New Faces at Landcare…

We are very pleased to welcome Nicky Reynolds to the position of Project Lead of the Te Korowai o Papatuanuku project at Landcare.

Nicky is a much respected member of Landcare and the Awhitu community.  She comes from a background of conservation, horticulture and team management. Te Korowai o Papatuanuku, which translates as ‘the cloak of mother earth’, is a project funded through MPI and the Billion Trees fund and enables Landcare to provide subsidised plants and support for restoration and revegetation work on private land on the Awhitu Peninsula. 

We also warmly welcome Ngati Kaihau to the nursery. Ngati, who affiliates to our local iwi Ngati te Ata, will be supporting our Nursery Manager Sigrid Sharplin to manage the increase in plant volumes in the nursery over the next 4 years. Ngati lives locally and will be known to many people already for his work as an arborist and bush maintenance services.
