On 4 August 2018, our team spent the day planting native trees on Quail Island / Ōtamahua. The trust looking after the island has been at it for 20 years and the progress is stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed lending a few hands and adding to the collective effort.
It's partly having a good time and enjoying each other's company. But the wider motivation is in giving back to the community that we are all part of. We like our environment to be clean, green, and inspiring. The Quail Island Ecological Restoration Trust is doing great work and their cause is worthy of support.
The trust has recently been gifted tree guards by local company Terralana. They were somewhat challenging to put together but Julie figured out a good system. For good measure, we produced a 'how-to' video.
