  • Description

    Description

    My home is on a small acreage in the north of Northland New Zealand. It is a little like being on an island as there is sea in three directions and therefore the winds and weathers are variable. This project is young as I have resided here for the last three and a half years yet the old kauri house has been standing here for between eighty and ninety years. I have a commitment to Bio Dynamic agriculture practises and the embodiment of the humanity in so far as the potential of folk being and working together. There are gardens and orchards in different stages of development there is a big push to get the volunteers accommodation established in the old shed which needs renovation. Music and singing songwriting are very important to me. Home grown food is also very important.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have hosted willing volunteers on organic farms for over twenty years. This has made me reasonably flexable in outlook and language skills. Learning about organic and biodynamic agriculture as well as sustainable lifestyles.

    The area has beautiful beaches and walking tracks. To make the most of time off push bikes or own transport would be best. I am a non smoker...I eat fish and wild meats however mainly vegetarian. I am exploring a term Indigenous (of the land) by choice as a lifestyle.
