Every Third Sunday of the month we have our group working bee – if we’re not in lockdown.
In summer we focus on taking care of our plants (“search and rescue”) and in winter on planting. And there is always our nursery! All our working bees are accessible for all ages, we can always find something appropriate for your age and fitness level – our youngest visiting volunteer was just 6 months old while our eldest volunteer is 92 and counting. That’s the benefit of our project: being in a wetland it’s flat and with our nursery, there is always something to do without having to bend over. But if you’re looking for a work out, we can certainly provide you with that as well!
With Covid still in the world, we’re just asking you to remember a couple of things – REGISTRATIONS are necessary to keep to MoH group sizes.
- bring your own mask, your own water bottle and your own lunch (no shared lunches yet, sorry)
- no need to bring your own gloves and spades, but if you do: everything needs to be squeaky clean because of kauri dieback
- when you’re sick, stay home and take care of yourself (always a good idea, you’ll get better quicker!)
Start time 10 am, finishing with an individually brought and socially distanced shared lunch/picnic at 1 pm – optional but recommended.
Ample parking on site, we’re at 111 Bethells Road – entry opposite the Waitakere River Fire station. Please contact me if you’re planning to come with a bigger group or have other questions: Annalily at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0212207136.
Hope to see you there! – Annalily & the trustees
