How you can contribute

Community planting and volunteer work

The support of volunteers from across the community is crucial to the development and enhancement of Waiwhakareke.

Their contribution of time and effort enables gradual growth of the project.

We encourage community planting activities across the city, and Waiwhakareke is a popular location for groups wanting to undertake community work, or team-building activities.

Our Community Planting Co-ordinator can work directly with your group to contribute to Waiwhakareke.
