The first planting session is this coming Sunday, 23 May 2021 at the Stringer Embankment on Bronte Peninsula. The weather’s meant to be fine and cloudy, so it’ll be nice weather for digging holes! The session goes from 9am to 1pm and everyone is welcome. A slap-up morning tea will be provided.

Our next planting will be on Sunday 13 June, same start and finish time, at Manuka Island. However, if you want to get some practice in beforehand, the Mapua & Districts Community Association is planting at Dominion Flats on 29 and 30 May.

Please remember to bring gloves, a spade, and some drinking water. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear.
