Please do not bring in single use plastics. We are near to the town of Whitianga if you need essential supplies. However, we aim to be self reliant and minimise fuel use.
Drugs and alcohol policy
There is a no drugs & alcohol policy in shared spaces. People come here for self-betterment, to get away from addiction. Wilderland was founded as a safe space for all people. Longer-term stays have a moderation use policy in their own spaces.
We minimise the use of chemicals. That means only eco soaps, no bleaches, solvents or chemicals that can harm the land.
For those with bee sting allergies please be aware there are bees working on site. However, these are the famously chilled out Italian bee who don't tend to sting. There are also mosquitos, they favour some areas more than others, please inform us if you are reactive so we can accommodate you.
There are upwards of 10 people at Wilderland at any one time. Situations WILL arise that will make you uncomfortable and lead to conflict. Bottling things up and giving the silent treatment leads only to further discourse. See issues as a chance for development and learning. We are trying to create a culture of openness and honesty. Mediation meetings can be arranged on request, there are also weekly community meetings to address any growing tensions.
