From high school biology teacher and vice principal to eco tourism entrepreneur and author. My special guest, Tony Foster, on this Voices from the North interview has been all of these things and more.

Tony’s new book, Plant Heritage New Zealand, is discussed and he shares his unique insights on some special native New Zealand plants like Kawakawa, and how to make a relaxing tea from its leaves.

Tony runs Whangaroa Houseboat Holidays and guides hikes to Lane Cove from his home in Totara North.

Music includes From Small Things Big Things Grow by Australian songster Paul Kelly and Gillian Welch’s Everything is Free.

Radio host, inspirational speaker and health educator John Haines is the author of In Search of Simplicity: A True Story that Changes Lives, a startlingly poignant and inspiring real-life endorsement of the power of thought, belief and synchronicity in one’s life.

“In Search of Simplicity is a unique and awe-inspiring way to re-visit and even answer some of the gnawing questions we all intrinsically have about the meaning of life and our true, individual purpose on the planet. I love this book.”

“In Search of Simplicity is one of those rare literary jewels with the ability to completely and simultaneously ingratiate itself into the mind, heart and soul of the reader.”
