We have a new website, a mix of all the great rural stories and advice you’ll find in NZ Lifestyle Block, and our sister magazine NZ Life & Leisure. Check out www.thisnzlife.co.nz and one of the amazing people you will meet is Polly Greeks. She blogs every second Wednesday on www.thisnzlife, and writes about her 15ha, bush-encased, off-grid Northland block where she lives with husband James and children Vita (4) and Zen (1), first in a rumpty caravan, now in their hand-built mud brick house. When it was time to start building the house, Polly couldn’t wait. But she did.
