Valley Gatherings is a beautifully designed book showcasing the people, lifestyle and produce of the Clarence Valley. Illustrated with over 300 stunning colour photographs, it is a beautiful addition to any coffee table or cookbook collection.

Just after midnight on November 14th 2016, just days before the book was due to go to print, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hit the upper east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, severely affecting the Clarence Valley. With huge support from all over the country, the process of rebuilding farms, homes and livelihoods has begun. Every little bit helps, and by purchasing your copy of Valley Gatherings, you are contributing $3 to the rejuvenation of the community at Clarence.


Genevieve is a kiwi girl, who feels lucky to have grown up on a high country farm in the Clarence Valley. 

She wears many hats, and has been a raft guide, ski patroller, super yacht chef, vineyard worker and marketing coordinator to name just a few ways she's made a living so far. Genevieve has always loved cooking, and working as a raft guide on the Clarence River has enabled her to experiment with top quality local produce in an outdoor setting, right in her own back yard. 

It comes as no surprise that with her love of beautiful books and magazines, and a design degree under her belt, Genevieve decided to launch in to this project to showcase her beloved home region. A year in the making and many more in the planning and dreaming stages, this book is certainly a passion project which she looks forward to sharing with you.
