Forest and stream restoration with Kaipatiki Project

Kaipatiki Project’s forest and stream restoration work is focused on the Kaipatiki Catchment – the largest catchment on the North Shore. With help from hundreds of volunteers from the community, Kaipatiki Project plants thousands of trees each year. Grown from eco-sourced seeds in our own native plant nursery, we are currently producing around 25,000 new native plants annually. Just under half our income is self-generated through the delivery of services or the selling of stuff – namely trees and composting systems.

Its an important part of the work of our Centre which is run by and for local people to help strengthen our communities and provide a sustainable future for all.
