School planting with Te Mahia school

Te Mahia students came along the Whangawehi stream to continue their restoration programme. They established 250 trees in a couple of hours. They were all happy to see that most of the trees planted last year had survived.

Very soon they will be placing amongst the native plants Blue Penguin boxes and traps to increase the biodiversity of the area.

A Totara was planted in remembrance of Edward Hammond, our carver. A carving will be done by the students during our carving workshop planned for the end of the month.
