The tree planting in July attracted about 20 keen Grottoites and others from around Onehunga. The Onehunga News came and spoke to some of the volunteers and took pictures (should be out in August). Over 400 native plants were planted under the forest canopy like puriri, titoki and karaka. On the fringes we planted kapuka, koromiko, kawakawa and purei round the wetland edge.
It was a wet and cold day but we were succesfully finished before the heavens opened and they did not close for the rest of July!! Check out these images I took this morning, the eel will be having a ball!
