We have had close association with the Earth Building Association of NZ and owe a real debt of gratitude to them for the pioneering work they have done in getting the building code for earth building in NZ approved. We hosted the annual conference for the Earth Building Ass 6 years ago as a way of showing our gratitude. We also need to mention the over 700 WWOOFers who have worked with us over the years since we started building. We are still in touch with many of them. In fact two families have decided to move to NZ as a result of their wwoofing adventure. We are in close touch with these two families and are helping in every way we can to make their transition smooth. We have visited many other ex wwoofers on our trips overseas, and many more have revisited us or sent family and friends to stay with us. We love being part of this amazing global community.
There are many others who have helped in so many ways, and make our role as business owner easier. Owning a business can be very lonely, and we have worked hard to build a small community of associates, contractors, and service industries we deal with who share our goals and have mutual trust and support for each other. This is what keeps small communities like Cambridge flourishing and happy places to be.
