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. 100,000 native trees were planted in the Wellington town belt last year, this ambitious project involved volunteers from schools, communities, and corporations in the planting and maintenance of these tree babies.

Join us for a day (or more) as we head back to Mount Victoria to 'release' native trees from growing weeds that can smother and prevent the plants growth. This is a chance to engage with nature, gain new skills and meet some local communities!

What to wear/bring: Sturdy boots are essential, please bring eye protection/glasses, 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 seat with your booking).
