20 years, 85,000 trees

The Friends of Maara Roa AGM, on Monday 6 July, marked 20 years since the group was established in 2000, and we had a splendid cake to celebrate the milestone.  Chairman Sef Truyens, who cut the cake, touched on some of the many highlights in his annual report.  He reminded members that the website www.maararoa.org.nz, although it has not been possible to update it recently, is a treasure trove of past history and well worth visiting.

By the end of the 2020 season, FMR will have planted over 85,000 trees, many of them raised from seedlings in our nursery, currently based at Aotea College.
