Planting days in Auckland South

Back to Te Māra a Tāne.

Auckland South TfS Field Officer Dianne Paterson and Auckland Council TfS Planting Day Co-ordinator, Anna McNaughton, have supplied a great snapshot of 2013 planting days in south of Auckland. Participating schools in this review include Patumahoe, Waiau Pa, Waiuku, Pukekohe East and Maraetai Beach schools.
