ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at how DairyNZ Whangarei/West consulting officer Helen Moodie and her husband Todd Hamilton are helping increase the population of Whangarei Heads in New Zealand. The local has suffered a decline in its numbers due to the development of urban, lifestyle and farming areas. However, since the couple has established its Backyard Kiwi project, the population has since climbed to about 400. According to Hamilton, their success was due to community support and education.
