We have partnered with the Rotary Club of Wellington and Wellington City Council 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. 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. This project is in partnership with Rotary Club of Wellington, Wellington City Council and supported by the MPI Matariki Tu Rakau fund.

Tree planting happens in winter (end May - early September) each year. Our volunteer days are a great way to enjoy the outdoors, to meet people and to help care for the environment. So join us at one (or more) of our weekend planting dates this year!

Where: the planting site at Tawatawa Reserve in Island Bay is a 10 minute walk up a moderate-steep track from the carpark at the end of Frobisher Street. 

We provide: an experienced team leader, tools, gloves, health and safety management and training. 

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