Our Land of Milk and Honey is a family farm located on the lower foothills of Maungatautari Mountain – about 20 minutes south of Cambridge. The owners are deeply committed to sustainability and have planted 30,000 trees in their wetland area.

On World Wetland’s Day 2019, we invite you to join us to “release” some trees in their land at the foothills of Maungatautari Mountain. Releasing is when we pull grass out from around a newly planted tree to allow light through. We want newly planted trees to thrive and grow to maturity. When our wetlands thrive, so do our waterways – and we all want clean water!
Go Eco is organising carpooling to support this event and will be helping out with the tree releasing. We will be leaving at 9.15am from Go Eco (188 Commerce St) and should be back in Hamilton around 3pm. This will be a fun day out and a delicious BBQ lunch will be provided for volunteers.
A full health and safety briefing and gloves will be provided for adults. Children are welcome, but they will need to be well supervised by adults, able to help out with the releasing and will need to bring their own gloves.
