Whangarei - Native plants, seedlings, seeds, mulch, and planting for regenerating bush

Kia ora, This is an ongoing, longer request for support establishing part of a wildlife corridor between the Pukenui and Otaika forests. We are regenerating bush on our property in Maunu, situated between the two reserves. Our priority is converting ~4 hectares of kikuyu-infested paddock into native bush. We've started planting ourselves, but we are going to need help. The long-term plan is to get the property protected in perpetuity as a QEII trust to preserve as wildlife and native bush preserve. The first step is replacing the grass with native plantings. What we are looking for to help make this happen: *Plants - Particularly pioneer species like manuka, kanuka, large harakeke, cabbage trees, Pittosporum crassifolium/karo, whau, red mapou, makomako, lacebark, mahoe, five finger, etc. Do you have a flat of manuka or kanuka seedlings? That can help! Splitting or removing a native? Send it our way! We also have shady marshy areas of paddock which need reforesting. *Mulch - We'll need heaps of mulch to protect our new plantings. Do you know where to get some? Will you have some? Can you dump some here? Unfortunately we don't have a truck for pickup. *Planting - Assuming we can get the requisite plants and mulch, we'll need help getting them in the ground. This is primarily a wintertime activity. *Money? - We've reached out to lots of departments and organizations about grants and funds to get any plants or mulch. Almost everyone is tapped out, or waiting until they get new guidelines for funding next year. We've signed up for notifications for a lot. We've also put in inquiries with private companies that share costs.  Another option is crowd-funding through the community, but we're not currently pursuing that until we've run through the other choices. Thank you, J & E

Kaitaia: Volunteers of all ages welcome at the community garden!

Kia ora Timebankers! Our community garden is not a community garden without a community. Are you interested in sharing your knowledge and experience, and learning from others in a garden context? Are you interested to learn how to grow your own (organic) food? Are you keen to just help out for a couple of hours in the garden on a Tuesday or Thursday morning, and take fresh organic food home? Do you just want to come along to chat about gardening and maybe bring some questions? Our garden is open to all. If you have any questions or want to express interest in joining us, please message us by replying to this request! The garden is behind Kaitaia Community House at 12 Puckey Ave, and open sessions for volunteers are Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8-10AM (summer hours). If that time doesn't work for you but you're still keen to come down, send us a message, and we'll see what we can do!
