We had an email from Ben Wood, Parks and Property Officer, Horowhenua District Council:
We’d like to carry out a planting day of Spinifex (2500 plants) and Pingao (500 plants) on Saturday the 22nd of August starting at 9:30am.
In other years planting has gone very quickly — with enough volunteers it can take as little as an hour.
Please join us at the north end of Reay Mackay Grove and lend a hand to plant a few plants.
Bring a spade (if you can) and some friends or family.
Plantings from previous years have grown really well. Just look at the photos below from 2014 and 2016!
