The Okarito Native Plant Nursery grows eco-sourced native seedlings for restoration, beautification, landscaping, and in the process provides educational and volunteer opportunities.
The nursery was initially formed in conjunction with Department of Conservation and Air New Zealand Environment Trust to restore Lake Wahapo’s ancient kahikatea swamp land and in turn protect all the ecosystems from the glaciers to the sea.
The nursery continues today through the support of the Okarito Community Association, the Department of Conservation, and private donations.
We can provide plants for private sale. Please check out our price list, and contact us if there’s anything we can help with.
