Annual Matariki Multicultural Tree Planting

July 15 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm


EarthDiverse, the Waikato Interfaith Council, the Waikato Multicultural Council, GoEco, Kaivolution, Tui 2000, Friends of Waiwhakareke, the Bahá’í Community, Shama, Waikato Biodiversity Forum and the Hamilton City Council are co-organising a community-wide tree planting event to take place in Hamilton on Saturday 15 July 2023, 10:30am-1:30pm (Rain or Shine). Please enter from the Rotokauri Rd entrance (corner of Rotokauri Rd and Kourataki Rd) and not via the Brymer Rd entrance across from the Zoo.

Bring a spade or shovel, gumboots, appropriate outdoor weather gear (e.g. hat, rain gear, sunglasses), some gardening gloves, water and a big smile. If you don’t want to dig there are other ways to help out (like bringing a small food donation, or helping with setting out and serving a light lunch). A light lunch will be served (courtesy of EarthDiverse, Kaivolution, Go Eco, Waikato Interfaith Council, Shaheed Bhagat Singh Trust, the Bahá’í Community, Ahmaddiyya Muslim Community, Waikato Arab Social Club, and others). Any ready to eat food donations (e.g. bread, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, baked goods, UHT milk, tea bags, instant coffee, juice, etc.) will be much appreciated. Please bring your own plates, cutlery or mugs in order to minimise waste. 100 people would mean planting 5-10 saplings each.

This event is free, family-friendly and fun! Open to all. Mark this date in your diaries now! Come and help offset your carbon usage!
