Donations Toward the Research

The Heritage Food Crops Research Trust is a registered New Zealand Charitable Trust working to find natural plant-based solutions to combat disease.
We operate from funding received from charitable grants and donations from members of the public. Trustees and staff of the Trust work on an unpaid, voluntary basis.
We would very much appreciate your support to assist us in the work that we do.

Donations help to conserve an array of heritage plant material (from heritage fruit trees to heirloom bean varieties), and support the Trust's research endeavours to find the best fruit and vegetable varieties for human health.

Donations may be made by cheque or bank deposit. Cheques may be sent to the following address:

Heritage Food Crops Research Trust
126A Springvale Road,
Whanganui 4501
New Zealand

Our bank account number is 06-0793-0299259-00 (ANZ Bank).

Adopt a Bean

Play a part in conserving one or more rare and ancient bean varieties. Once imported, these varieties will be grown in Whanganui on the 2.2 hectare property managed by the Trust. As soon as we are able to produce fresh seed we will make them available to seed saving organisations around the country. Our goals are to maintain the seeds in our collection so that we can ensure their availability for present and future generations; to have an abundant supply to distribute as widely as possible; and to be able to research and discover their health potential.

To make a donation toward this project, please contact us using the details below, from which we can provide you more information.
