Starting at 10am, we had 63 wonderful people show up – members of the public, the team from Society for Conservation Biology, the hard-working crew from Volunteer Fitness and even some interested neighbours to Kelburn Park! Despite the wind, it was very sheltered down in Kumutoto Stream across the four working sites. Along with getting 100 trees in the ground, a massive amount of weeding and site preparation was completed, allowing for further tree planting in the coming weeks as well as giving some love to young trees planted over the last few years. Being an urban area, there was also a huge amount of rubbish removed from the forest
After a solid morning, everyone enjoyed a tasty BBQ, thanks to Kennards Hire Newtown, and some Phoenix Organics Drinks. Huge thanks also to the Wellington City Council for supplying bins for the waste.
