Current Projects

Community Gardens

WEC coordinates the community gardens in Raglan to ensure this community space (and the plants within it) flourishes.

Raglan Timebank

Timebank is a bank of hours where people can exchange time, skills and services. No money changes hands.

Seed Bank

The seedbank holds varieties of open-pollinated vegetable, flower and grain seed. This means the seeds can be saved, nurturing and expanding stocks of seeds that grow well in the local Whaingaroa environment.

Crop Swap

Regular gatherings enable community connection and sharing of abundance through exchange of homegrown or homemade goods.

Tool Library

We have a library of tools to lend for your next environmental, community or DIY project.


Every month we have a page in the local paper The Raglan Chronicle.

Junior Enviro Club

The Whaingaroa Environment Centre runs a Junior Enviro Club at Waitetuna and Te Uku Schools, teaching students about environmental sustainability.

Maui Dolphin Conservation

The WEC is working with the community and a number of other organisations like WWF and the DoC to save Maui Dolphin’s.  With your help together we CAN save the world’s rarest dolphins.

Maui Dolphin Day

For the past 13 years the Whaingaroa Environment Centre has held Maui Dolphin Day. Run annually in conjunction with the Xtreme Zero Waste Recycled Raft Race, it is the largest community day in Raglan!

Plastic Bag Free Raglan

Our mission is to create a “Plastic Shopping Bag Free” Whaingaroa-Raglan by July 2018.

Raglan ECOllective tours. 

The Whāingaroa Environment Centre is excited to present the Raglan ECOllective tours!
