We are a community gardens in Oamaru-- a social and educational hub for sharing life skills across age, culture and gender. Our aim is to empower all members of our community with skills to grow and cook their own food.
This group is for those in the vicinity of Willowbank Scenic Reserve, Tawa, Wellington, who want to help to look after the ecology and heritage of the area, which is 5.5 ha in size. This means doing planting of native vegetation, looking after those plants, picking up litter, caring for the stream and the eels and other life within the stream, combating pests such as blackberry, broome, gorse, convovulus and whatever else is growing there, cherishing and enhancing the heritage and ecological values.
New Zealand is crazy beautiful. There aren't many places in the world where you can view a beach and a volcano while on the motorway to work! I don't ever want to take New Zealand for granted, and I definitely don't want the generations below me to miss out on being able to go 10 minutes down the road and finding a magical bush wonderland or a glistening, SAFE, beach.
Our aim is to bring back the birds by supplying rat and mouse traps to households and to support trapping in reserves.
A community group trapping pests in Pukerua Bay to help protect native birds, lizards, and invertebrates.

We are a friendly group of gardeners who meet twice a month at Innermost Gardens in Mount Victoria.
We have garden bees on the first and third Sunday of the month. The garden days help maintain and develop our orchard and shared beds, and provide a great opportunity to share gardening knowledge.
Private allotments are also available on request. All of our gardens follows permaculture principles.
Our vision is one where birds and other native wildlife flourish, and everyone works together to support our natural heritage. Pest Free Kaipatiki is a community led programme initiated by the Kaipatiki Restoration Network in consultation with the Kaipatiki Local Board and the Auckland Council's Parks, Biosecurity and Biodiversity departments.
