Alchera Landscape Design

Other Projects


These projects are not driven by individual desires, or commercial imperatives, but by community wants and needs, which usually has the bonus of working in a team.


These projects include:

-  lagoon riparian restoration, Tawharanui Regional Park;

-  Beach foreshore restoration, Campbells Beach;

-  Interpretation project, Tawharanui Regional Park;

-  Church redevelopment, St Heliers;

-  Restoration at RNZYS Kawau Island.


Working, often pro-bono, alongside other people dedicated to 'the cause' is very satisfying.  Seeing projects realised as the community and resources allow, means plenty of time on the end of a spade, lots of nice food, and a great feeling of community achievement.
