Growing & Greening New Zealand with you
Kauri Park is a passionate and vital partner for ‘greening’ projects across New Zealand from major civil projects, residential and commercial development plantings, wetland restoration, landscaping and farmland revegetation.
We are one of the country’s most experienced growers and wholesalers of native plants, complemented by new, exclusive varieties and superior selections for Manuka forestry plantations.
Coastal sand dunes are some of the least understood and degraded natural ecosystems in New Zealand. Every day we are harming these sensitive ecosystems through our recreational activities, uncontrolled livestock damage, housing developments and beach mining. Instead, we should be restoring them through revegetation to buffer the land from wind and storms and fencing them off to protect ecologically sensitive seabird nesting areas.
Manuka took centre stage at the National Maori Manuka Conference 2016 in Rotorua, an initiative of He kai kei aku ringa, where Maori iwi representatives, landowners and beekeepers came together to discuss ways to take a greater role in the burgeoning Manuka industry. Associate Minister for Economic Development Te Ururoa Flavell set the tone of the conference by indicating that there were major opportunities for Maori landowners in Manuka honey. He indicated that he hoped that the conference would give more clarity into the risks and rewards of the industry and how Maori landowners could maximise their returns from their ownership of a large percentage of New Zealand’s natural Manuka resource.
