Our Environment Centre at 17 Lauderdale Road in Birkdale serves as our office, classroom and a meeting venue, holding up to 30 people. The centre can be booked for meetings for a small charge or in return for some volunteering!
Our main nursery is adjacent to our Environment Centre and the Engine Bay Community Plant Nursery is on Bomb Point Drive in Hobsonville Point.
Every year, we eco-source, propagate and pot up tens of thousands of native plants to help restore the bush for our native birds, animals and plants, and remove carbon from our atmosphere. Our community-driven, chemical-free kaupapa is part of our regenerative, whole system approach.
We welcome weekly volunteers at both nursery sites.
Planning sustainable building on home soil
We are excited about the decision by Kaipātiki Local Board to go full gas with a sustainable building renewal
for our Environment Centre.
The aspirational concept for a building large enough to realise the community’s goals of a bustling EnviroHub of learning, plus one that demonstrates zero waste de/construction and green building has been signed off.
Detailed design is expected to be completed in February with on-site construction commencing mid-2020.
We look forward to sharing more detail as it comes to hand. Please let us know if you would like to be involved with
this exciting project.
