Kaipara Flats Community Facebook

Wild & Sage is a 'village' spot with get-togethers for families who are home-educating/homeschooling, unschooling/ life-learning/natural learning in the Matakana Coast areas and the surrounding areas of Rodney.

These get-togethers embrace age diversity, so all ages are welcome - it is inclusive of families with teens, older kids, little children & babies.
The purpose is community - to chat, nibble & frolic in the fields!

🌳 Get-togethers:

160 Hepburn Creek Road, Warkworth
Each Tuesday at 1pm
(Directions: Drive over the little one-way bridge, then go to the second driveway on the right - you will see a sign 'Berekah Retreat' go up the driveway and turn right at the second house. The hall where we meet is next to that).

You are welcome to bring activities to share if you wish.
You are also welcome to bring a gold coin donation if you wish to help cover the cost of hiring the hall.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to comment on the group page or text 0224592674.

About Kaipara Flats

We are a rural community in the middle of New Zealand at it’s narrowest point, between Kaipara Harbour in the West and Hauraki Gulf in the East. We encompass a local area which includes Kaipara Hills to our North-West, bordered by the villages of Tauroa, Ahuroa and Glorit, with our local town Warkworth on State Highway 1 to the East.

Traditionally a farming area, the community still produces some of New Zealand’s most iconic agriculture including Dairy, Wool, Beef and Lamb. Befitting a part of New Zealand that is famous for Kauri, we still have thousands of hectares of Pine and logging trucks are a common sight along our rural roads. Only 45 minutes from Auckland’s Harbour Bridge. On a good day.
