Sephrah Edwards

Catchment Community Group Facilitator


Hi, I am Beef+Lamb NZ's Northern North Island's Catchment Co-ordinator, I am here to connect and help co-ordinate farmers and local communities from Auckland to Kaitaia who are interested in starting or maintaining a catchment group in their community.

My husband and I currently run a beef fattening block of around 400 head of cattle in the Wellsford area, while also working on a local sheep stud. 


I have a Bachelors degree with Honors in Soil Science from Lincoln University, studying a range of topics from farm management, freshwater management to plants and soils, with a PhD in Soil Science.


I am currently working as a Catchment Co-ordinator for B+LNZ, providing guidance and resources to give your group the momentum it needs to form an incorporated society and gain access to funding for realizing your collective catchment goals.

I am passionate about helping to facilitate farmer led groups coming together for the betterment of their community. I believe catchment community groups allow for the growth of financial, social, natural and human resources. Each group is different and based on the individual values and goals of that community.

Regions: Northland, Whangarei, Kaipara, Auckland
