De Novo Barn – “A New Beginning…..A New Day”

Our symbol is the Koru, the shape of a spiral which depicts the opening of a fern frond. It represents new life, new beginnings, positive change, harmony, peace, tranquility as well as awakening. It represents hope for the future. It also depicts the expression of affection and the bond between two people.
