A local resident has formed a community conservation group and is working in association with local schools and residents to plant and establish a mixed podocarp forest (kahikatea, matai, rimu, totara etc.) in this area between the link road and school. There is also an establishing grove of harakeke/flax from the ‘Rene Orchiston collection’ available for those teaching Maori traditional harakeke weaving.
For this project you will need to have;
- Suitable footwear (gumboots good)
- Raincoat (we go rain or shine!)
- Gardening gloves (I have a few, pays to bring your own just in case)
- Lots of energy!
Here's how you can become involved:
