Friends of Waiwhakareke Working Morning
Time:   9am-12midday
Meet on Bavistock Road entrance beside the Park sign.

Bring gumboots, spades, gloves and morning  tea.   

We will be planting in gaps (infill planting).  We can also plant along the fence area parallel to Baverstock Road, near the entrance plantings from last year, depending on numbers of volunteers attending. We would like to create a more defined track between the existing plantings and the stock fence.

Calling all Riverlea supporters

We are having a big working bee 1pm to 3pm on Saturday 25 June to plant 1400 native seedlings in the open area near the northern end of the Hammond Bush boardwalk.
This is the culmination of two or three years' work clearing the area and suppressing bamboo and other persistent weeds.

If you're able to help please let me know by return email so that we can get some ideas of numbers.
