A Rocha Manawatū

A Rocha Manawatū is the local branch of the New Zealand division of A Rocha, which is the 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 the propagation unit at the SDA College, Walkers Road, 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.

The group meets every fortnight on Sunday afternoon, usually at the propagation unit, from 1.30-3.30pm. See the ENM events calendar for the next meeting date, and/or email below for details about upcoming meetings. Volunteers welcome.
