Koanga Heritage Seed Institute

The Koanga Heritage Seed Institute in Wairoa is a heritage seed/tree bank and producer that is about to lose its 20 hectares and probably all its plants with their invaluable genetic inheritance.

They are crowd funding to buy the land because their lease is expiring. If you are concerned about the huge loss of plant/seed diversity that is happening world-wide you might wish to make a donation:
