Grab your friends and whānau and join us at Baring Head/Ōrua-pouanui for a morning of planting in this rugged corner of the Wellington Region.

A view towards Baring Head in East Harbour Regional ParkWe will be planting ngaio, tī kouka, harekeke and other native species in the valley alongside the Wainuiomata River. In a few years’ time it’s going to look very different so if you’d like to be part of the team restoring this location, we’d love your help. 

This planting day is suitable for people with medium fitness as you will need to carry plants and dig holes, but the area being planted is a flat walk away from the carpark and easy to get to. This is not suitable for young children and recommended for 13 years and above. There is a toilet in the carpark. No dogs are allowed in this park.

We provide: an experienced team leader, tools, gloves, health and safety management and training. 

What to bring/wear: gumboots/sturdy boots, comfortable clothes, and a waterproof jacket are essential. Layering and wearing a hat or beanie is a good way to stay warm. This site can be very exposed, so it is wise to bring extra clothes. Also bring a water bottle, lunch, and snacks. We will provide gloves and spades, but if you want to bring your favourites from home that would be very welcome. 

Weather: This event is weather dependent. We will update all those that have registered at the link above via email before 6pm on 8th July. To keep updated with essential information about our events, including postponements and cancellations, please click ‘interested’ on this Facebook event page
