The volunteer planting programme restores native forest to designated areas of the Port Hills. Volunteers plant native trees each winter and maintain them in spring and autumn to reduce competition from grass.
All of our remaining public planting days are fully booked.
If you are interested in being on a waiting list in case of cancellations, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise we'd love your help with Spring maintenance days - see below for dates.
Meet at Princess Margaret Hospital at 8.45am for morning events and 12.15pm for afternoon events.
Volunteers will be transported by bus to the planting sites for free thanks to the support of Environment Canterbury.
For any queries, please contact Ranger Di Carter, email@example.com

Bring a friend to 'free a tree' from weeds.
Maintenance is the most critical part of ecological restoration success. Without regular maintenance for the first three years, plants wouldn't survive due to grass competition.
