Jodi will present an overview of Roebuck Farm’s grazing work including access to land through leasing and their work with other graziers both local and international.

North is a building design pioneer in New Zealand using low impact natural materials including straw bales, unstabilised earthen walls and lime plasters.
He received the award at the International Straw Building Conference: Natural Building in the 21st Century in Methven, Canterbury in front of 200 delegates from 15 countries.
"I was utterly blown away, I wasn't expecting it at all," North says.
