2017 Spring Fair on our new land

Last weekends Spring Fair here in Motueka had been threatened with weather bombs and there was uncertainty whether to go ahead – the angels prevailed and lots of people wore gumboots. Check it out – we raised approx. $26,000 – now we just need $1.7 million to build the new school – Any takers?













As you can see we are creating a beautiful farm school with wonderful people and a joyful sense of community. Come and join us 🙂
