A collaborative place inspiring people to create a sustainable and resilient local world.
The Brooklands Enviro-Hub aims to be a centre for groups and individuals to meet, work and learn about our local environment and ways to improve where we live while minimising our impacts on the world.
Bringing together people with a passion for sustainability and the environment, it is to a place of collaboration, advocacy and learning, welcoming anyone with an interest in the environment and a sustainable future. The hub has been created to promote positive ideas and actions that can be incorporated into everyday lives.
It is also a place for complementary activities to take advantage of the stunning location. It will be used for Pukekura Park volunteer activities, Council workshops and a base to support events at Brooklands.
The objectives for the Enviro-Hub and its users are varied, and include:
10:00AM – 2:00PM
10:00AM – 2:00PM
The Brooklands Enviro-Hub will be based at the arts and crafts style bungalow next to Brooklands Zoo. Built in 1925 by Newton King, prior to the land being gifted and becoming part of Pukekura Park.
With local community groups asking for a collaborative space to base themselves from the old residence has become a bustling space of like-minded, enthusiastic and energetic people all doing their best to make a positive impact in Taranaki.
We invite others to join and learn about how they can make a difference in our community too.
In these early stages of getting the Enviro-Hub up and running there will be a core group of organisations forming the foundation of the hub’s activities. Over time more groups will become involved and the spaces inside and out will evolve to cater for multiple activities and users. The heritage of the building and grounds will be maintained and celebrated.
The Enviro-Hub is currently open weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am – 2pm.
