COMMUNITY SEWING MACHINE

We now have a Community Sewing Machine in the Centre, thank you Baden! So this is a call out for cotton and sewing bits and bobs so that local community members can use the machine.

 

 

OOOOBY IS LOOKING FOR ORGANIC PRODUCE

Ooooby is still looking for good organic produce (no need to be certified if you promise your produce is free of chemicals), both veggies and fruit for our boxes.

We pack the boxes every Monday at the Waikato Environment Centre and would need to receive the produce at 4:00pm at the latest. I will be in touch every week to check in and see what is available and can you know each Friday afternoon exactly what amounts we would like to order. You then send us a simple invoice and we pay within 7 days of receiving the produce.

I have attached a document that explains the process a bit further. I really appreciate HOGs help in getting the word out for us and look forward to any responses

Warm regards,

Daphne    daphne@ooooby.com
