Forward Whangarei have partnered with Te Uru Rākau to plant 50,000 native trees across Northland, over the next two years, through their Matariki Tu Rākau programme.
Forward is a plastic free store opening this winter in Whangarei. Our kaupapa is to help enable and empower our community to create a cleaner, healthier, more sustainable Earth - and so we think planting trees is a great way to start doing this.
We have therefore created the ‘Tree Team’ project to bring our communities together to help achieve this goal. Forward have collaborated with a range of organisations and planting groups to create a jam-packed calendar of planting events this season.
We are hoping the community will join our ‘Tree Team’ to work alongside us; restoring our whenua, and creating peaceful areas where we can reflect on the past, whilst the future grows around us.
Take a look at the map to see the sites we are planting this year and then check out the events link to see when the planting days are on.
Bring a smile and let’s start planting….
Our progress so far…
