Kaipātiki Project is an innovative eco-hub, growing a sustainable future for people and nature. We do this by empowering people, inspiring connection with nature and enabling sustainable living.
Along with over 800 volunteers annually, we run a thriving native plant nursery where we grow 40,000+ native plants every year and plant them back in the local reserves. We facilitate forest, stream and estuary regeneration days, promote zero waste and encourage growing your own food.
We started in 1998, when a small group of enthusiastic volunteers weeded a local reserve to prevent the small forest fragment degrading further. Soon the neighbours were regularly volunteering their time and energy restoring local bush reserves.
We have steadily grown over the years, and as north Auckland’s only eco-hub, we continue to inspire communities to restore local bush reserves and live sustainably.
Pest Free Kaipātiki
Pest Free Kaipātiki Restoration Society (PFK) exists to restore and protect the natural environment of Kaipātiki.
We’re a local umbrella organisation that works with, and connects the community and partner organisations, through activities aimed at native habitat restoration and protection.
We’re passionate about creating a world where our native habitat and community are interwoven and flourish together.
Following te ao Māori principles of kaitiakitanga and whanaungatanga, we help build stronger, healthier, better connected, resilient communities and neighbourhoods that are more attractive to kereru, tui and other native wildlife.
Get in touch with us to find out how you can make a difference.
PFK can connect you with an existing restoration group in your area, or help you to set up a new group to care for a place special to your community.
