co-ordinator & plantersA free, highly practical training programme spanning June – Oct 2017. Registrations have now opened.

Run by the Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre this training programme will give hands-on experience to those wishing to be a planting co-ordinator as a paid job, volunteer or to kick-start their own local planting project.

You will get to learn real skills including plant ID, laying out plants, welcoming & managing volunteers, promotion, hosting (zero waste) events, health & safety, planning and team work. Along the way you will meet many interesting, committed people, have lots of fun and help plant 10-15,000 plants over this winter.

On completion of the programme participants will receive a certificate and the Course Leader will be pleased to provide a reference (on request) relating to your time on the programme for potential employees.

Please note before registering:

This free programme is hugely rewarding for those who go the distance and we place high expectations on everyone who participates. A single planting day can often attract over 60 people and there can sometimes be 2,000 plants to get in the ground. Hosting successful events like this can be exhilarating and memorable, however they quickly become a chore for everyone if there are not enough trainee co-ordinators to help on the day. Please only sign up for this awesome programme if you are enthusiastic, driven and determined to come to all of the events. You will not regret it!
