For sustainable living, regenerating native biodiversity and learning opportunities about environmental sustainability, Kaipātiki Project makes it easy to live well within our Earth's limits.

Based on Auckland’s North, we run a thriving native plant nursery, facilitate native ngahere, streams & estuary regeneration, and provide conservation volunteering opportunities at our nursery, teaching garden and in our wider restoration projects. We also offer practical education, organise events about sustainable living for different age groups, and promote zero waste initiatives. We have an online shop where you can buy plants in bulk, offer a range of corporate volunteering & sponsorship opportunities, a membership option and welcome partnership collaborations.

We believe that by working together, we can restore our native plants, birds, bugs and fish and regenerate the planet.

Get involved. Join our volunteering whānau to get up close with nature, ranging from ngahere restoration, weeding, pest management, working with plants and edible garden. We have volunteering opportunities for businesses, individuals and families, schools and youth groups, and community groups. Connect with others who share your sustainable living values and purpose. Give back to the community and feel the wonder of making a difference to our local environment.

Learn new sustainable living skills at our Auckland's North EcoHub or at events and courses across the region. Our education and volunteering is practical and hands on - you’ll literally get your hands dirty!

People of all ages and abilities are welcome! We love bringing diverse groups of people together.
