Community Planting Days

Community planting days are a great chance to head out to a beautiful location, get your hands dirty and enjoy a morning in the fresh air. You will see first hand where plants from the nursery end up and help to rebuild native habitats one plant at a time.

Absolutely everyone is welcome, no experience is required, and our core volunteers will be on hand to show you how it’s done. Your help will make a difference and you will leave your mark on the Wakatipu landscape for years to come.

WHAT TO BRING: Hat, gloves, water, good footwear, a shovel (or borrow one of ours), along with your friends, family and desire to leave your lasting legacy on our local environment!
