This is just to say a huge thank you to all of the lovely people who came to help with the planting day yesterday (Saturday 27th August) at the Tarawera Road refuse transfer station.
There were volunteers from Lake Okareka, Rotorua city, and Lake Tarawera - and some who had travelled some distances to get to the working bee. Thank you also to those people who helped out with baking for an awesome morning tea that was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you to the women from the regional council - Samantha, Rosemary, Hariata and her friend Erena - who brought the plants and then assisted Mike and Brian to lay them out ahead of the planters. Together we all planted approx 1400 plants before 11.30 am - and we also had morning tea and a catch up break during that time.
All give yourselves a huge pat on the back - well done - "Many hands make light work" - great team work.
Your help and support is most appreciated.
