- Departure time:
Bowenvale Park runs from the base of the Port Hills in Cashmere up to the Summit Road. It is the access to a popular mountain biking area in Victoria Park, and has several walking and running trails.
There are key areas that have been planted in the Park over the past few years, notably in harakeke (flaxes) in the upper valley and smaller native plants and shrubs in the lower valley. The plantings in the lower valley have been done by students from Ara, a local polytechnic, and our role is to help release these plantings from weeds and grass and help them to get established.
In the upper valley our work is to release flaxes planted over the past few years from their cages.
No experience is necessary as training is provided. We also provide gloves, tools as well as free transport to and from the project if needed.
What to bring/wear: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, waterproof jacket and a hat. Bring a water bottle and some food.
What we provide: all tools and gloves provided as well as training and an experienced team leader. Free transport options available (seats are limited!) - get in touch to book a seat.
