TAKE PART IN COM­MU­NITY PLANT­ING DAYS

The Napier Mail - - OUT & ABOUT -

Ar­bor Day isn’t the only time to plant trees! All through win­ter there are calls for vol­un­teers to help at parks around the coun­try. On Queen’s Birth­day week­end I joined about 180 other vol­un­teers at a tree plant­ing day at Tawha­ranui Re­gional Park on the coast east of Matakana, north of Auck­land. To­gether we planted more than 4500 plants (mostly manuka and flax) in only a cou­ple of hours. The event

was run by the Tawha­ranui Open Sanc­tu­ary So­ci­ety Inc (TOSSI) which works in part­ner­ship with Auck­land
