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, weeding and seed collecting. Sometimes in the afternoon we will head out into the reserve to collect seeds or to maintain our planting sites.

We provide: an experienced team leader, tools and gloves, training, free transport if required.

What to wear/bring: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, jacket, hat/beanie, water and lunch

Bookings essential - email wellington@cvnz.org.nz to register or book online
