Plant Valo­nia

Central Leader - - Letters -

Re­cently I found my­self in Valo­nia Re­serve, on the op­po­site side of Oak­ley Creek from the Al­lan Wood Re­serve.

The Al­lan Wood Re­serve has a foot­path and is main­tained by the Auck­land City Coun­cil.

Valo­nia, on the other hand, has an un­kept look, with the po­ten­tial to be­come a nat­u­ral wet­land area.

Could it be planted, not just with fl axes, but other wa­ter loving plants?

This would at­tract more birds, it would still act as a nat­u­ral drainage area for New Wind­sor, plus ab­sorb­ing the car­bon which

we hu­mans con­tinue to pro­duce. S H E E L A H C H A L K L E N
