Conservation Sustainability Endurance

With early reports of so much of the land and multiple houses being destroyed at Wilderland there is a clear need for funds that will help the community survive.

Wilderland is a centre for education in sustainable living and is one of New Zealand's longest standing communities. It has had an organic shop to sell healthy food to the local community since 1964.

We will update this page as more details come through.

What is Wilderland?

From their website...

Sustainable Living

Wilderland strives to be an example of a more sustainable, collaborative way of living with our environment and tries to create methods with which future generations can live in greater harmony with the earth. In all things we aim to give back to the land by applying methods of organic horticulture, land stewardship and developing new sustainable systems for all to learn from.


Wilderland works to develop and showcase the benefits of collaborative sustainability in contemporary New Zealand. Community is collaboration, sharing and support. A healthy community creates a wealth that money can't buy.


Wilderland's charitable purpose is to provide learning experiences to the wider community. Learning occurs mainly through hands-on experience and participation. You can learn how to:

• Build local economy

• Develop collaborative enterprise

• Foster wellbeing

• Grow your own food

• Reduce your ecological footprint

• Minimise the waste you create
