20 attend second Domain planting

Posted by SC Comments Off on 20 attend second Domain planting

Twenty locals attended on Saturday 30 May to the second Domain riparian planting. Oioi and knobby club rush were among the plants that went in on the banks of the Piha Stream. About 800 plants went in, bringing to over 2000 the plantings.  The project is an effort to improve the stability of the stream banks and water quality in the Piha Stream. Fortunately, the sun shone so it was a pleasant task and volunteers ended the session with Leek and potato soup from Fiona and a sausage sizzle.

The next two plantings will be in the swales by the Domain gate, the first of these on 13 June.
