Te Kākano Aotearoa Trust is a Wānaka community-based, non-profit plant nursery that raises plants of local origin for native habitat restoration.

Te Kākano believes that this network of people fosters healthy community spirit and involving people in looking after our lands and waterways creates strong bonds to the environment and to others. The organisation operates entirely on a volunteer and donation basis. So, whether you’re a local or visitor, there are many ways that you can help.

Better yet – get involved in one of their weekly community planting sessions!
