Meet our Presenters

Ruud Kleinpaste - Saturday 25th March Only

Born in Indonesia, raised and educated in the Netherlands and migrated to New Zealand in 1978 with an MSc (Hons) in silvicuture, animal ecology and conservation  from Wageningen University.  Entomology was always an important hobby that later became part of his media persona: the Bugman.  Ruud studied kiwi in Waitangi forest and worked as scientist (entomology) with the Ministry of Agriculture for 14 years, before tackling the world of media, communication and consultancy on his own.

 

Xanthe White - Saturday 25th March only

Xanthe White has worked as a landscape designer in New Zealand for 20 years. Her studio Xanthe White Design has worked on a broad range of commissions from private gardens to large public spaces. New Zealand’s landscape is influenced by indigenous and colonial history and an isolated island ecology. The studio’s practice focuses on creating engagement between the natural world and people. This involves balancing conservation values with the cultural attachments, and a tradition of food production.

Xanthe has won multiple awards including a Silver-Gilt and Silver medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and multiple Gold, Silver and Supreme Design awards at other international garden shows including the Gardening World Cup in Japan, Singapore Garden Festival and Ellerslie Flower Show. She is a Fellow of the Garden Design Society of New Zealand.

Xanthe is a regular contributor to magazines such as the The New Zealand Gardener and The New Zealand Listener and is a frequent guest on radio shows such as Nine to Noon on Radio New Zealand National.  She has published three books including Organic Vegetable Gardening, The Natural Garden and her latest book, The Good Dirt, which explores the relationship between soil and the landscape. 

Nicole Bostock - Make It! Marquee and the Mahu Project pavilion
Nicole’s journey in wellness in accordance with the ethos "food is medicine and medicine is food” started in the 90’s with an organic home delivery business, the study of herbal medicine under Isla Burgess and a burgeoning interest in Ayurveda and Yoga which she later went on to study in depth. She is conscious of the escalating demand of herbal medicines and where ever possible advocates using local plants as the ideal choice. With this in mind and the desire to encourage an organic plant based diet including edible weeds she co-founded Plantmedicine on Waiheke Island where they grow, harvest and make Epicurean Tonics for everyday good health. The celebration of Edible Gardens is a reminder of a fundamental Ayurvedic philosophy 'when diet is wrong, medicine is of no use; when diet is correct medicine is of no need.' 


Gemma Wynn Lewis - Make It! Marquee Sunday 26 March 2017
Gemma was our very own (Hawkes Bay born and bred) NZ Masterchef 2015 contestant.  Gemma has recently moved back to Hawke's Bay after living in Melbourne for 14 months. She is now working as a consultant for Consultant Catering (consultantcatering.co.nz) who provide expert support to organisations offering onsite food service and catering to students, staff, tourists and travelers in non-public dining rooms and public cafes.

Between projects, Gemma is available as a contract Food Technologist and hopes to launch a new range of slow cooked meats.

Nic Parkes - In The Mahu Project pavilion Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th 
Owner of the Weleda Pharmacy Ltd. Nic's training as a traditional pharmacist 30 years ago, was a springboard into wider possibilities for health and wellness.  Nic is deeply connected with the land. She manages her six hectares of garden and farm under permaculture principles with an emphasis on using biodynamic preparations and methods. 

Her integrative approach to health focuses on an individual finding their balance using everything from nutrition and lifestyle right through to Anthroposophic and, where needed allopathic, medicines.  

Kate McLeay 
My Mum did Yoga & meditated so we had this in our life growing up. 
At the time my bother and I mostly giggled.  Alot.  Secretly however we liked the way it made her less sad when she missed her city friends after we moved to the farm.  I fully stepped into my yoga obsession 16 years ago when I lived in Uganda for a decade.  I was a school principal, busy mother and part time party girl. I got intensely stressed and badly out of shape.  Uganda was full of yogis, meditators and healers and I soon gave up my day job and started training.  I have't stopped.  I love and live my yoga practice. I am so grateful for the pockets of peace and calm it has bought to my life and the tools it gives me to find more UNITY - which is the definition of yoga for me.  It gives me great joy to share these precious tools.

Di Reefman

Updates from the earth bag and cob wall

The natural build led by EIT tutor Aaron Williams and a team of students, will show the construction, materials and practices of the past that are now being re-learnt as we head toward a more sustainable and gentle way of building for our futures.  Natural or earth buildings are built using mostly non-industrial, minimally processed, locally available, and renewable materials and can also utilize recycled or salvaged materials.

Mell Anderson, from the Bostock New Zealand Edible Garden Show, herself a natural build enthusiast, is being 

guided by Pat Mawson, local mud guru and local Strawhouse builder and a generous supply of materials from Webster’s Hydrated Lime Co has ensured the project can go ahead.
