8 years ago one of Lissa Davies' daughters suggested that they move and live on their Whanau Papakainga, 8 years later she says there is no wher else she wants to be.
The main reason for the move was to fulfill her Grandmother's wish of living off the land, but sadly wasn't able to achieve.
With the help of her nephew Sean Malcom and his partner Frida Keegan they created are Mara garden / Food Forest.
They are using a growing method called syntropics which groups different plants and trees to provide an environment which will see the whanau reaping the benefits for the next 40 years and beyond.
The dream is to provide food for Whanau and the wider community whilst living harmoniously off the land.
