Keeping the whole of our collection of incredibly important New Zealand heirlooms alive and available for the people of New Zealand is a complicated and expensive process and we receive no government funding. In order to be able to maintain a garden crew capable of continuing to save our seeds and heritage fruit trees we need to significantly increase our membership base and are aiming for 5000 members. More information on membership of Koanga and our progress towards our goal of 5000 members can be found here
