For Generations to Come

A Seed for the Future

The ‘Seed for the Future’ project offers all visitors, ecologically focussed individuals and corporate sponsors, an opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint by leaving a living legacy at Te Rerenga Wairua. Trees or plants can be purchased at Te Rerenga Wairua or via this site:

You either plant the tree/plant at Te Rerenga Wairua yourself or have our Natives staff plant it for you.

The ‘Seed for the Future’ package consists of:

  • The tree/plant of your choice selected from the list below or see our plants page.
  • Natives own postcard that carries sufficient postage to reach any destination world wide 
  • A thank you certificate from Natives that also has the GPS co-ordinates of  your tree/plant’s position  written on it
  • A pen and an envelope - both bear the Natives logo.

How can you be involved?

If travelling with Fullers Great Sites BOI or Salt Air please speak to your driver or pilot as they will be able to help. Or – contact us and we can advise of purchase or sponsorship options.
