Mokihi Trust


Organisation Summary:

Mokihi Trust was formed in 2015.  The group was an initiative of Te Kakano - an established native plant nursery and restoration group based in Wanaka.  Part of Te Kakano's vision is to sow the seed of enhancing native restoration through other communities on the Clutha  River.  Local Cromwell people stepped up to form their own group and Mokihi trust was born.  Our mission statement is:  To engage, motivate and educate the community in sustainable ecological restoration so as to enhance and restore Cromwell's indigenous ecosystem for now and future generations.


Volunteers are the heart of our group and we welcome anyone interested in native habitat restoration. Help us re-build native habitats one plant at a time, get your hands dirty and enjoy being out in the fresh air. Your help can really make a difference.
