Verse of The Day
“Kahore he mataku i roto i te aroha: engari ka maka te mataku ki waho e te aroha ina tino rite; no te mea he mamae to te mataku. Ko te tangata hoki e mataku ana, kahore ia i tino rite i roto i te aroha.” (1 John 4:18)

RETURNING TO NATURE: Alter-Natives Wholesale Nursery Native Plant Fund 2009 recipient Nancy Beauregard on her and husband Johnís property near Ngunguru.

During the past three years a Whangarei nursery has given away more than 20,000 native plants to deserving people and community groups caring for the environment.

This year Alter-Natives Wholesale Nursery is once again giving away thousands of plants through their Native Plant Fund with the support of the Northland Regional Council.

A total of 93 lots of 100 native plants valued at $24,180 will be given away next month.

Owner Ian Fox says the primary purpose of the Alter-Natives Wholesale Nursery Native Plant Fund is to support and sustain the environment by providing native plants for projects which will increase and improve the habitat for native wildlife such as birds and insects and improve water quality in streams and wetlands.

John and Nancy Beauregard received one lot of 100 plants in the 2009 Native Plant Fund.
