This week at Spirit Festival, MudWood and MamaZing! At Kumeu Showgrounds Thursday through Sunday. Join us for a great gathering of spirit, music, dance, and creations.
Plant Friends Memory Card Game is here! Created by Amira Mudfaery MudWood. 18 of her plant illustrations are featured in a game fun for all ages! Great for learning to identify beneficial plants and a fun non-competetive version of the traditional memory game. A booklet included gives instructions and some tips for the use of a couple of common plants. Plant Friends can be found as one of the gratitude gifts under the MudWood Natural Living and Learning Centre crowdfunding link on the Home page. Proceeds raised will be used to fund educational programs to help spread the knowledge of plants. Exciting!!
We are working on our daily Blogging and will be starting in December with recipes, exciting and inspiring information, photos and more! At the moment we are busy with the new family members of MudWood.
As well as Spring planting, MamaZing things, and new developments at MudWood. We are looking forward to sharing new recipes with you all. And are updating the website again. Check out all of our tabs for Kombucha, Mushroom, and Herb information. MudWood section for videos and songs. And our Art gallery. Spring has sprung here in New Zealand!

Our proprietary blends assist with all sorts of different things. Order a MamaZing Mushroom blend online today!
Has been awhile since our last update due to internet issues and time lack. MamaZing has had some major growth spurts the past few months. And many changes! The MamaZing family has spread out. We are back to life with the two of us, 5 horses, 3 cats, and 2 ducks. MamaZing Kombucha is spreading like SCOBY cultures and refilling an immense amounts of bottles. We are pleased with the organic growth of MamaZing and the way we can spread the goodness of well-made, quality Kombucha elixir as well as herbal medicine. Thank you to all of our devoted Zingers for bringing your bottles in and filling them and yourselves with MamaZing goodness!
MamaZing Delectables are now found in their own wee shop next to the MudWood Art Gallery and MamaZing Apothecary at The Old Packhouse Market in Kerikeri. Organic, gluten free, vegan Chocolates, cakes, hot drinks, and other medicinal foods.
MamaZing Kombucha has a full tap room at The Old Packhouse. Fill your empty MamaZing bottles, grab a cup, or visit the growing Apothecary for a tonic or Mushroom potion!
The MudWood Art Gallery is also growing! A new case full of jewelry and sculpture, as well as walls full of canvas and poster prints, shelves full of magical Art cards, and Hatty and Hatter’s Exquisite Hats!
We have been blown away by the support we have received for this. Some donations came in to our crowdfunding, and one very generous donor offered a loan to cover the remainder of the land costs. Therefore, we have changed the campaign to ongoing sponsorship of MagicLand MudWood for land projects. Please feel free to be a part of this land and its happenings by donating or setting up a monthly subscription! A crowdfunding campaign will start in the next month for a MamaZing Kombuchery/ Mushroomery so that MamaZing can grow and expand. Check back for details. Until then, so many thanks for all support, including positive energy and love offered! We are feeling truly blessed!
Here at MudWood MagicLand, a MamaZing tribe has been forming. During this time of Free Up, (lockdown as the government calls it), we have been living cooperatively on the land and beginning to reform the MamaZing team. From 2 (and sometimes 3), we have become 7.
The garden and the land has had a great input of energy the past month. From building a pig proof fence, to building compost and preparing and planting beds, it has been a beautiful evolution over this Autumn time.
We are sharing a meal roster, collective food purchasing, and healthy living. We share the house, although a few have external sleeping spaces. Meetings about how to create the visions we share and inspiring creative time are a regular happening here.
The CrowdFunding campaign has had awesome input and needs more! Please check out our crowdfunding campaign on our Home page for details.
This quiet time for MamaZing has given us time to look at things differently for the future. MamaZing Kombucha is flowing and online orders for MamaZing and Mushrooms are growing.
MamaZing Mushroom blends are now on the website!
If we don’t ask, we never receive the answer.
We are asking for HELP. The land that we brew and bottle MamaZing Kombucha on, that we get our beautiful Spring water to make the Kombucha from, and that we live on is in immediate need of refinancing. We have been trying all year and then some with banks, mortgage brokers and second tier lenders. Their answer has been no due to reasons we can’t relate to. We need loans, donations, land partners, or investors. As soon as possible.
We have been trying to start crowd funding campaigns and are working on this for business and land projects. But time is restrictive and it seems to take ages to set up. Coming soon though.
MamaZing is buzzing and growing fast. We can’t currently keep up with stock as it is in such high demand. This land has so much potential for so many things to happen and people to learn and experience on. We plan retreat roundhouses, (Jo builds roundhouses), medicinal and subtropical gardens (We already grow bananas, some herbs, and are experienced growers of medicine, sculpture gardens, a new Kombuchery roundhouse, and an education centre.
We need the funds to refinance so we can stay here and do this!! We landed her in the Faraway North of New Zealand on this land for many reasons. And we are meant to be here. If we have to uproot everything, MamaZing will suffer drastically and may not survive. And we will also suffer. This is a call for financial assistance. This is a call for support. This is a call for a MamaZing team to form.
The investment potential is pretty awesome if you are looking for something to put your money into to help grow. The land share potential is awesome, as the land is 50 acres and has multiple house sites. (And Jo builds roundhouses and teaches. See MudWood Shelters FB page or our website) The education and sharing potential on this land is great. The growing potential is amazing as most of the land is north facing. And we are subtropical. Anyone that can assist? Please message us. This is an immediate need. Thanks much. Arohanui. Jo and Amira The Papa and Mama of the Zing.
Here are some photos of this magical place. Please help us hold this space for all of those who will come and experience it and those will experience from afar!
