History of Huia Weed Warriors

When we started we took an area which was visible from the road. For the first year we dived around too much and failed to divide up the area and work in sections. We have worked smarter since. Most of our planting has been sourced locally and potted up by one of the group members. We have noticed a lot more birds as we have worked. It has been exciting to see the amount of regeneration occurring as the weeds have been eradicated. A weed bin for the community which our group was instrumental in obtaining, has been used by many people. It is frequently abused as well. I think there needs to be a lot more education amongst community groups to find out what plants are appropriate for environmentally sensitive areas. Perhaps this could be done through the Rate Payers and Residents groups.
