Be Part of the Organic Food Revolution in NZ at Ooooby.org
Ooooby (out of our own backyards) is like a Facebook for people who are into home-grown food and local food. Through their social networking page you can connect with like-minded people and ‘locavores’ from all over the world. Read more inside..
Ooooby members are part of the food revolution that is building massive momentum every day. People in communities are returning to their own backyards and embracing the once declining skill of food growing. By putting the control of our food supply back into the hands of communities, people are reducing external influence on their food supply. By setting up the Ooooby Box service, delivering food from backyard growers and local farmers to your doorstep, Ooooby have made a practical move towards bringing about the cottage food renaissance. Ooooby is definitely a lifestyle choice with the end goal of eating the bulk of your basic foods fresh from your own local area.
Ooooby’s social networking page [ http://ooooby.ning.com ] brings together like minded people to share up-to-date information about local food, growing tips and inspirational stories. Communities are joining together, using Ooooby as a way to facilitate back yard food swaps and sales. The engagement of Ooooby in your area can create a contingent food economy for your community in the event of global economic or ecological shifts.
If you would like to sign up for an Ooooby box, go to their website at http://www.ooooby.org/
We seem to have forgotten how to live locally and in harmony with the seasons. The supermarkets have taught us that we can have what we want, when we want it for a very low price. This can hide the impact that these big food chains can have on our environment. Sign up for Ooooby today to make it easy to eat locally in a way that can be sustained by our communities.
