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 showcase to the nation how humans and nature can thrive in the same place. To complete a project of this magnitude, help is needed to prepare the site for the upcoming planting season (May-August). Some tasks will include releasing young plants from weeds, mulching, seed collecting, 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.
