Tukurua Blueberries Bush

Small scale (c 0.5 ha) restoration of lowland and lowland wetland flora on pakihi. Planting from scratch with natives of local provenance wherever possible. The aim is to recreate what was here before land clearance with the whole suite of natives. The "group" is comprised of... the landowner. Sourcing local plants and ensuring the trees planted cover as much of the original flora as possible are the only real problems I face. I am building on the previous owners plantings which began c.2008.

Volcano to Sea

Volcano to Sea is an urban community catchment restoration project by NZ Landcare Trust helping the local community to improve their environment. Based in Howick, Auckland this innovative three year project aims to capture the enthusiasm and energy of the local community, enabling them to make a positive contribution to their local environment. This catchment scale project will create an ecological corridor linking a dormant volcano called Pigeon Mountain/O Huiarangi with the sea via Wakaaranga Creek, Pakuranga Stream and the Tamaki River.

Windsor Park Ark

We are an interested group of teachers and students at Rangitoto College who are working each year to clear weed species from a small area of bush in the school grounds and replace them with native species. We aim to turn this 3 ha area into a wonderful outdoor classroom resource with paths, signage and other useful resources for students and the community. Neighbouring properties are also involved
