A cool, big fine morning after all the stormy weather was a blessing for the many who donned their gumboots and gloves and planted the hundreds of native plants in the area where we also piled the mulch in Apirana Reserve.  As you will see from the short video (click on picture), we were all having a great time!
The number of members and many from the local community were such that the planting was all done in 1 hours and 10 minutes!  The next half hour was spent enjoying each other's company over a well-earned morning tea that had been provided by a number of contributions including from some who could not be there but none-the-less wanted to support, such as Isabella's home baking - believe me the morning tea was well received. 
Thank you to Peter B for organising.
