We are the Waitaki (North Otago area) branch of Forest and Bird.
Since 1923 Forest & Bird has played a crucial role in preserving New Zealand’s environment and native species. We've helped establish conservation protection for a third of our country’s land mass, put an end to logging our publicly-owned native forests and helped prevent species such as the kakapo and kokako becoming extinct.
We have grown to number 80,000 members and supporters who make it possible for our staff to advocate for better legislation and policy to protect nature. Members also engage with local and regional councils to speak for nature in local and regional planning forums and educate their communities about conservation and environmental issues.
Grow our land, grow our people, grow our future. We are a social and educational hub to share life skills across age, culture and gender. Our aim is to empower people of all ages to grow and cook their own food and build resilience. We run a range of programmes and services including courses and workshops for sustainable living skills, community garden working bees, work experience, local regeneration through our Community Natives Nursery, Te Reo Māori, community events and a variety of social enterprises.Read More
‘I will treasure for the rest of my life an intimate encounter with heritage that began one evening along the Janet Frame Heritage Trail in Oamaru. As I read the brochure I noted that 56 Eden Street would not be included. The omission had such a power of attraction that I soon found myself standing in front of the house. I looked at its condition, its unpainted walls nested in knee-high grass. There were no lights. How could such a significant feature in the New Zealand cultural landscape be so neglected? And how could it be saved?’ ~ Bill Tramposch.
Bill and Peggy Tramposch went on to buy the house, set up a Trust, and establish funding for the restoration of the house. The property, 56 Eden Street, is now owned and administered by the Janet Frame Eden Street Trust.
The Trustees are: Chloe Searle (chair), Gordon Scott (treasurer), Alison Albiston (house and garden restorer) , Karen Ross (friends), Carol Berry (trustee) and Cara Tipping Smith (trustee).
The establishment of the Trust was undertaken with the support of Janet Frame and her sister June Gordon who assisted with the re-framing of the property and the work of the Trust.
The curator at 56 Eden Street is Lynley Caldwell who is assisted by a very able and enthusiastic band of volunteers on Sunday afternoons.
’56 Eden Street has been restored with an historian’s reverence and care, yet it does not all have the chill or distance of a museum. It feels like a family home.’ ~ Anna Smaill, writer.
