Restoring Piako’s living treasure trove

Planting for the future

Piako Catchment Forum is a proud promoter of eco-sourced plants. Ecosourced plants are those which are grown from seeds collected from naturally-occurring vegetation in a locality close to where they are replanted as part of a native planting project. Please consider eco-sourced plants for your next project. For more information on Eco-Sourcing check out links under 'Planting Resources' on this page.
