Village Green Restoration - working bee 9th June

The Site is looking great, with plenty of mulch and rain it is well ready for planting. As well as our own nursery plants Auckland City Council Parks Department have donated a further 300.

I am not sure of the quantities per species as they are still holding them for us until planting day but will include manuka, kanuka, cabbage trees, flax and sedges.

We are still short of plants and I have approached Lions for funding to purchase native root-trainers and hope to hear back in the next week or so.

Meanwhile we should plough on and plant what we do have while there is still some warmth in the soil, so

our next working bee is on Sunday 9th June 10.00am

unless pouring with rain, if the weather is too bad we will make it Sunday 16th June 10:00am.

Bring a spade, water, your friends and your smile!

Thanks for your support, Erin
