We took part in our own planting day earlier this year to create the Kowhai Spacewalk, along side a track out on the Wairakei Drive road, and had so much fun! Now it's your turn to get involved!
We’re gearing up for Paint the Town Green running 31 May - 4 June! Celebrating the great work Greening Taupō & Kids Greening Taupō do. They are raising money with a bunch of activities including a community planting day on Friday 4 June, which will see over 4000 trees go in between the AC Baths & Golf Course and you could be part of this!!
Join them between 9.30am - 1.00pm to plant some trees and participate in the fun activities! Volcanic Coffee will be there with $1 from each hot drink going to Greening Taupo, free soup thanks to The Bistro and a BBQ by Trev Terry Marine Taupo. DJ Alexi will be there playing music and lots of community groups will have activities for the kids. And of course, there will be heaps of trees to plant thanks to Trees That Count.
Don't worry if you can't make it on the day - businesses, schools and ECE centres are encouraged to have a ‘Dress up in Green’ day and to collect gold coin donations - to focus on environmental/conservation activities for the day.
All money raised during the week will go towards allowing Greening Taupō and Kids Greening Taupō to continue with the great work that they do! Together they have planted over 136,000 trees in Taupō so far, with many more planting days planned for 2021.
Visit Spacecraft during the week and add a $3 Plant A Tree donation onto your purchase to help the cause! It's that easy!
