Come along on Saturday 30th October with friends, family and colleagues to help plant some native trees and protect our precious waterways.

After an awesome effort from volunteers last year to get 1500 plants in the ground, we are returning to check on how they are doing and plant the next section of the waterway. The site is a great area for riparian planting because it is situated on a working farm in Motumaoho that backs onto a stream which eventually leads to the Waitakaruru River. Planting here will build a strong barrier to prevent run off from the farm entering the water, improve the soil and air quality and bring back native wildlife to the area.

We’ll be starting from 10:00 am and finishing up around 2 pm.

You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but around noon we’ll all come together for some refreshing Phoenix Organics Drinks.

If you’d like to come along, even if it’s just for a couple of hours, please register online so you don’t miss out.

We look forward to seeing you there.
