It’s always interesting asking local business operators how they ended up…
In partnership with Multicultural Nelson Tasman and Friends of the Maitai, this planting will commemorate the journeys that many people have made to a new home in Nelson Whakatū and celebrate the vibrant community that we are today. This is year one of a three-year project.
We will provide food and warm drinks to volunteer planters and will have some games and educational opportunities for the younger participants.
This upcoming planting season will see the first 26,000 plants of the total 125,000 being planted throughout the catchment, including through a series of commemorative plantings funded through the Ministry for Primary Industries’ (MPI) Matariki tu Rakau programme.
Matariki tu Rakau supports tree planting to commemorate the contribution that people and their work have made to our region. There are some remarkable stories to be celebrated.
Bring your family and friends along to plant a tree for the future and help restore the mighty forests of the Maitai.
Project Mahitahi is grateful for the assistance provided through MPI, and our community partners who are commemorating the people and events that have helped shape the place we live in today.
