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.

This project 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. 

Activites include re-potting seedlings, some identification and labelling of plants and weeding. You can either meet the team on site or arrange a free pick up from the following locations (bookings essential)

8.15 Z petrol station, Vivian Street

8.30 Our office at 21B Manchester Tce Melrose

09.00 Meet the team at Tawatawa Reserve (ask for directions to the meeting point)
