Sharing with Students

Second-year Viticulture students from the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) who are interested in organic and biodynamic growing methods joined us for an afternoon of discussion and hands-on making of Cowpat Pit (right) and a compost heap (left). Sharing our techniques and philosophies with future stewards of the land with such hands-on activities gives them the opportunity to gather information and have experiences that will help them form their own opinions and shape how they will choose to interact with the land.
