This is part a volunteer planting day and for me, a trip down memory lane as my parents were stationed there in the late 40’s (okay, a little before my time) and the house that they may have lived in is still there.
From the Motuihe Wharf it is approximately a 10 minute walk to the nursery where we will be divided into groups and given planting instructions. We plant for 2 – 2.5 hours and then it is back to the nursery for lunch. Free time after lunch.
Things you need to know:
