Re-Genesis – Planting Day

After the damage caused by the fires in February 2017, it’s time to continue the work bringing life back to the Port Hills. 500 native trees have been donated by Trees for Canterbury to aid the replanting, now we just need some re-planters – come and join us! We’ll be working with the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust and land owners from two properties to re-vegetate areas devastated by the fires.

Spaces are limited so get in quick!
