Connect with local opportunities for action

We also support a wide range of community-based sustainability initiatives. Whether it's bringing your seeds to a local seed bank, trading your time for needed skills via Taranaki Timebank, sharing your surplus at a Crop Swap, doing a beach clean up with Taranaki Conservationists, learning about our amazing marine life with a local marine conservation group, donating a plastic bottle to Upcycle Taranaki's green houses, maintaining our waterways and forests with a revegetation or stream-care group, supporting local organic food producers, or attending a sustainability learning event, it all adds up to making our beautiful region more sustainable.
