There are currently over 4000 members of Ooooby who talk to each other about all sorts of things like gardening tips, seasonal recipes, keeping chooks and bees, preserving surplus food and lots of other interesting foodie things. You, as a member, can then find out who else in your neighbourhood is into growing and eating local food. Many local groups are now organising food bartering days and local meetings with like-minded folk. Check their Social Network here - http://ooooby.ning.com
Ooooby members are all part of the food revolution that is building huge momentum every day. People all over the world are returning to their own back yards and embracing the declining skill of growing and eating your own food from your own back yard. It is a lifestyle choice with the goal of eating as much as you can from your own local area.
Basically, you are probably just looking to have a fabulous box of fresh, locally sourced fruit and vegetables delivered to your home on a weekly basis. However, once you have become involved with the Ooooby culture of sustainable and local produce, you will undoubtedly want to learn more about the social and environmental advantages to be gained as well by growing and eating local food.
Each yummy box of Ooooby goodies contains fruit, vegetables and salads, ten different items which vary week to week [ http://www.ooooby.org/
