Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
Kahikatea Farm is a 16 acre farm designed on ‘permaculture’ principles. At Kahikatea Farm we are growing our soils, growing a forest garden, and growing our children and their future. We are growing our knowledge, and growing our community. In our nursery we grow a huge range of certified organic plants - over 200 varieties of annual and perennial vegetable seedlings, edible and medicinal herbs, companion plants, flowers, shrubs and trees. We focus on perennials and self-sowing annuals which are multi functional, hardy, and contribute to a diverse and resilient garden or farm which provides fertility and pest control from within, and which can provide a forage system of food, medicine, fuel, dyes, craft and construction material for you and future generations as well as a place of beauty and biodiversity. Otherwise known as food forest plants. We also grow microgreens for local cafes and restaurants, and run permaculture and gardening courses and workshops. We formerly supplied organic veges to shops and cafes but are now trying to move away from annuals.
