Upstream Strip of Reserve
Our organisation has morphed into two teams with the Landscapers doing the heavy work like clearing land and putting up fences and the Parks team sorting out the mess and planting the trees in a pattern that will be attractive when they mature in twenty years time.
The latest addition was to fence the piece of mown land that looked like a private garden and plant it so that walkers feel confident with going over it. With it fenced, we then planted six beautiful big trees and surrounded them with flax and cabbage trees.
The long, upstream strip was thick with taiwan cherry and wild ginger and this has now been cleared and planted. It still need some work but there are a lot of big trees in the ground and it looks as though someone care for it.
There are two streams in this reserve and it is rumored that they were once Maori gardens, which is credible, as the soil is good and there are clumps of Taro on the stream edge. We are trying to recruit some schools to adopt the streams as a project and replant them with wetland plants and also the typical plants that Maori would have had for basic food and medicinal herbs.

Cool! You can even have your own garden irrigation through this. That would be a cool way to have your mini paradise at home.
