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;

  1. Suitable footwear (gumboots good)
  2. Raincoat (we go rain or shine!)
  3. Gardening gloves (I have a few, pays to bring your own just in case)
  4. Lots of energy!

Here's how you can become involved:

Simply complete the Community Planting Registration Form and we'll be in touch to chat about volunteering options or contact Gerard Kelly (Community Planting Co-ordinator) on Tuesdays between 9.00am - 3.00pm
