Inspiring people through sharing knowledge and getting our hands in the soil is at the heart of our work. We offer programmes for children, workshops for teachers and learning sessions for the wider community. With a focus on bringing people together, connecting them with each other and the land, we aim to share our passion, joy and respect for native plants and ecosystems.
Our ‘Educate for Nature’ programme aims to connect children and young people with their land throughout their school years through impactful hands-on activities. Participants learn through experience and participation and make meaningful contributions to improving their local environment and native habitats in Wānaka and the wider region.
We love supporting our community of teachers with resources, professional learning and advice to embed local, seasonal and experiential learning for our young people in Wānaka.
Our education team is part of a collaborative group of local environmental educators, including Enviroschools, WAI Wānaka, Otago Regional Council, Wao Summit and many more. This ensures we work effectively and can offer teachers the best advice, equipment and learning available.
For The Community
We aim to organise regular learning sessions for our volunteers and the wider public. We also work with other groups to reach the community at large and share our knowledge on native habitats and native plants.
