Rebuilding the local food system

Our mission is to make local food convenient, affordable and fair everywhere.

We exist to help rebuild local food economies because we believe that changing the way we grow, process and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

Come along to this meeting at the Canterbury Horticultural Society on Riccarton Ave, and learn about the soon to launch Ooooby hub in Christchurch.

Hear Pete Russell and James Samuel from Ooooby (Out Of Our Own Back Yards), talk about the crowd funding equity raise, how you can get your slice of the Ooooby pie and where we might be popping up next.

Bailey Peryman and Matt Morris will also speak about the work of the Edible Canterbury and the Food Resilience Network.


  • Pete Russell

    We've been working for the last 7 years to bring Ooooby from an exciting idea into a thriving organisation. Come along and hear the story so far and the vision moving forward.

  • James Samuel

    Ooooby is ready to grow and scale - naturally. I'm delighted to have been part of the early conversations and see great things for this inspiring social enterprise.
