Share in nature’s revival with us. We’re a sustainable living one-stop shop.

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

Based on Auckland’s North Shore, we lead native bush regeneration and grow native plants, provide conservation volunteering opportunities at our nursery and in our wider restoration projects. We also offer practical education and organise events about sustainable living for different age groups. We have an online shop where you can buy bulk plants, offer a range of corporate sponsorship opportunities, curtain recycling and a membership option.

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

We have a range of ways to get involved. Join our volunteering whānau to get up close with nature. From bush restoration, weeding and trapping to growing and planting, many hands make light work. 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 about sustainable living and environmental sustainability. Feel great while learning with others and helping our natural world. Learn new sustainable living skills at our Auckland's North Environment Centre 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.

No matter where you're at in your sustainable living journey, we're happy to share and learn.
