Our project website has gone live today after completing the writing of the story to date and illustrating this with some photos. We intend to add more photos as time goes by and will update and expand the site as a record of the overall project.
The About pages introduce you to us, to Tāne's Rest, and our philosophy for the project. There is also a short history of the property and the beginnings of the project and an introduction to Aldo Leopold's famous book, "A Sand County Almanac", which has been the inspiration for this blog. We thoroughly recommend this classic to everyone who is interested in sustainable land management
If you would like to stay up to date with An Uawa County Almanac you can subscribe to our RSS feed just below the Uawa County map on the right of this page.
The Milestones section is just that, a record of the key milestones along our journey. We have prepared these pages both as a record of the progress we have made but also as a resource for others who may be on the same trip. So far we have focused on the first steps of Fencing, Water, Shelter and Energy to establish ourselves on the property. These will be updated, enlarged and expanded as we make progress into the future.
We hope that readers will stay in touch either by visiting the site from time to time, or by using our Contact page. We also welcome comments on any of our blog posts.
This blog is the ongoing story of our piece of paradise on the East Cape we have named Tāne's Rest. Visit our About pages to read more about our project, and feel free to leave a comment on any of our posts.
Uawa County existed for 45 years from 1 December 1918 to 1 April 1964 before merging with Cook County. Click on the map to download a copy.
