Eco-sourced Trees From
— Abel Tasman — Banks Peninsula —
Living on the edge of the Abel Tasman Park we are fortunate to be surrounded by one of the best regenerating forests in NZ. We want to help accelerate this process and provide eco-sourced meaningful trees to the wider Tasman region, as well as developing relevant locally sourced seed for other regions.
NZ Nurseries are germinating seeds and growing trees right at the start of the Abel Tasman Track in Marahau, at an awesome venue called The Barn Cabins and Camp. They certainly have branched out into new ideas.
Some Of The Projects We Are Supporting
The Children's Bay Regeneration
Over 60,000 natives have been planted in the last 15 years at Children’s Bay Park, Banks Peninsula. Walking tracks have recently been completed around the entire headland, extending out to Moa Point. The entire track is around 2 hours so great for family trips, with lots of lookouts over Akaroa Harbour. You are welcome to explore the track and see the regeneration in person. Accommodation is available at the original Childrens Bay Woolshed, lovingly renovated at the start of the track. All proceeds go towards the regeneration and track maintenance.
The Barn Cabins & Camp Regeneration
Our home, The Barn, provides us with one of the best locations possible to eco-source our seed from. We have begun a program to remove invasive weeds and exotic trees and are now in the process of replanting. We have also set up a large colony of bee hives to help pollinate the start of the Abel Tasman Park.
The Barn also has a range of accommodation options and can organise trips in The Abel Tasman Park if you want to come out and visit us!
