EarthDiverse, the Waikato Interfaith Council, the Waikato Multicultural Council, GoEco, Kaivolution, Tui 2000, Friends of Waiwhakareke, the Bahá’í Community, Waikato Biodiversity Forum, Artmakers Trust and the Hamilton City Council are co-organising a Community-wide tree planting event to take place in Hamilton on Saturday 19 June 2021, 10:30 am-1:30 pm (Rain Date in case of absolutely awful weather will be on Saturday 26 June).
Please arrive at 10:30 am if you wish to plant saplings, as latecomers will miss the briefing and the area that we're targeting this year for planting. We also need to use the Rotokauri Rd gate this year due to works at the Brymer Rd entrance across from the Zoo. Signs and traffic volunteers will be out on the day to guide people to the correct location.
Bring a spade or shovel, gumboots, appropriate outdoor weather gear (e.g. hat, rain gear, sunglasses), some gardening gloves, water bottle and a big smile. If you don’t want to dig there are other ways to help out (like bringing a small food donation, or helping with setting out and serving a light lunch). A light lunch will be served (courtesy of Kaivolution, GoEco, WIFCO, the Bahá’í Community and others). Please bring your own plates, cutlery or mugs in order to minimise waste. 100 people would mean planting 5-10 saplings each. Mark this date in your diaries now! Come and help offset your carbon usage!
