Hands on Ecology FREE course consists of three-hour classes once a week for nine weeks. Classes take place mainly in the forest as students are introduced to different aspects of New Zealand’s unique ecology.
From stream care to plant identification Hands on Ecology is of interest to those who are wanting to learn about our distinctive land. We take all comers from new migrants to conservation professionals and love sharing our appreciation of nature with all.

Hands on Ecology will upskill those working on restoration projects, pest management and plant nursery work.

This is our regular and a very popular course that inspired many participants to expand their home gardens, change the way they live and even share their acquired knowledge with their local community.

As part of this course, we can support your enrolment and learn towards a FREE Horticulture Level 3 Certification through Open Polytechnic, in this scenario you must attend each class, otherwise pick available dates in the registration form.
