We have a 1/4 acre section which we have begun to turn into an edible garden. So far we have 40 trees and planting veg herbs etc also bees. We are interested in learning about permaculture. We just started about 9 months ago and know we have missed many vital steps.

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 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, 1-4pm. 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 ;)
welcome to the tauranga ooooby group :) your property sounds great, some of us went over to katikati recently and had an ooooby day there with the permaculture group they have running there and that was pretty interesting. we toured 2 different places that had been permablitzed, there are certainly some members in this group who know a fair bit about it.
the permablitz website is pretty cool if you haven't already discovered it, not up and running in tga as yet, but kati is quite close if you ever want to join a permablitz sometime www.permablitzbopnz.net
hope you enjoy this site, and feel free to come along to any of the gatherings, they are generally the 2nd sat of the month from 10-12noon ;) I can't make it to this weekend's one as I'll be in Hobbiton, praps meet you at the december one though ;)
