Come along to one of Kaipatiki Project’s Bushcare days this winter. Held over 4 weekends from May to July you and your family and friends can come and help keep Kaipatiki and Upper Harbour beautiful by weeding and planting.
Run by Kaipatiki Project, the environment centre of the North Shore, community planting days are aimed at getting everybody and outside and looking after the environment they live in.
Children love the experience as Alex Davis age 7 from Kauri Park School said “I really enjoy tree planting as I get to plant a tree, learn about the bush, use some “proper” tools like a spade and get to have some food at the end!”’
Janet Cole, Manager of Kaipatiki Project says “This is an opportunity for local people to get actively involved in changing the face of their neighbourhood for the better and make a lasting difference to their environment. You will meet many interesting, committed people, have lots of fun and help plant some plants over this winter.”
Families are invited to come along and make a fun morning of it, refreshments are provided to all planters. Planters are encouraged to wear gumboots and bring gloves and a spade if they have one.
The dates of the community bushcare days are :
Sat 26th May – Chelsea Pony Club, Sat 9th June -Glenfield Road, Sat 23rd June – Paa Harakeke, Sat 14th July – Domain Road.
