We are a home-schooling family with 8 children, 5 still at home, 4 of them school-age. Both parents came from Germany as backpackers, and met here, so our home language is German. Our lifestyle block is home to 2 goats, 4 geese (and 5 goslings), a flock of domestic ducks, between 30 and 40 hens, and of course many wild birds, rabbits and the tiny creatures of fields, woods and duck-pond. An old apple, apricot and peach orchard and a young walnut grove are also part of our little paradise. Amazingly, though situated just off SH1, our place affords a cosy sense of privacy, as it nestles behind an old pine-tree shelter belt and is lined with a row of poplar trees along the rest of its border. The township of Amberley is 5 min away by car or 1 hour by foot, where you can do all essential shopping, go to the bank, petrol station, gym, second hand shop or hairdresser. Rangiora, the next larger center of North Canterbury, is 20 min away, and central Christchurch 40 min.
