For your diaries, tree planting is going to take place on the Project over the last weekend in August. So pencil Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 August “Tree Planting Project Rameka” onto your calendars and make the pilgrimage up to the Project for a 10 am start.
Last year, we put 400 plants in the ground. This year, the aim is 1,000 plants. Lots of people have asked to be involved in the tree planting on the project, so we’re confident 1,000 trees can be snuggly rooted into the ground by the end of August.
As an added bonus, the Global Volunteer Network (a tourist venture, offering overseas visitors the chance to give something back to New Zealand’s environment with some serious conservation work) has pledged to come across to the Project every three months from November to get involved in the all essential weeding, watering, and pest control. These trees are going to be given the Rolls Royce treatment.
So, start sharpening your grubbers, booking your tickets, and limbering up for the end of August. See you there!
