Originally I trained as a pharmacist. Over the 30+ years working in that field more & more time has been spent researching and prescribing 'natural therapies'.

My personal quest to beat dis-ease really opened my eyes to what we are doing to ourselves and our planet. This led me to study sustainable agriculture, bio-dynamics and permaculture design and try to lead a simpler and more balanced lifestyle.

From that ‘Healing Lands’ has grown:

After finishing the Certificate in Organic Growing course at Christchurch Polytech I bought a 3 acre block in Central Hawkes Bay and wanted a name and logo that encompassed my vision -  

‘Healing Lands’ is a double entendre

  •  The way we work with  the land is in a healing manner
  •  We use the land to heal people in a 3-fold manner - spiritual interaction of hands in the soil; the food that is produced; and the plants and animal products that are used in the Healing Lands products .

The process involved in arriving at the logo is detailed in the table below

 In 2005 I moved to15 acres that had been subdivided off a large conventional sheep and beef farm. There is a man-made dam but the block was pretty devoid of trees and the fencing not conducive to one woman (with the help of 2 fox terriers not interested in being trained as stock dogs)  farming.

Always a work in progress, our 15 acres is ever developing, with the help of the cosmos, along biodynamic and permaculture principles  with the aim of being as sustainable as practicably possible.
