- Departs from:
- Dallington Landing, between Dallington Tce and Gayhurst Rd
- Departure time:
In partnership with Christchurch City Council, as part of the Rotary Forests of Peace and Remembrance, in the Dallington Landing site, CVNZ volunteers are helping to create a forest in Christchurch's red zone. We'll be planting around 40,000 different trees, shrubs and grasses to increase biodiversity and recreate a forest-type environment. Over the summer months these plants need to be released from weeds and grass to give them the best start.
Come along and help us with mulching and releasing of plantings. 9:30am-12:30pm
Location: Meet under the large tree between Dallington Landing and Gayhurst Rd. Look out for the CVNZ flag along Gayhurst Rd on the left down from the bridge and the landing toilets.
Bike parking is even closer!
Bring: Your own gardening gloves, sturdy boots or shoes, a water bottle and sunhat. As part of our health and safety requirements, CVNZ requires volunteers to wear long sleeves and trousers as protection from the sun and vegetation.
We’ll supply tools, but you are welcome to bring your own - hedge shears or flax knives are most useful.
We'd love to see you there, so please register below, or contact April (firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 962 323) to let us know you're coming.
COVID-19: We will be following the advice from government and local council on all Covid-19 restrictions.
