Otamataea HarbourCare marked the retirement of Mark and Cindy Vincent from active roles with us by awarding them Life Membership at a dinner in September. Mark founded the organisation in 2014, and since that time he has been nursery manager and secretary, overseeing the growing of around 150,000 trees and shrubs which have been planted in the Otamatea area.  A move from Petley Road to Paparoa Station Road is now underway for the nursery, which will be reopening for the spring planting season under the management of Mark MacKenzie.

A working bee will be scheduled to help set up the new nursery. Volunteers are always welcome to join – click on the ‘Contact Us’ tab above.
