You haven't mentioned any NZ permaculture contacts.  I would recommend
Joe Polaisher, 588 Matakana Valley Rd, RD5, Warkworth ph 9 422 7432 / 7708

Further north try Jo Maniapoto, PO Box 4204, Wanganui, 6 345 4993 / 6142 fx
or Hans Holtman, RD 1, Onerahi, Northland 9 436 0088

There are probably many others but these people I have met personally.
Cheers Rene
