Green fingers needed at Silverstream Reserve

Wednesday, May 16, 2018   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: volunteers, event, environmental health

Waimakariri District Council media release: 16th May 2018

Green fingers, get out your gloves. There will be ‘action’ aplenty at the Silverstream Reserve on Sunday 3rd June during the Silverstream Reserve Community’s Great Arbor Day plant.

The community has been given 400 trees from ‘Trees that Count’, a national tree planting initiative. 200 of these will be planted on Arbor Day, with the other 200 to be bedded in during spring.

Date and Time: Sunday 3rd June 2018, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Location: Silverstream Reserve (126 South Eyre Road, Clarkville).

Come join us to further the development of this special place. Bring your favourite planting tool, sturdy shoes and gloves if you wear them.

The big Arbor Day planting is the first undertaken by the community in the Reserve, and has been organised following community input from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Baha'i Rangiora, Student Volunteer Army, Waimakariri Scouts (Keas) and the BNZ Closed for Good.

Clarkville School has also had a big hand in the operation through its Enviroschool programme, so much so that the entire roll of students will be involved on the day.

The plantings are happening as part of the Million Metres Initiative.

The Silverstream Advisory Committee makes the decisions about the direction the Reserve is developing, with volunteers from the community working in the Reserve twice a week to ensure the plants will survive and thrive once they are bedded in.

Contact the Silverstream Volunteers for more information (silverstream.volunteers[at]
