Whareroa Farm Reserve: Working Bee Begins Restoration of a Caravan with History

The old caravan previously lived on the tops of Kapiti Island. It was donated by the then National Provident fund and was used by possum trappers and by DOC rangers monitoring birds such as kokako.

It is planned to restore it and use it as a shelter at Whareroa Farm Reserve at the “Hub”. Volunteers have commenced cleaning it out, including removing an old rat’s nest. The inside and outside walls will be scrubbed and painted.

The Whareroa Guardians need to raise money to pay for benches and the painting of a mural on the outside walls. Information about its previous “life” will be on display.

Any donations gratefully received

Many thanks to Ann for the photos and the info
