He co-founded New Zealand’s first permaculture eco-village in 1986, and is a foundation member of the New Zealand Sustainable Business Network.  Malcolm is a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to business, conservation and philanthropy. In 1993, Malcolm started an ethics-based business (ecostore) with the long-term goals of funding Fairground Foundation. The ecostore range now exceeds 100 products. It is available in all New Zealand supermarkets and health stores, and in over 1,800 supermarkets in Australia, USA and Asia.

Jennifer Watson  Jennifer joined Fairground Foundation in July 2016. She's passionate about playing her part to do great things for our communities and the environment. Jennifer loves to travel (having recently returned from globe trotting through 20 countries in 8 months) and enjoys adventure closer to home by taking advantage of all that New Zealand has to offer.  Born in the U. S., Jennifer first came here on holiday as a three year old and now proudly holds citizenship. She can't wait to get stuck in and help with worthy projects in New Zealand, her chosen home.
