ooooby Box Scheme - community supported agriculture idea transplanted from New Zealand to Ireland

The ooooby (out of our own back yard) idea originated in New Zealand.  I first heard of it via the In Transition 1.0 movie about the Transition Towns movement.  This video shows a group implementing the idea in Ireland as a community supported agriculture system that's also a gardening training facility.

Part of this implementation is that backyard growers can sell their excess through the ooooby store.
