Restore Rodney East is a community driven initiative, aimed at supporting local conservation-based groups and projects to achieve their respective missions and goals.
Over the last decade there has been a growing national and local awareness of the impacts of invasive species and human development on our precious and unique ecosystems of Aotearoa New Zealand. Rodney East has nationally one of the highest densities of groups working towards achieving pest free status and on the list of issues above – our initiative is bringing the many projects closer together in order to be more collaborative, consistent and effective.
Join us a Gibbs Farm an expansive, open-air sculpture park located in the beautiful Kaipara Harbour, North of Auckland. Wander at your own pace across manicured fields to view the giant sculptures. They are larger than life, some towering above you like skyscrapers in a rural setting.
