The Aramiro Whenua Trustees invite owners and their whanau to our annual planting days on the 10th and 17th of June 2023.  Our planting days are an important part of our long term goals to preserve and enhance our whenua now and for our future generations.  It is also an opportunity to come back to the whenua reconnect with whanau and replenish the wairua.

  • What will be planted?

A range of native plants will be planted over the course of the two days.  They have been selected for resilience and durability to last generations and sustain all weather and environments.

  • What do we need to bring?

Gumboots, raincoat (spade optional) and your awhi

  • Will kai be provided on the day?


  • What time will it finish?

Approximately 3.00pm or when our whanau decide.

  • Where will they be planted?

The native plants will be placed in specifically  marked out areas to ensure that they preserve and protect our whenua and waterways. 

  • Is there easy access for whanau?

Our Taiao team will pre-dig holes and have plants laid out for our whanau and will do there best to ensure the safest and easiest areas are available, so no long walks, heavy lifting or climbing involved.

  • Any Health & Safety protocols?

Our team are first aid certified and will have their kits on-hand if needed.  We do ask that our whanau remain vigilant on Covid protocols.  If you are sick or feeling unwell, please whanau keep safe and remain at home.
