Building Waiheke's community inventory

Our current focus

We need your community initiatives! Transition Waiheke is developing a community inventory of a wide range of Waiheke initiatives which strengthen our community.

The inventory may also reveal community resources which groups can draw on to support their work.

We would like to get your community initiative on the inventory. » Read more
