Update for Plantings on the Port Hills.

All Port Hills plantings are under direct control of the Council Ranger Service.

Due to the fire there will be a series of events to replant all that was lost on Community Land.  To join these events you will need to register to attend.  The registration is not yet open but we will post the link as soon as it is available.  Trees for Canterbury will be supplying plants to all of the sites rather than just Marleys Hill.  Some of these plants have been made available due to Donations from Offcut Caps and also 1More round boxing gym.  We thank them for the support. The Council are also supplying plants. The following dates are fixed but watch out for the registration.
