New Zealand at Wharepuke Gardens eco-lodge & Food Cafe

In this segment on our Organic Living with the Hippy Gourmet tour of New Zealand we're in the magical Bay of Islands area in Kerikeri! Here we visit with Tania Booth one of the many family owners of Wharepuke Accommodations. We also meet Tania's dad Robin Booth who is in charge of the lush and beautiful Wharepuke gardens. Our tour continues up at the Print Studio at Wharepuke where we meet Mark Graver, resident artist and also co-owner of the eco-lodge. In the organic food garden we find Paul Goldfinch who leads us to our interview with his son-in-law Colin Ashton the owner and chef of Food at Wharepuke restaurant. If it seems like there's a lot going on at Wharepuke in Kerikeri that's because there is! All wonderful people, great hospitality, laid back cottages, stunning gardens and some of the best food on our whole tour of New Zealand!
