Our vision

The Project Twin Streams Ranui-Massey-Swanson area runs from the bridge on Swanson Rd (near Parklands Rd), downstream to the Huruhuru Creek.

The area includes the Waimoko, Momotu, Paremuka and Swanson streams, which were overgrown and neglected in many places when the project began. However, with the continued energy and enthusiasm of the Ranui, Massey and Swanson communities these streams are being restored to healthy and beautiful places.

Te Ukaipo Mercy Initiatives for Rangatahi Ltd (Te Ukaipo) manage the contract for Ranui-Massey-Swanson. The community coordinators are Amber Hiroti and Roi Stephens.

We hold streamside community events where the wider community is invited to become involved in planting, weeding, mulching, clearing rubbish etc. We also work with groups within the community who have adopted an area of the stream that they care for on a long term basis. Our rongoa rakau and raranga harakeke workshops are very popular and we welcome anyone interested to join our rongoa sessions every second Thursday at 10am. We also monitor the environment of the streams through bird watching and water monitoring.

We organise interconnected events with the Project Twin Streams arts coordinator, Waicare and Keep Waitakere Beautiful.

We believe that every individual and group within the community has something valuable to contribute to the project, and we welcome anyone who wishes to be involved.
