Bringing Biodiversity Back
into the Urban Environment

Abstract:

Wai-Ora Forest Landscapes Ltd.

Ryan Young (Wai-Ora Forest Landscapes Ltd.)

Our two operations, a native plant retail and wholesale nursery and a landscape contracting service have assisted in planting and growing over a million plants in the Canterbury area since its inception around 10 years ago. With the revenue from the projects going back into Wai-Ora Trust, helping serve the community or as the Trust motto states "Helping People Grow."

The Nursery specialises in growing and supplying Ecologically Sourced native plants. Many of these are used for restoration projects like transforming our city drains into waterway wetlands, developing reserves for local councils, subdivision developments, commercial sites and private clients.

The Landscape Services have been busy planting out 60,000 plants for Clearwater Golf Resort, completing a 3 year project planting out 20,000 plants on ANZAC Drive on the city ring road, a further 16,000 plants at North Brook near Rangiora and 16,000 plants at Kaiapoi Lakes and numerous other projects in and around Canterbury.
