Spring Working Bee Ngunguru 16 November
(Also fits teams)
We are volunteers restoring Puke Kopipi's native vegetation through weed removal and native plantings. Turning this landmark behind the Sports Complex in Kopipi Crescent into a highly visible, attractive bush feature in Ngunguru. Creating a public walkway to the top - check out the view! - or locals and visitors. Also, providing an accessible tsunami escape route for the Ngunguru community.
We hold regular weeding and planting days and we welcome new volunteers to come along. Plantings usually take place in Winter and weeding in Spring and Autumn. Working Bees are on Saturdays 2-5pm, approx once/month. Related work takes place periodically throughout the year on Tuesdays through the EarthEd group based at Ngunguru School.
