Zealandia are active supporters
of our communities
Zealandia have a longstanding tradition of supporting local communities through donations, sponsorship and participation in community events.
School fairs and gardening projects across NZ
The team get about one request a week for either free plants or some other kind of backing. We always say that if someone has a direct link into plant growing, they’ll get a sympathetic hearing. Our support is a mix of ongoing involvement with several groups, and ad hoc support of others, such as school fairs.
Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust
Our range of 1400 products includes swan plants, and that connection has led us to becoming a long-term supporter of the Monarch Butterfly NZ Trust. We’ve also learnt quite a bit about the genetics and populations of monarch butterflies in New Zealand.
ASB Classic – women’s tennis
The business sponsors the women’s side of the ASB Tennis Classic, played every January just before the Australian Open Tennis Championship.
The Pakuranga Wasps rugby team
The Pakuranga Wasps don’t have to worry about finding the money for their rugby jerseys, thanks to our ongoing backing.
Zealandia Speedway sprint car
Zealandia have come on board as a sponsor of the speedway racer Glenn Torpey in the Maxim chassis sprintcar running a small block Kriner V8 engine.
The Waiora Trust, in Christchurch, runs a community garden that offers friendship and gardening space to people who may be struggling. The garden also provides a huge range of vegetables to families in need. Zealandia support the trust with free seedlings.
Helping out the Wairoa River landcare Society
This society is doing important work near our Clevedon nursery. We were pleased to assist in providing plants to the Ardmore-Brookby kohekohe propagation project. You can see more of the great projects WRLS is working on here.
Our neighbours at The Clevedon A&P Show
The Clevedon A&P Show is a near neighbour and we are a strong supporter of the show’s indoor gardening section. For the past three years, we’ve had our own display there, including cups of tea and free punnets for visitors.
