"Project Apōpō offered valuable hands-on services to move a stream rehabilitation pilot project for Whangārei District Council from initiation to closure. She was responsive and efficient with good connections in the District.


Natalie showed a dedication to carrying out the project in a way that would be fair to suppliers, provide best value-for-money and achieve optimal community/ sustainability outcomes. Hope to work with Natalie again."
