Tauranga Foraging Map

Tauranga Foraging Map is a google map of fruit trees, nut trees and wild edible plants in the Bay Of Plenty.

Please feel free to harvest from these trees on public land! They are there for all of us to share.

We would love to hear from you about trees in your local area to add to the list... please email to Glen with details.

... And share this with as many people as possible!

Tauranga Seed Exchange

The main idea behind the seed exchange is to encourage people to save their own seeds, to realize that this is the only way to independent growing.
Seeds are expensive to buy, even more so if they are organic.
It is easy to save your own seed and the longer a plant has done well in a particular local area, the better it is suited to it.
Every year before spring sowing we have a get together where everyone brings their own seeds and we exchange with others and talk about our experiences.
Everyone is welcome, even if you don't have any seeds of your own. » Read more
