Currently Daniel and I are calling “New Zealand Now” for questions in regards to immigration. Since our newly inaugurated United States president has been sworn in, there has been a spike in potential individuals whom want to relocate to New Zealand.
So, right now we are waiting on the line in the queue for our turn to have certain questions concerning when we should be applying and a few other curiosities we have.
On a side note:
Sorry about not updating the Butterfly Forests Homestead Blog for sometime. Life has been quite busy lately and winter in New England is not the best for creating.. Best put: it can effect one at times in productiveness if they are sensitive to gloomy weather. 😉 🙂
But no fear! 😀 I am also in the mist of transitioning into a better job. 😀 No more retail “profession” for me! 😉 😛 I shall hopefully start working with children in an after school program. 🙂 After we have established the Butterfly Forest Homestead, we would like to have children visit with their parents/ guardians and explore.. learn about what we do. 🙂 ❤ I want kids to come into the Butterfly Sanctuary supervised and/or have a visitor teacher who is an expert in butterfly care and conservation. The visitor or myself, will show/teach the little ones:
1.) About the many fascinating elements of what a butterfly is.
2.) A basic presentation (verbal and visual) development of the butterfly’s metamorphosis from egg to adult.
3.) How important butterflies are to the environment’s overall well being, as a species and benefits to mother natures health.
4.) How you can help strengthen native butterfly species and what flowers/plants you can plant in your backyard for butterflies which they prefer as food and habitat.
Other areas of the Butterfly Forests Homestead shall have interactive lessons in mind. For example, visiting the silkie chickens, quails, herbal gardens, food forests, flower gardens (both medicinal, edible, and simply for the butterflies, hummingbirds and bees) and also small groups can visit the small rare dairy rawhiti goats. 🙂
