    Kia Ora and Welcome!

    The volunteers will only be helping us with all non-profit activities like: caring about the animals of the sanctuary, helping in the gardens and maintaining the grounds.

    We are an Animal Sanctuary & Permaculture Project, established in 2016 as an intentional small community with residents, living-in volunteers and external helpers.

    We are currently home to: 4 Alpacas, 2 Donkeys, 2 Minihorses, 4 sheep, 2 pigs, 2 cows and several retired ex-racing Greyhounds which we foster to re-home.
    The property has been established under permaculture principles with solar shower, compost toilet, food forest and organic veggie garden by experienced specialists with permaculture education. We compost pretty much everything and are using it as fertile organic soil for our organic veggie and fruit gardens - we are also aiming towards being zero waste.

    We are compassionate about all beings and therefore suitable for vegans, vegetarians and animal lovers.

    The whole foods kitchen provides yummy healthy meals for the volunteers with our own produce from the gardens freshly prepared 3 times a day. We don’t have any meat or animal food products on the property and there is also no smoking, drugs or alcohol allowed.

    With this intention in mind and set within the breathtaking landscape and wildlife of the Para Wetlands, you'll find it's most likely the tranquillest and peacefullest place on Earth:)

    Our goal is to be an Animal Sanctuary set within permaculture gardens and grounds to care for and re-home animals in need and produce organic food for our own consumption under permaculture principles.

    Who is involved?

    Maia, founder and director, was born in Germany and immigrated in 2011 to NZ. She works on the greyhound re-homing program and focusses on other projects which include essential oil healing, family constellation, yoga classes and workshops on plant-based nutritions.

    Alex, certified in animal care, welfare and health, born and raised locally, lives with her pet cows Theodore and Matao since 2019 and has recently taking over the day-to-day management of the property. She's working alongside the volunteers in the gardens, grounds and paddocks and shares the lunch meals in the Kitchen.
