"After moving home to Tauranga, I felt like I could take a breath and let the city stress go. I also made the choice when moving back to not work a 40+ hour week. I wanted to have time to grow my own vegetables, to study and to be responsive to kaupapa and the needs of my whānau." - Naomi Reese, Contractor
