Another incredibly fun day’s planting, battling the weather at Kumutoto Stream with University of Victoria Society of Conservation Biology.  Thanks to all the hardy volunteers, especially Bart, Rosie and Miriam for their passion and hard work



As part of our 2017 Love Your Water project in Wellington we invite you to join us on Saturday 1 July for a day of tree planting alongside the Kumutoto Stream. This urban stream has some great people at the University of Victoria Society for Conservation Biology lovingly overlooking its restoration and we want to help them give some love to this special spot.

Meet from 10.00am at the Club K squash club and gym, near the tennis courts right next to Victoria University, on Salamanca Road. Please park on Salamanca Road and look for our blue Sustainable Coastlines flags. We’ll be starting from 10.00am and finishing up around 1:00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but afterwards we’ll all come together for a tasty sausage sizzle and some Phoenix Organics Drinks.
