Josh and Jo have a 15ha block in Saqa Way, Matapouri on the beautiful Tutukaka Coast, they are committed to restoring the land back to native forest and need help to remove wilding pines. We will put on a sausage sizzle (meat and plant based) to follow as a thank you!
We will meet on the grassed area opposite Kukupa Place on Matapouri Road (in between the two bridges) at 9am..with the plan to have everyone onsite by 9:30 and finish up at 12:30 with a sausage sizzle ..for those that need to get away we will start ferrying people back at this point.
No training is required however you will need to be reasonably sure on your feet and mind your back while pulling out the pines (they are around 40cm tall on average). The land is relatively steep, there is some debris left from the pine harvest but not huge obstacles and vegetation is coming through.
We will be pulling small pines out by hand so bring gloves, sturdy footwear, weather protection, water to stay hydrated and a snack for morning tea…along with any personal medication you may need (allergies etc). We will have some gloves to borrow and a general first aid kit will be on site.
There are no toilets on site but they are only 8 mins away in Matapouri and we can do a loo run if needed half way through. We will be carpooling/ferrying with a 4wd from Matapouri as the roads are steep gravel windy roads. Let us know if you have your own gnarly transport to get there, parking and turning isnt a problem!
Contact Wendy on 022 526 1972 to RSVP, we need at least 10 people for the event to go ahead and would love 50!
