We have partnered with the Rotary Club of Wellington to grow a Forest at the Heart of Wellington. The aim of this project is to create a greener and healthier environment within the city and to showcase how humans and nature can thrive in the same place. We have planted 65,000 native trees in the Wellington town belt, this ambitious project involved volunteers from schools, communities, and corporations in the maintenance of these tree babies. Help is needed releasing young trees on previously-planted sites from weeds, mulching, seed collecting, and pest control (rats and mice). 

Exact locations will be confirmed closer to the time - we have planted sites to maintain all over the city.

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).
