The Pā is a Community Centre in the heart of the Kaeo township that was formed and funded by a Community Group and Whangaroa Health Services (WHST) to Support and Promote Healthier Lifestyles for the Residents of the wider Kaeo/Whangaroa rohe (area).

The name “The Pā” was given to pay homage to where the centre is situated, at the foot of the historical Pā site known as Pōhue Pā as well as to invoke a greater sense of whanaungatanga and kinship to the people of Kaeo/Whangaroa.

Tena koutou

Its really unfortunate that there are people in our community that don't even have the courage to ask, that's all they had to do.....

Me mihi atu kia koutou nga ringa atawhai o tenei mahi, Ka arohaWhangaroa Teaching Garden

I wish I did not have to write this.

To all those that have come into our garden with your boxes and stripped our trees and produce without gaining permission or doing any mahi in exchange.

You come at night and the weekend. This is a place for our elders and our residents to live safely please do not come on to our grounds during out of hours. You are making them feel unsafe.

If you had only taken a few fruits and not the whole lot we would have not noticed and there would have been plenty to go around.

Remember our garden is small and the produce is for our elders living at Kauri Lodge and the volunteers who have spent months working to make this garden great.

If you wish to benefit from the garden our exchange is some mahi.

You must either Join our Wednesday night or Friday day volunteer groups or ask permission from rachel@whst.org.nz

We will be monitoring this situation and if it continues we will have to close the garden off to the whole community. Please do not be the reason for our community garden to be fenced and locked.
