Purposeful Young Professionals
After 3 years our tenant has moved out after buying his own land.
Our 2 bedroom cottage is available on our property in Upper Hutt.
It would suit a single person or a couple, perhaps moving home needing somewhere to live while they find a home and make a life. Or you want to try living of the land for a while, see what its like.
Its a super tranquil place, you can feed the chickens and garden as much as you like. Grow your own food, take from the orchard.

Intersect events are pretty special. The people that go are generally amazing. You can trust that anyone that it occurs to you to speak to will be interesting and friendly. Last year was the first time I attended any Intersect events, and I was hooked. Here’s what we got up to in Wellington, on the first Monday of the month:
We started off the year with a bang of Be Amazed events. The idea is to present a couple of amazing things, which sets the scene for amazing conversations…Continue

I’m reflecting on the differences between meaning and purpose. We all create meaning through the stories that we tell ourselves. I’m doing this right now. The word “meaning” has roots in an older word related to mind. So the…Continue
Ethics is an important part of sustainability, and many of us think business' emphasis on self-interest is a bad thing.
After the coverage of recent international financial crises and the Occupy Movement, and some jumbled thoughts about ethics and sustainability, I felt the need to learn a bit more about ethics in business.
Unfortunately, I'm a designer, not an ethicist or economist. I had to go away and do some research, so here's a summary of what I…

It's really great to live according to our values.
If we're worried about climate change, it's great to choose to bike or take the train, or think twice about unnecessary journeys.
If we're concerned about waste, it's important to do our bit and reduce or recycle that waste.
Choosing to do good - try and do less bad, as by our very nature humans weigh on our planet - is important, and can also help us do better. Every bit does count.
But it's also important, I…Continue

On a sunny Saturday morning this 26 November, you can wander down the road, pop into a polling booth, and contribute to our democracy.
(First, though, you've got to be enrolled to vote. You can check that out here.)
In that booth there’ll be two bits of paper.
One bit of paper is orange. That’s to vote in the election. You’ll be asked two things. Firstly, what person you want to represent your electorate in…Continue

Think quite a few people have swallowed a fly or two while riding their bikes, willingly or unwillingly, but this goes a bit further: Girl meets Bug. I have read a lot about entomophagy in the news recently, and there seems to be a real benefit in raising small life stock, e.g. higher protein to feed ratio compared to beef.

To learn more about Eco-State, we would like to share the principles, facts and concepts that our organization was founded upon and continues to uphold.
Over the past year I've been making my own skincare products. I was really enjoying a few natural products I'd picked up but the price tag that came with them wasn't so enjoyable. After bits of research I worked out how to make a few products, and these days I can make all my skincare I use. I'm working on make-up, but that's another story. Since doing this I…Continue

First came the re-using of bottles, all sorts of…Continue
