If you have completed Monkey Madness II:
You can get all greegrees (except for the Ancient gorilla greegree) simply by speaking to Zooknock (he lives directly north of the Gnomeball entrance).
The Ancient gorilla greegree can be made by finding the Monkey skull on ape atoll under the temple and bringing it to Zooknock.
