Richard Watson and started growing seed when I was given what was later to be renamed the Benhorn carrot, this was in the late 1980's and two years later I joined up with Kay Baxter who had only just set up koanga Gardens as a volunteer heirloom seed grower.

Through the 1990's I leased land in around Rangiora area which helped build my knowledge and understanding of the complexities of growing seed but it wasn't till myself and my family bought 5.1 hectares in the Amuri basin that I was able to increase both the number and the volume of seed lines.
