About Bob Corker

I have spent 15 years as a landscape contractor specialising in constructed wetlands, including large municipal sewage treatment ponds, suburban stormwater ponds and channels and the design and construction of used-water treatment systems for permaculture households.

I designed and developed the Kohatu Toa Eco-village in Kaiwaka, a small intentional community in Northland NZ, where I lived until 2007.

I am a co- founder of the Koanga Institute, (www.koanga.org.nz) and continue to follow a particular interest, within the Institute, of developing light earth building techniques and appropriate technologies for autonomous housing and simple living.

I have taught numerous Permaculture Design courses, including one with Geoff Lawton.

I am presently involved in the design and development of a 30 family rural village/intentional community near Wairoa, Northern Hawkes Bay, NZ.(www.communitylandtrusts.co.nz) and managing the building and appropriate technology research program for the Koanga Institute.
