Matariki Community Planting
10am-12pm on 11 and 25 July, on Parahaki Mountain enter via Abbey Caves Rd.
To mark the special time of year Puanga and Matariki, we are inviting the community to take part in three planting days on the eastern side of Parihaka, an area that was damaged by the fire in November.
The Matariki Community Planting Days will be held on Saturday 11 July and Saturday 25 July between 10am and 12noon followed by a light lunch.
The entrance to the site is at the Parihaka Mountain Bike car park on Abbey Caves Road about 400 meters from Whareora Road. We have 10,000 native trees to plant as part of the Matariki Tu Rākau programme.
