The first Ooooby Waikato boxes went out to 48 customers on Wednesday, then there was a wonderful Pecha Kucha talk at the beautiful Wintec Atrium. Across to the Hawkes Bay the next day to visit Greg and Rachel Hart at The Family Farm and make plans for the Beyond Organic Tour (Mar 2015).
Then back over the range on Route 5 to make more friends with Catherine, Neville and a crew of lovely people doing their PDC with Plenty Permaculture. Back to the Waikato on Sunday morning to meet with Danielle and Mateusz to keep the Ooooby Waikato hub humming along.
What a whirlwind five days!
How do we stay connected
Slack, the communications tool which Ooooby has been using for the last few months, is proving to be very effective in supporting everyone to self-manage within the roles they have taken on. On this trip I supported Greg and Catherine to get familiar with it for the Beyond Organic tour, and Mateusz for his role as supply coordinator for Ooooby Waikato. If you’re interested, you can watch the video about how we use it with Ooooby.
