Today we planted our Trees for Survival plants on a local farm. The plants we planted, we got as tiny seedlings last September, potted on into bags and have grown and nurtured until today.
We have usually planted our plants later in the year but it is great to get them into the ground to get established before spring on such a beautiful autumn day.
Staff, and students with help from some parents spent a couple of hours planting about 600 plants on a steep sidling. We are proud to be helping the Bush to Burbs native bird corridor and riparian planting to help clean our waterways. The children worked hard and did an amazing job helped hugely by the predrilled holes to plant into. It was a great morning's work with awesome Tuakana Teina... our big students working with our younger ones....awesome mahi tahi...working together!
