We are progressing Wairoa Stream restoration again this year.

Magnificent progress has been made by a committed few to tackle the impenetrable weeds and clear the way for track-building and planting.

We picked up from where we finished planting last year and cleared another 130m of difficult terrain toward Sammaree Reserve choker with weeds, spoil and rubbish! We removed large gum and pine trees and hauled out 5 trailer loads of rubbish – oil filters, tyres, beer bottles, plastic, car bodies, boat trailers - and buried an outcast concrete carpark! We created large piles of chip mulch and approximately 12 truckloads of green waste are waiting to be taken to a green fill site.

The Wairoa Stream starts near Mt Pokaka Pa (at the top of Bulls Gorge), skirts the eastern fringe of central Kerikeri, runs under the bridge on Cobham Road, along the back of Kerikeri Primary School and into the Kerikeri Inlet. The stream was a travel route of historical significance to both Maori and European settlers.

Situated at the headwaters of the Wairoa Stream, Kerikeri Organic is the perfect place to start a riparian restoration project.
