Our box scheme was orginally called "OOOOBY" or Out of Our Own Back Yard (the name was inspired by a project in New Zealand) is a project focused on developing a local affordable, healthy food resource. We have partnered with other local producers for several years, and from this year we are now recommending you directly contact Hazel and Davi's farm in Ashford, Co Wicklow
OOOOBY has developed into a local group focused on local food education made up of volunteers that support local producers and customers with adminstration support from Carraig Dúlra and workers from the County Wicklow Partnership Tús programme.
Carraig Dúlra also runs a bullk-buying group for whole food or organic products not available localally or in Ireland. These can be ordered by email and pick up together or seperately from the vegetable box.
