Plantout Days 2021
Kia ora koutou,
I hope that everyone has been able to enjoy a bit of nature near to home during lockdown. Our team are working from home at this time and looking forward to getting back out planting alongside volunteers and landowners soon.
As we anticipate the easing of Covid-19 Alert Levels back down to Level 3 this week and eventually to Level 2 we have rescheduled our 2021 Volunteer Plantouts to start the weekend of September 25th. Please see the new dates and links to register below.
While it is important we get seedlings planted before the hot dry weather arrives, the health of our volunteers and team is most important thing. Current advice shows that we can hold Volunteer Plantouts at Alert Level 2 with the following precautions:
Limiting participants to 100
Having QR codes and manual sign in available at all events
Food is to be packaged and served rather than help yourself
Physical distancing of strangers on site and reducing capacity on buses to allow this. Those who prefer can self drive.
Wearing masks where physical distancing is difficult
Regular sanitation of surfaces and having extra sanitisation stations available for volunteers
Volunteers use the same planting equipment all day.
The Te Ara Kākāriki team are really looking forward to the planting season which will see us planting at our first two legacy sites, adding to existing sites and creating many new Greendots to provide connections between the mountains to the sea.
