CSA - Community Supported Agriculture
local involvement in farm productivity
An ethos of low-impact living is backed up by various conditions and restrictions. Non-toxic building materials, natural finishes, permeable surfaces, stormwater collection, screen planting, recessive building locations.
Community Supported Agriculture connects people directly with the productivity of the farm. By investing upfront at the start of the season people receive a share in the produce of the farm. It’s healthy, organic, educational and fun!
Zones for native plant regeneration will diversify the ecology of the property. Species common to the valley will be planted – toetoe, kanuka, flax, matai, rimu etc.
A wider fenced buffer zone along the stream creates significant areas for planting appropriate natives. This encourages a wildlife corridor through the property and adds aesthetic values.
