If you enjoy getting your hands dirty, then join us for a day at our nursery where we are growing thousands of native seedlings destined for our Forest at the Heart of Wellington project on Mount Victoria.
Forest at the Heart of Wellington involves volunteers from schools, communities and corporations in the planting of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt, bringing the total number of trees planted by Wellington Rotary to 100,000. This project will create a substantial new habitat for native birds which are increasingly venturing beyond the protective fence of Zealandia.
We need help at our nursery potting up seedlings and weeding. Sometimes in the afternoon, we will head out into the reserve to collect seeds or to maintain our planting sites.
What to wear/bring: Sturdy boots are essential, long sleeves, and long trousers. Ensure you pack warm clothes such as a jacket, beanie, jumper and a rain jacket to protect you against wind and rain. Bring a full water bottle and snacks!
What we provide: fully trained team leader/s, gloves, tools and training.
Free transport to and from Wellington City centre is available (contact us to arrange a pick-up).
