2022 Matariki community planting days
Matariki is a star cluster which reappears in our sky’s during mid-winter and marks the beginning of the new lunar year.
Matariki is a time of renewal and new life – and also the best tree planting season. Our community tree-planting days will be held across the region this winter.
The trees and shrubs we plant will make our city more beautiful, create carbon sinks to help reduce emissions, and reduce siltation into our harbours and waterways.
