A Rocha Manawatū
A Rocha Manawatū is the local branch of the New Zealand division of A Rocha, a Christian conservation organization that now exists in 20 countries. Its aim is to enhance care for the living world and its environment among all people worldwide. There are five branches in New Zealand.
A Rocha Manawatū grows native trees and shrubs from eco-sourced seed. This is done at their propagation unit in Longburn, where there are currently around 7000 seedlings. Seedlings are planted out at several sites including the Pit Park, and on a farm in the Pohangina valley, on land destined to become a QEII reserve.
Regular Working Bee: Second & fourth Sunday of each month, 1:30 - 3:30 pm at the Longburn nursery. New volunteers welcome; please get in touch by email or phone so the A Rocha team can give you directions if you would like to come along.
