Today we welcomed Jo Shanks as the new manager with a Mihi Whakatau by Ian the Trust's co-chair. Eco Centre Kaitāia is blessed to have Jo as the new manager and we invite you to pop into the centre to say Kia ora and meet her as she transitions into the role. Welcome Jo.
A little bit about Jo:
I have been an Environmental Educator for EcoSolutions for six years now, and love putting my lifelong hippy habits to use! I love doing upcycle workshops, or showing folks how composting and wormfarming are a fun way to feed our gardens AND reduce our impact on Ranganui by reducing greenhouse gases. I enjoy making natural plaster garden surrounds using the resources papatuanuku provides, or making beeswax lunchwraps to reduce our need for packaging. I also like showing folks how easy it is to make cheese, jam and preserves .. so basically I am a premature granny!! I also love music and painting in all my spare time!!!! As I will maintain an ongoing role with EcoSolutions, as well as my new role with you all I'm really looking forward to getting up to great eco activities together, increasing happiness while decreasing our impact on papatuanuku.
