We hold regular workdays where you can get involved in tree planting, weed control, nursery work and all sorts of other activities. Public volunteer days are held every alternate Sunday from January 8th throughout the year (except public holiday weekends) but do check our Volunteer Dates. This makes a great day out for groups, families, individuals either local or from overseas. You are all welcome !You get a day out of the city, enjoy fresh air and exercise, meet new people while doing something really worthwhile. Help us create a legacy for the future.
