While our name is new, our mission and core values remain the same.

You may have known us as “Habitat Enhancement and Landcare Partnership (Waihi) Inc.” or “H.E.L.P. Waihi,” but as our organisation grows, we are proud to introduce our commercial side, now known as Waihi Native Plants.

H.E.L.P. Waihi remains a vital part of our operation, collaborating with a dedicated team of volunteers and engaging in community projects nationwide. We remain committed to restoring our whenua, embracing sustainability, and working alongside our community. 

With this exciting new chapter, we are energised to move forward, extending our impact and making an even bigger difference in preserving and restoring our precious natural environment. Our commitment to Aotearoa and our whakapapa is stronger than ever.
