Welcome to WithIN NATURE!

At WithIN NATURE, we are passionate about connecting people with the natural world and fostering a deep appreciation for the environment. We believe that by immersing ourselves in nature, we can learn valuable lessons about sustainability, cultural heritage, and personal growth.

We are passionate about connection with people within nature, we are passionate about shifting paradigms from using natures resources to regenerating nature.

Our organisation is dedicated to providing transformative nature-based experiences and education for individuals of all ages. Whether you are a young person looking for alternative education options, a family seeking meaningful outdoor activities, or a community group interested in environmental initiatives, we have something for everyone.

We believe in the power of indigenous wisdom and strive to honour and preserve the knowledge passed down by our ancestors. By incorporating traditional Māori practices into our programs, we provide a unique opportunity to learn about sustainable land management, indigenous flora and fauna, and the importance of kaitiakitanga (guardianship).

Our dedicated team of experienced educators, environmentalists, and cultural advisors work together to create immersive and engaging programs. Through hands-on activities, workshops, and guided experiences, we aim to inspire a deep connection to the whenua (land) and encourage a sense of responsibility towards its well-being.

At WithIN NATURE, we continually strive for excellence. We challenge each other, learn fast, and think forward. We are committed to adding value in everything we do, bringing out the best in ourselves and others. We foster a supportive and inclusive community, genuinely looking out for everyone we connect with, including our customers and suppliers. Kindness, empathy, and sincerity are at the core of our interactions, recognising and nurturing each other's strengths and motivations.

Join us on this exciting journey of exploration, education, and empowerment. Together, we can create a sustainable future, where the beauty and richness of nature are cherished and preserved for generations to come.

Embrace the wonders of nature, learn from indigenous wisdom, and embark on a transformative journey with WithIN NATURE.

The Pathway

Permaculture becomes our permanent culture

When we’re good to our environment, our environment is good to us. This is the basic principle of permaculture, the agricultural philosophy is holistic, focusing on whole system thinking, simulating and directly utilizing patterns, features and relationships found in natural ecosystems. Permaculture aims to design systems that work with and benefit nature, rather than harming or disrupting it.

When we nurture and evolve our own ecosystem, our own inner relationship with self, then everything naturally becomes a healthy extension of that.
