The Ahuriri nursery is a joint Department of Conservation/Forest and Bird project that supplies native plants for a number of local community planting projects. 8 volunteers attend the nursery on an as required basis, usually each Friday morning over the busy spring /summer period. Output is between 4000 and 5000 plants annually. These are mostly easy to grow pioneering species that are ecosourced from within Hawkes Bay.

Plant species grown include a number of threatened plants for local restoration projects. These include kakabeak, Pittosporum obcordatum, Teucridium parvifolium, Olearia gardneri and pingao
