  • Description

    Description

    Our property is on the shore of the Waimea Inlet near Mapua. The estuary is home to many wading birds and much of our work is revegetating the estuary margin. We are part of Department of Conservation/Community project to increase numbers of several endangered wading birds by restoring their natural habitat and trapping predators. There is also lots to do in our orchard and vegetable garden. We have 3 holiday cottages on the property, and occasionally helpers need to assist with various tasks around the cottages and helping tourists.
