About Raglan Naturally so far
Since 2017 and after three years of working with the community to revitalise our community plan, ‘Raglan Naturally February 2020’ was created.
Through the revitalisation process, it had become clear that the community wanted Raglan Naturally to be kept alive!
The Raglan Naturally Committee hosted three facilitated workshops with our Focus Group coordinators at the end of 2019 where it was agreed that there was a need for an official Raglan Naturally organisation to continue community-led development and support the implementation of the plan.
It was agreed that the best structure would be a co-governance organisation (between Iwi/Hapū and the community), operating as a Charitable Trust. This direction is supported by key community organisations
Building on the goals of the community plan review, in 2020 Raglan Naturally evolved into a community organisation. The Raglan Naturally Trust Board was established, in co-governance with local Iwi and hapū, to support the implementation of the community plan and continue community-led development in Whāingaroa.
Our actions for the next 2 years are to support projects and aspirations of the community and hapū, and grow community capability and connections through training, workshops and events.
