Become an intern

An internship is an opportunity to be part of the WRT whānau, explore Waiheke Island and get involved in the initiatives happening here. We offer both holistic and project internships, and we welcome discussions about how our work can fit in with your studies as we host interns both on-site and remotely.


Living sustainably

Whether you are a visitor to Waiheke or a resident, life can be a little different from living in a city so we share ideas and information to help you live more sustainably and in tune with the island. We have guidance on conservation, reducing and managing waste, conserving water and connecting with your community. You can also find out how to grow food, and compost scraps.
