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.

Join us on Saturday 19th October for one of our last planting days of the year! We have a small number of plants left for the banks of a small stream running from Zealandia through to Birdwood Reserve. The area is overrun with weeds and rubbish so we need your help to help us to restore this precious freshwater resource!

Start time 9:45am, finishing around 1:30 -2pm

Free transport available from the Z station on Vivian Street at 9:30, please let us know if you need a ride or if you prefer to meet us on site.

What to bring/wear: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, hat and waterproof jacket essential. Layering and wearing a beanie is a good way to stay warm. 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 available from the Z station on Vivian Street at 8:30am - please let us know if you need a ride. Alternatively meet our team on site at 9am - project locations will be confirmed via email. Finish time varies but is usually around 3pm.
