Planting bee on Silverstream Road


Ngaio Progressive Association has organised working bees on the banks of the Silverstream behind Ngaio Playcentre since 2005. Over time, a wilderness area of gorse, blackberry and broom has become a lovely little area of regenerating bush.

Our next working bee is on Saturday 4 August from 10:00am – 12:00. We will plant about 70 seedlings and weed around older plants. We will need to keep weeding for a few more years yet. Meet at Silverstream Reserve beside the playcentre on Silverstream Road, Crofton Downs. Bring sturdy shoes – suitable for leaping over the stream – spades, gloves and warm clothing.

Coffee and cake afterwards.

If you can help, contact Trevor Lloyd on 479 5438, email ngaiopa@gmail.com, or just turn up on the day.
All welcome.
