Our Logo - Why a tree?
The Ti Kouka Tree is the symbol we use to represent our organisation and our work.
Ti Kouka are distinctive, useful, beautiful, adaptable, strong and versatile. They can acclimatise themselves to local conditions growing almost anywhere can can profive a range of resources including tools, clothing, shelter, medicine, food and fuel. Like footprints in the landscape they are also distinctive markers or signposts across the countryside.
We chose this tree as our symbol because of the way it reflects our organisational values and the way we work to nurture, guide, support, empower, resource and grow our community organisations.
