Our goal is to raise $550,000 before March 31st to purchase Pīwakawaka Farm in Whanganui, 673 Papaiti Rd. .
A large area of land for demonstrating environmental restoration and hosting educational experiences is essential to our vision.
> $550,000: Goes toward making an impact through our educational offerings and environmental work over the next 3 years.
> $1,000,000: Unlocks the ability to buy a neighbouring property with big potential, or build early-stage infrastructure while making impact.
