What people at The Orchard are saying

I am really enjoying working in this space. Kayla, Amy and the team have been most helpful in getting my business established. Hot desking and utilising the facility has changed the way I do things in Whangarei as I now have a central base to come and work from rather than my home out at Whangarei Heads.

We have been part of The Orchard for a month now. What an amazing space over-flowing with support and fabulous people! The space is brimming with ideas and knowledge. The networking opportunities are endless. It has been a fabulous experience working with other professionals in building the success of Northland businesses. LOVE IT!

Kayla and all the team have been really helpful setting me up to work out of The Orchard. They are really flexible and everyone is so friendly and approachable. My company is based in Taranaki so I work remotely from my team and am on the road alot. It's really great to have a place to go to and be involved in all the great events they organise (especially social events!). Since joining The Orchard in January, the networking aspect of the space has been great i've had people approach me just from reading my profile on the website

Hi everyone, I am very proud to be part of this wonderful work space. A great opportunity for local business to work in a collaborative environment with expert support net works. Many of the people we talk to in our community are capable of staying in their own homes - all they need is a bit of extra help.We offer local, trustworthy and caring home-based care to people in Northland.

The Orchard is an amazing central location that cultivates collaborative idea discussion, serendipitous meetings and a place to hang out and get inspired. Very excited to be (Hiveapp.co.nz) the very first scholarship recipient as part of our prize (winning the Innovation Award - emerging) to be situated here at the Orchard with support from Northland Inc.

Fantastic space, great to meet Kayla and The Orchard team and Melanie Sweet at Northland Inc. As Agribusiness Consultants, Total Ag is looking forward to the opportunities to promote growth and development in Northland's Primary Industries and The Orchard will form an integral part of facilitating discussion between industry bodies and rural professionals. Exciting times!

After seeing how amazing the space is last night, I am so excited for my first day hot-desking at The Orchard 25th November! As an accountant who loves what she does, I am eager to listen, offer support and guidance to any new businesses who come and see me at The Orchard - I’ll be there once a month!

Cannot wait to kick The Orchard off with a BANG in early November. Looking forward to meeting and working with the entrepreneurial talent here in Northland. As the Community Activator, I'm tasked with exactly that; to ensure that The Orchard meets the needs of its community and is a fun and inspirational place to call home.
