Saturday 6 June 2015 - We will be planting. Please try and come to this working bee as we need every pair of hands we can get for planting.

9am - midday

Meet in the car park on Brymer Road opposite the zoo.

Bring a spade and wear your gumboots as it maybe wet in the area we're planting. Best to bring gloves to wear and most importantly morning tea.

It would really help us a lot with planning the amount plants to have at the Park on the 6th if you could RSVP by Wednesday 3 June if you're planning to attend. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning.

Cheers Moira Co-convenor of Friends of Waiwhakareke
