Planting trees on the stunningly rugged coastline in Owhiro Bay with Miramar Central School and members of the public. Huge thanks to the Parks & Gardens team from Wellington City Council for the support – the students had an absolute blast, and we’re thrilled to be able to get 1,000 trees in the ground together.

As part of our 2017 Love your Water campaign in Wellington we invite you to join us on Wednesday 28 June 2017 for a day of tree planting in Owhiro Bay in collaboration with the great team at the Wellington City Council.  The Owhiro stream has been a focus of quite a bit of interest this year, so we’re going to give the bay some love with a planting along the ocean side.

Simply meet on the ocean side of the road near the boat ramp at Owhiro Bay and look for the 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 we’ll have Tea, Coffee and juices as well as a light lunch for all participants. To volunteer simply sign-up via our quick registration form.
