Getting Involved: Genesis Energy And Telecom Get Stuck In At Planting Day

May 15, 2014

Planting started on Friday, 9th May, at Waikato RiverCare’s Hakarimata A Extension project, near Ngaruawahia. Close to 1500 native plants were planted by a team of 22 volunteers from Genesis Energy and Telecom.


Through thunderstorms and rain the hardy bunch of helpers steadily worked their way down the site, planting around two thirds of the site’s river edge. The work done by the group of volunteers was a showcase of social and environmental  responsibility, and has made a great contribution towards getting more than 6000 plants into the ground at this location.
The planting days have been funded by grants from Trust Waikato and WEL Energy Trust.


The project site, which is funded by the Waikato Catchment Ecological Enhancement Trust (WCEET), will be further planted by school groups from Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Bernard Fergusson and Glen Massey schools over the next two weeks.
