Arbor Day will be marked with a free family event at Pukeiti.

The fun day is aimed at children with games and activities celebrating how wonderful trees are. This will include new plantings in Pukeiti’s Explorer Club Garden, established by children at previous Explorer Days.

Sunday’s event will run rain or shine. Indoor areas are available for if the activities need to be moved under cover. Bring food and drink, gumboots and clothing suitable for outdoor games in the garden and getting mucky.

Arbor Day is observed around 6 June annually. It was first held in Nebraska in 1872, and New Zealand’s first Arbor Day was in Greytown in 1890.

Explorer Club fun days are run on the first sunday of every second month at Pukeiti and are part of a year-round programme of free public events at Pukeiti and at Tupare and Hollard Gardens, two other heritage properties owned and managed by the Taranaki Regional Council on behalf of the people of the region. All three properties are open daily.

For more information, see www.pukeiti.org.nz, www.tupare.info and www.hollardgardens.info. Social media users can also follow the three Regional Gardens on Facebook (TaranakiRegionalGardens) and Twitter (@TaranakiRG).

The first of the winter season High Teas will be held at Tupare in New Plymouth on Sunday (3 June). Run on the first Sunday of the month from June to October, the High Teas are a fundraiser for Mangorei School, and pre-booking is essential. See www.tupare.info for information.
