The Trust

The Trust was set up for the promotion of education, and for the relief of poverty within NZ.

All land and assets are owned by the Trust, and the board of Trustees is made up of some of the Community Members. Community Members are the caretakers of the Trust assets and profits from the Trust's businesses are used to fulfill the Trust's purposes.              

The Trust's main income comes from the farm, selling farm fresh milk and life stock, and it runs a number of other businesses including a venue for hire, art gallery, hostel, short stay accommodation, organic gardens and sale of produce.                                        

Riverside Education

Riverside's education programme, aimed at learning ways of taking care of ourselves, each other and the earth. It is sponsored by the Riverside Charitable Trust and each workshop within the programme provides free spaces for people who cannot afford the usual course fee.


The diverse and inspiring programme provides hands-on learning opportunities for our local community. In a wide range of workshops tailored to the seasons, we share many practical skills for a healthy and self-supporting way of life.
