OUTDOOR CLASSROOM REQUIRED

As part of our learning experience for our outdoor holiday and after school activities we have been using two very old (over 50yrs) scout/army style tents. However after a several years of being exposed to the elements, they are now beyond repair. Our wish list has included a Tipi or yurt from which to base our activities and to extend to hosting overnight stays for our wonderful volunteers.

Jaia Tipis make a 5 metre tipi that would suit our needs perfectly. Jaia Tipis are New Zealand made!

We have just learned of a friend selling one in as new condition, including floor and potbelly fire for less than half the cost of a new one!! Naturally we would love to take advantage of such a great deal and provide a new welcoming space for our next holiday programme beginning 16 April 2018.

Food Workshops

Fermented foods used on a daily basis restore all the good bacteria and organisms that we need in our gut and intestinal tract, promoting friendly bacteria.  These foods are what are known as functional foods and are very probiotic.
