The Koanga Institute in Wairoa in northern Hawkes Bay was founded by Kay Baxter and Bob Corker 15 years ago.   Its primary focus was seed saving of heritage food plants, but it’s now also focused on regenerative living and education.The inspiring workshops, apprenticeships, and internships run at The Koanga Institute are for anyone interested in living sustainably, designing their own lives, and empowering change in those around them.  The courses impart knowledge and practical skills that empower people to be more self-reliant and resilient in supporting not just themselves, but their families and their local communities.

The Koanga Institute runs a two week permaculture design course bi-annually in Spring and Autumn. Their Spring course kicks off at the end of August.

And for those who really want to get their hands dirty, a 10 week Spring Internship is also available.  This is a comprehensive course which really epitomises what ‘living off the land’ is all about.
