My husband and I have lived on this property, 'Ribbonwood' for the past 35 years. We built the main house and over the years created a very special garden setting near the water. I am a writer, and work from home and a garden enthusiast. Mark is a forestry ecology professional. He has helped create the tree filled landscapes on the property and in the surrounding bay area. He is also an enthusiastic owner and sailer of his traditional boats in the Lyttleton harbour.
