Papakōwhai ANZ Planting Day 1 | Sustainable Coastlines

Event impacts

This was the first planting of the new financial year and we had an awesome day combining our community planting day with Paremata School, community members and even the police!

A big thank you to ANZ and Wellington Community Trust for sponsoring the event and for the collaboration of Porirua City Council. Again thank you to all who got stuck in, especially on the harder banks where dedicated locals rallied to get the final plants in! We’re looking forward to continuing to work together at planting days next year.
