Living legends Orokonui plant site

By Lucy Hardy

A big thanks to all the volunteers who have been helping to maintain
the Living Legends native plants at the Orokonui Scenic Reserve. We
had phenomenal weed growth in spring last year, so there has been
plenty of work to do.
A group of happy volunteers made a huge difference to some of the
plantings on Sunday 15 January. They weeded and re-matted with coffee
sacks an area along the river edge.
We are planning another working bee on Sunday 26 February starting at
9.30 am, and we plan to be out there for the morning. We are looking
for more volunteers, so if you could spare an hour or so to help it
would be very much appreciated. Of course you can go down there any
time you like and release a few plants as every bit helps.
