Forest & Bird North Shore Branch has managed this entire project on a volunteer basis, seeking quotes for weed control and plants and coordinating and managing the contracts. In addition we hold regular volunteer weed control and planting events. Initially on weekends only, there is now a keen regular weekday working group. Volunteer hours recorded are
2010 - 1216,
2011 - 1327,
2012 – 1709.
Our volunteer list includes about 160 members and local residents. Local residents have been circulated about the project twice and are encouraged to control weeds on the adjacent land.
We have had volunteer input from North Harbour Rotarians including assistance with resource consents, surveying, labour and BBQs.
