This year, the hui will run from April 23-25 and be located at a quiet and private retreat situated on the banks of the mighty Waikato River at Lake Karapiro. To recognise the importance of the river to our region and the interconnectedness to our lives here, the theme will be Wai Whenua: Water & Land.



The Nursery at Tamahere has been under pressure for some time to close. We are now at the point of closure. So please note the following:-

1. There will be no potting session on 15th April.

2. If anyone can save us moving plants by buying them, please contact Jan Simmons on 8568995 or email her at


3. If anyone can help with the huge job of relocating the Tamahere Nursery please contact

Jan Simmons on 8568995 or email her above

Finally, we do have a temporary location to move to and a permanent location is under discussion with Waikato District Council.

Thanks for all your help and we hope to be potting again in May so please don't put away your gloves and thermos!!

Best wishes,
