Carol  and  David


The current theme of the Matakana Sculptural Habitat uses the natural elements on the 2.2ha property to create beautiful vistas and large natural sculptures using techniques that any gardener can undertake. It is the Baha’i philosophy of transformation that underpins the sculptures passage through the garden.

Wendy Marshall designed, and together with her husband Tony White, installed the sculptural content of the Habitat during the period 2006-2010.

In January 2016 Carol and David are priviledged to become the custodians of this wonderful spiritual garden environment, and the production of Proteas. Carol’s experience is in health offering an understanding of plant care and personal customer care. David has an engineering background and enables everything that happens in the habitat and the nursery. Having spent a lot of time in earlier years in the area we are pleased to be back.

The Habitat operates adjacent to the nursery area and is available for visits by individuals and interested groups. Making an appointment prior to the intended visit is requested.
