Mahanihani Restoration takes a Big Step Forward

65 helpers have just put another 2000 plants in the ground at Mahanihani! Fantastic teamwork and MANY thanks to everyone who joined us in those majestic surroundings, helping out so willingly, with lots of smiles and spadework. The weather gods were exceptionally kind, we had perfect conditions. All in all - a wonderful morning, ending appropriately with one of Leonie’s very special lunches (venison casserole on the menu no less!) at the historic Awhitu Central Hall. Here are a few photos - but they can only show a small part of the landscape and our team of helpers, as the areas we were planting in were so extensive. Huge thanks to each and every one of you who are making this great project happen.  The concensus was ‘what a memorable day we’ve had….’
