Greening Taupo

Let's start off the planting seasons with a real family affair!

Greening Taupo the Vegatator Vennell Team and Taupo District Council are launching the Wairakei Corridor Restoration Project.

Greening Taupo's vision is to work with businesses, organisations, schools and the community to improve and restore the Taupo environment for people and the native wildlife. Greening Taupo have had three small plantings along the Wairakei corridor with the community but believe it is now appropriate to actually hold an event with our partners and the community. In this way, we can recognise the incredible fundraising effort and contribution by Shawn Vennell together with promoting the project with the community.

With the funds raised by Shawn's amazing effort within the King of the Ring Shawn’s vision is to use this money to replant the Wairakei Corridor with planting more bird attracting species and to enhance the scenic qualities as well as the ecological values of the area with a mixture of native plantings.

With your help we can:
- Plant and help maintain sites throughout the area
- Bring back the birds
- This will provide native seed source for the increase natural spread of native plants
- Reduce areas of weeds that need to be sprayed
- Improve our visual landscape
- Restore our natural heritage
- Increase recreational opportunities
- Become a healthier, greener community

Come along to the large rest area along the Thermal Explorer Highway (900m before the karapiti rd huka falls rd intersection) and see what we have been planning, come help plant hundreds of native plants then grab a sausage from my neighbourhood team.

There will be face painting, Cath from Bike Taupo will be there with the kids bikes and loads of fun for everyone to enjoy.

Bring your gumboots gardening gloves & spades, please bring suitable wet weather gear if required.
See you there!
