Meola Community Planting thank you

May 22nd, 2017

On a glorious sunny Sunday, Pat, Roy, Dennis, Nick, Sel, Freddie, Trevor, Lauren,Wendy, Mac, Boyan, Stephen, Jamie, Liz and others met to plant 300 plants in 4 diverse Meola sites:   

wetland, flood plain, rock forest and totara forest…a fantastic morning with a great sense of community. The water level in the wetland is the highest we can recall so we needed to plant in the shallower areas. Freddie singlehandedly planted a future manuka forest; Dennis & Trevor had worked with Sel to prepare some holes at the back of the rock forest in some of the more rocky areas.  Thank you to Sarah and AELB for the plants; also Geoff Davidson of Oratia and Rachel of Plantman. Thanks to Mac for the photo. Special thanks to all volunteers for their time and contribution.
