Pamu Farms of New Zealand stands for best practice in sustainable and safe farming. They have so far protected more than 16,000 hectares of high-value conservation land under covenants with the Department of Conservation, the Queen Elizabeth II National Trust and other bodies. The areas include bush, wetlands, streams and ponds. In 2018, we partnered with Pamu to plant 8000 native trees and shrubs along waterways surrounding the farm. Trees help to absorb excess nutrients in the soil as well as stabilising river banks preventing erosion.
Join us for year two of this large-scale reforestation project. Free transport to and from Wellington City Centre to the farm in Moutoa. Snacks and tea/coffee provided.
Meeting point 7:30am Z station on Vivian Street. You will be dropped back here at the end of the day (around 3-4pm).
