School planting at Whangawehi

Te Mahia School students have done an amazing job today at Whangawehi. Under a shinning sun, they established 200 trees and maintained the trees planted in the previous years. The Weta motels built during the winter were established along a fence line with the idea of using the wetas as monitoring tools.

At the end of the planting, the students sang the Whangawehi song they created, it was amazing to hear this very special song along the river.



Well done to you all, thank you to the School team, parents and Whangawehi volunteers.

Enjoy the photos. Years after years, I can see our tamariki growing and with them the seeds of a better future.
