Wow, we were blown away with the amazing turnout and effort of the 47 volunteers + Ben the dog who attended Saturday's planting day. With 97% attendance rate (47/48), it was the highest attendance on record. We loved seeing so many familiar faces and getting to know all the newcomers. Planting was what we like to call 'Wellington-style' i.e steep terrain and tough digging. Thanks to your high spirits and enthusiasm, we planted 620 native trees and filled up around 3/4 of the planting site - a truly wonderful effort from all involved! Below we have a small selection of photos from the day, click here to see more. We can't wait to see you again soon. Our next Rotary planting day is on Saturday 20th June 9:30 - 1:30 at Tawatawa Reserve in Island Bay. This stunning site overlooks regenerating bush and the South Coast. Please note it is a 10 minute walk up a fairly steep track so a moderate level of fitness is required. Rotary bookings for this event will be managed through Geoff Shaw. A big thanks to Conservation Volunteers, without whom the Forest at the Heart of Wellington would not be possible. Ngā mihi nui to MPI and the Matariki Tu Rākau fund commemorating fallen soldiers. Thanks to Wellington City Council for their excellent guidance, advice and support.
