Gecko supports 22 neighbourhoods through the Sustainable Neighbourhoods Programme in West Auckland. It is currently setting up four new Living Neighbourhoods in NW Auckland. We work in partnership with communities to remove weeds, plant trees and encourage bush regeneration. Neighbourhoods collectively decide what they want to achieve - with goals that are not only environmental but also with benefits to the community. Gecko also runs plant and weed ID workshops.
