From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:24 pm on 23 April 2013

A pair of keen horticulturalists from Southland are attracting international plaudits for a 'food forest' that's taken them more than two decades to grow. This 'food forest' is the oldest, and the best established example of its kind in the country, boasting an extensive and thriving eco-system including - but not limited to - hazelnuts, walnuts, chestnuts, peaches, pears, quinces, figs, locquats, ALL the berries, 65 varieties of apples, and 30 types of plum.
