On Friday 27 and Saturday 28 September, we need your help to give some love back to the beautiful Whaingaroa Harbour, Raglan.
With the support of Meridian Energy and Te Uku Wind Farm, we will be planting native trees (lovingly raised by Whaingaroa Harbour Care) on the peninsula in front of Raglan Area School. This stunning spot has a public walkway so that you, your children and their children will be able to admire your handiwork for years to come.
We need volunteers anytime from 10.30am to 4pm on Friday the 27th to help plant the trees. Meet at the school carpark at the end of Norrie Ave or, if you arrive later than 10.30am, simply walk down the peninsula until you see us. A barbecue meal with vegetarian options will be provided for all volunteers that register.
On Saturday the 28th, we will meet at the school carpark at 10am to finish the planting off. Again, a BBQ lunch with vegetarian options will be provided for registered volunteers. Following this we will head to the Town Hall on Bow Street for a Sustainable September open day from 1pm and free screening of dramatic award-winning nature documentary Oceans.
Please bring your own spade and make sure you wear gumboots or shoes that you don’t mind getting muddy!
A big thanks to Meridian Energy for making this event possible, Whaingaroa Harbour Care for supplying and donating trees, Raglan Area School, Liz Stanway and the Central Region Department of Corrections.
