Resilience. How do we build it into our communities? Can you build resilience from the ground up? Well Craig Ambrose from Motueka, NZ thinks so, as do many like minded people throught the world. Originally a Melbourne lad, Craig moved to NZ to seek a resilient community.
Craig and his son William at Atamai Village Commons
A short distance from the small town of Motueka, in the northern part of New Zealand’s South Island, Atamai Village is well underway in its goal to provide homes, food and economic security for 50 families in a well-planned, permaculture-inspired development.
