Native Nelson Garden - The Fishers

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:25 pm on 3 September 2015

When Martyn and Su Fisher moved in to their 21-hectare overgrown bush property in Nelson, they arrived with one hand trowel and very little knowledge of the huge conservation task ahead of them. Almost 12 years on, and the native block of bush has been restored, pests have been eliminated and a broad range of vegetation and rare plants are abundant. Now the couple are looking to sell the property, and need someone with the right skills and know-how to continue on their good work.
