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.  Outside of the planting season (May-August) we require plenty of help releasing young plants from weeds, mulching, seed collecing and predator control (rats and mice). 

We provide: an experienced team leader, tools, gloves, health and safety management and training. Free transport available - let us know if you need a ride as seats are limited.

What to wear/bring: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, a hat/beanie, waterproof jacket, water bottle and food.

So help to grow a forest at the heart of Wellington! This project is in partnership with Rotary Club of Wellington and Wellington City Council. Supported by MPI Billion Trees Fund.
