Trees for Survival

On the 27th of June, the Environmental Committee held our annual tree planting day with Trees for Survival on a local farm in Karaka. We planted 945 native trees along waterways and on hillsides for the purpose of preventing wetland erosion. The cabbage trees, mānuka and kānuka will also provide food and habitat for birds.

Our tree planting day provides an opportunity for us to make a difference to our environment whilst learning about conservation, revegetation, wetland restoration and protecting stream quality.

A big thank you to Sally Clegg from Trees for Survival, Drury Rotary for sponsoring our plants, Phil, Trevor and Peter from Drury Rotary for helping us plant and to Howick and Eastern for sponsoring our bus.

A special thanks to Chris and Sally Guy for being wonderful hosts on the day and providing us with an incredible lunch!
