Funding $33.000 available through the Regional Council for a project to plant natives along the river bank from the corner of Waimarama Road (bottom of Helen Barlow's to the marae)
Putea will be used to cover a facilitator who is locally based and will organize the work needed to plant and erect fencing to keep out stock.
The facilitator will work with locals, owners/trustees of adjoining properties, school children, P.D. workers, the marae trustees and volunteers as well as the HBRC. Work will need to be started as soon as possible preparing the banks and then planting as close as possible to winter.
There will be updates on the progress of work as it happens
