We have partnered with the Rotary Club of Wellington to grow a Forest at the Heart of Wellington. This ambitious project involves volunteers from schools, communities, and corporations in the planting and maintenance of 65,000 native trees in the central Wellington Town Belt on Mount Victoria. 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. Help is needed releasing young trees planted in winter from weeds, mulching, seed collecting, and predator control (rats and mice). 

What to wear/bring: sturdy boots or gumboots, long sleeves and pants, a hat/beanie, a drink bottle and some food.

What we provide: gloves, tools, high-vis vests, an experienced team leader, training. Get in touch to book a free ride from the Z station on Vivian Street.
