Spectrum for 16 September 2012

From Spectrum, 12:10 pm on 16 September 2012

When Thomas and Mahrukh Stazyk purchased a disused dairy farm overlooking the Kaipara Harbour in 2003, they had a vision to establish a special retreat for people to relax and rejuvenate. However, after watching more and more nearby properties subdivided for development, the couple decided they would convert the farm back into native forest, eventually gifting it to the community. Spectrum's Lisa Thompson meets the couple who are planting for future generations.
