Friends of O'Connor's Bush, Greytown

A group of people committed to protecting and restoring O'Connor's Bush, a portion of uncut lowland forest and a protected Historic Reserve in Greytown. We hold a monthly working bee, and carry out weed/pest control and planting. Greytown was the first place in New Zealand to celebrate Arbor Day in 1890, so this area is very important to protect and share sustainably.

Eco-Action Nursery Trust

Eco Action eco-source native plant seed from Travis Wetland. Eco-sourcing means plants are adapted to their local environment and are more likely to grow well. Plants grown provide year-round food and habitat for native birds and other fauna like insects, lizards and invertebrates.

Drinkable Rivers

Drinkable Rivers is the moonshot vision of Christchurch entrepreneur and passionate environmental advocate, Michael Mayell. The aspiration is to bring together individuals and groups who are already doing great work on New Zealand's waterways to create a movement which will restore our rivers to their natural balance and beauty.
