About Us

Hi, I’m Becks, I’m Mum to Alex and Frankie and married to my husband Chris.  We live in a small rural town in the beautiful Central Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

‘From Beneath the Kowhai Tree’ was inspired from watching my children play under our two Kowhai trees in our home garden in Napier when they were young. I believe children learn best from playing freely without adult interpretation, interference, and commentating, I still believe this even though my children are school age now.   

We moved to Central Hawkes Bay in 2020 after living in the city for 20 years, and part of our journey now is readjusting to life in rural New Zealand.

We are an outdoor family at heart and embrace learning through life and real living experiences.

Come join our journey here.

Becks.
