On the back of our highly successful planting day in collaboration with the Te Atatu Marae Coalition, Auckland Council and others, we’d love to get your help to finish off this kaupapa. While the day was a huge success, we still have a big pile of mulch that needs to be spread along one-third of the planting area. We got a lot done on the day, but we have some more mahi yet to finish this off.

If you have a volunteer day you need to use, or just some free time to help out in the local community, please do come and join us for a day or two of mulching. Mulching is really important to help suppress weeds and keep the ground nice from drying out over summer, which gives the 2,400 natives we planted the best chance of survival to next winter.

Many hands make light work so please join us from 9:30am on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 October at Harbourview-Orangihina Park, Te Atatu Peninsula (entrance off the roundabout opposite Gloria Ave).
