Community Native Plant Nursery.
With our new PGU (Plant Growing Unit) and all the hard work collecting and germinating seeds, our nursery team will have a large number of plants ready for planting next autumn.
Our nursery manager is Robin Foubister email: firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information and get involved.
We regularly get donations of native plants, so keep an eye on this page if you are planting or re-vegetating at your place, and likewise if you have surplus native plants or are removing flax (which can be replanted) let us know and we can post details here: email@example.com
We have just taken delivery of a shiny new Plant Growing Unit to grow our plants for our various projects in Muriwai. This was made possible by a grant from the Lion Foundation and in co-operation with the local Rangers.
The PGU is a quantum leap for us and will enable MEACT to have thousands of seedlings ready for planting next spring.
We need more volunteers to help care for our seedlings... please contact Robin - our nursery coordinator.

Our first working bee for 2013 kicked off with a great turnout of adult and kids (KidsEco club) volunteering to help "bag up" seedlings and prepare the area for the influx of plants.
This was also a chance to meet our new Nursery coordinator Robin Foubister.

Nursery 'Manager' Needed.
Sadly, Vicki who has been doing awesome work getting our plant nursery up and running this year finds herself unable to commit to this project in 2013 because of study commitments.
Our plant nursery is an integral part of our 2013 planting plans, and we have some BIG projects for planned next year!
We're looking for a volunteer with a keen interest in plant propagation who could help put together and manage a team of horticultural enthusiasts.
If you would like to help with this project please contact us by email: email@example.com or contact Phelan on either 021 844 124 /09 4118847 .
If you are interested in helping in our native plant nursery on a Sunday morning once a month please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. No experience necessary, activities include collecting and sowing seed, potting up seedlings and weeding.
