Sandra Matthews

Catchment Community Group Facilitator


I am a hands on Farmer, accredited Facilitator and professional Coach.  I am a founding member of the Wharekopae River improvement project. It is crucial to engage as a collective those who know their land, so as to enable continual environmental sustainability improvements operating within profitable farming businesses.  Working as a collective to bounce ideas around and implement ideas will benefit the land and awa we are guardians of. You are not alone, we can accomplish something really special for the benefit of future generations..... together!
