Tools arrives in New Zealand!!

In late March, Maureen Howard came to Tools and interviewed Stephen and Laura for her show, Eco Living in Action, on Otago Access Radio which aired on the 4th of May. Recently, she also published a short article about what we do along with some nice pictures she took while she was here.
