Mark Saturday 10th of June down in your diaries for a planting day at the White Rock Hills property, Marohemo – your hosts Bryce & Aneta, Peter & Prue.  This follows on from the success of last season’s planting, and demonstrates their commitment to an ongoing restoration programme.  When you’ve met the people and you’ve seen the land and their animals it is easy to understand why they did so well in the Ballance Farm Environment Awards this year.  The planting site is just a couple of kilometres down Marohemo Rd by the bridge.  We will start at about 9 am and finish with lunch provided by our hosts.

Those who have been involved with Otamatea HarbourCare in previous years will know we have been honoured by the presence and support of Te Radar, not to mention part-time local, Paul Henry.  This year our freshly minted Mayor, Greg Gent has committed to making the time in his very busy schedule to come along and help out on this planting day.  So if you can come along to the planting day you will also have the chance not just to meet our Mayor, but also to work alongside him.  How good is that?
