As part of our amazing collaboration with the ANZ, and ECan, we would like to invite you to join us on Saturday the 12th of September for a community planting day alongside the Waimakariri River.
Bring your family, friends and colleagues on Saturday 12th September and we’ll arm you with all the knowledge and tools to get going. Planting starts at 9:30 am and will be going until early afternoon.
We are confident in our processes and protocols to run safe family friendly tree plantings. If you have any questions in regards. to these please read our above protocols and get in touch with any questions.
The goals here are to protect water quality, enhance social capital through community events, and create habitat for indigenous biodiversity. This is a significant ongoing riparian restoration project next to the Waimakariri River. The Waimakariri River is the source of over 75% of the drinking water for Christchurch so get involved to give this iconic waterway some much-needed love!
How to get there: Head to the eastern end of Coutts Island Road – Whites Crossing West Picnic Area. Look out for the Sustainable Coastlines flags and friendly helpers in high-vis gear.
We’ll be starting from 9.30am and finishing up around 2.30 pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but around noon we’ll all come together for some tasty food and some Phoenix Organics Drinks.
