Aotearoa Retreat Centre Project
events happening in June to celebrate this - if you’ve missed the details see the project website
are focussed around creating some baseline data - our starting point - in areas such as soil, water, climate and landscape.
We are beginning to explore a working relationship with Lincoln University, led by our farm group member Rainer
Hoffman, which thus far looks very promising. Our first adventures in this research realm came over Anzac weekend,
with honours Lincoln student Lulu Jordan leading a team of keen helpers on a soil sampling expedition - see details on
the project website: https://www.aotearoaretreatcentre.org/blog/soil-sampling-and-other-fun-on-the-farm
Much learning and planning about the farm will take place over our first 6-12 months on the land, so watch this space as we develop our ideas and look for input from the wider community.
