Car­ing for our soil and wa­ter

Kids Go Gardening - - News -

Kowhai trees are great for plant­ing on stream edges. They help pre­vent soil ero­sion and keep the wa­ter clean. Kowhai trees grow wild all over New Zealand in sunny places on for­est edges and along­side rivers and lakes in the North and South Is­lands. But there aren’t as many as there used to be. That’s why kids and par­ents all round the coun­try are get­ting in­volved in plant­ing projects like Project Gold in Otago and Green­ing Taupo - restor­ing Kowhai to their nat­u­ral habi­tats.
