Come lend at a hand at the CVNZ nursery for Conservation week! We’re pleased with the success of our seedlings so far, however the nursery itself is in need of some revamping and maintenance. On this day we will be laying down some weed mat and weatherproofing some of the structures. We will also be painting a Conservation Week mural to celebrate our native flora and fauna.

The plants grown in our nursery will be used for our Forest in the Heart of Wellington project, a long term initiative in celebration of the Rotary Club of Wellington's Centenary which falls in 2021. 

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.
