. Well done walking the line.

Its astounding they even raised the possibility of PO in a public forum but its a good sign that some sense of reality is setting in I suppose. Damn the AA guy and his "we don't have to change the way we live, just drive more carefully, inflate tyres etc". Gad.

Keep it up.

Hi James,
I came across a comment by you somewhere recently about community sufficiency being the focus rather than self sufficiency. I'm wondering if your could spare some thoughts on this as a new forum post on the Self Sufficiency group to help get people talking?

Hi James,
I'm looking to join a food cooperative on Waiheke and contacted a woman with a surname name something like Prashanti, but lost her contact information. Do you have any idea who this might be or the contact information for food cooperatives on the island? Thank you, I appreciate it.

Hi James,

Thanks for getting back, and sorry, I forgot I asked the question but yes, it did resolve itself.

Thanks again,

Hi James,

GLOBAL TRANSITION IN ACTION has added your 'Ooooby Box' to our collection of new and clever ideas for re-use by other localities globally. Great idea! It's now posted to the news feeds on approximately 260 websites. I took a bit of liberty with your graphic, so we could have a square icon for Facebook. Hope you don't mind.

You can read more about the intentions of GTTIA -- http://transitioninaction.com/forum/topics/global-transition-in-action

Wish I were close enough to order an Ooooby Box.
