Thank you!

On Friday the 26th of August, over 50 volunteers planted 300 trees at the Tasman Reserve. It was great to have students from the two local schools – Tasman Christian School, and Tasman School, brave the weather and come plant some trees along the reserve nearby.

Collaborating with these local schools really helps lock in the educational programme, and getting these students connected to this place will ensure their stewardship for years to come.

Also thanks to The Loop Crew for coming out with their electric car, biodiesel bus and great enthusiasm for sustainable living and clean water.

This is one in a series of tree planting activities we are running this winter as part of our nationwide Love your Water: Training Workshops and Tree Planting Tour.

Tasman District Council has been a huge help in our Golden Bay / Tasman leg of our tour, and we are very much hope to do it all again next year.




As part of the South Island leg of our 2016 Love Your Water campaign we invite you to join us for a day of tree planting and weeding at the Tasman Reserve on Friday 26 August 2016. 

Simply meet from 10.00am at blue Sustainable Coastlines flags at the Tasman Reserve. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but afterwards we’ll all come together for some food and drinks, courtesy of Phoenix Organics.

Collaborating with the Tasman City Council and local schools, we’re looking forward to helping with the restoration of the reserve. Volunteers, corporate groups and schools are all welcome to along and get their hands dirty, give some love to previous plantings, and plant new native trees to help the regeneration of this area.
