150 Kauri Trees to Celebrate Thames 150 Years.
“What better way to mark the occasion than by planting these magnificent trees in the Kauaeranga Valley where they belong “says organiser Deborah MacDonald Brown, who has teamed up with Kauri 2000 and the Department of Conservation. “150 years ago we felled these trees to make our town; now is a great time to replace them”.
It is easy to take part. All you have to do is log onto the Kauri 2000 website and click on ‘donate now’ to purchase your seedling (which will be planted on your behalf). Make sure you type in Thames 150 so you can be part of this commemorative celebration.
Each seedling costs $20.
With the purchase of a tree, you will receive a certificate in the name of someone you wish to celebrate. “People are buying trees as presents for their grandchildren or to remember loved ones. This is what will make this planting so special.”
Deborah will be at the Thames Saturday Market on March 17 2018. Contact: 0272288011.
