Releasing work party at the end of Koru and Magic Carpet.
After another successful planting season, we’ve a little bit of work to do to ensure the seedlings survive their first few months in the ground. We call it 'releasing', and it's usually just pulling back grass from around the seedlings to make sure they don't get swamped.
We provide gloves and a snack - you provide some muscle. It usually takes about an hour (a bit longer if there's a walk into the planting site).
Don't forget: once you've done three work parties this year, you get a pair of top notch Makara Peak riding gloves.
