Please RSVP for more information, and we'll send you the meeting point closer to the day.

Join us as we plant some trees on Matairangi Mt Victoria. It’s pretty easy to plant trees and it feels really good giving back to Papatūānuku. We’ll be planting natives along the stream bank so it shouldn’t be too tough. 


Healthy and thriving urban ngahere (forests) are a major way to protect against the impacts of climate change and to create urban safe havens for native species. Urban ngahere act as sponges when it rains heavily, and it also leads to the rejuvenation of our urban streams. 


Most cities have been built on top of streams and waterways. Many of the streams that used to be in Te Whanganui a Tara have been piped underground, but this is a movement to daylight and honour our urban streams. Alongside nourishing our precious, finite natural environment, planting trees is really good for your mental and physical health. 


What you need to bring:

Yourself, but dress warm! Wear a few layers. 

Bring some water. Stay hydrated.

Shovels and gloves provided.
