We have partnered with the Rotary Club of Wellington to plant a Forest at the Heart of Wellington. This ambitious project involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mount Victoria. The aim of this project is to create a greener healthier environment within the city and to show-case to the nation how humans and nature can thrive in the same place.  Tasks vary seasonally but may include weeding, clearing predator traps, and tree planting (end of May - September)
