What a day!!! We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a more enthusiastic bunch of people last Sunday. A large group of Alsco employees and other supporters of the Million Metres project came out to Matuku Link for a family day to help us ‘search and rescue’ plants (weeding), ‘walk and talk’ (guided by trustee John Sumich) and ‘plan and plant’. And they did the planting with such vigor that we had to rush back to the nursery to get more!

Our own volunteers were team leaders, parking wardens, H&S specialists (how to carry a spade!) and catering chefs, with five types of home made soups, cooking lovely sausages and three types of vegetarian options. Thank you so much for all your help, our beautiful native species are very thankful.

(and don’t forget we’re trying to raise funds for the future plants: the Million Metres project)
