[01 September/Stuff NZ] Kaitiaki Farm Eco School is based on a five hectare property and is run by Dani Lebo and her husband Nelson Lebo. The farm has up to six interns staying at a time on their eight-week permaculture design programmes, run throughout the year. Mrs Lebo states that the biggest focus on the farm is education, and it has a range of systems including goats for milking, bees for honey, a fruit orchard of 250 trees with ducks and chickens foraging underneath, as well as olives, avocados, kunekune pigs and an area dedicated to the regeneration of native bush. The Lebos have a market garden producing a main crop of organic seed garlic, which they sell online. The interns at the Eco School are often professionals and come mostly from overseas, many of them vegan. Schools and preschools also make regular visits to the farm. The Lebos dedicate one day a week for home-schooled students and run holiday programmes. Along with the interns and children, the Lebos do permaculture property design, workshops on healthy homes, gardening and sustainability, trying to educate as many people as possible.
