Hi, my name is Andrew Lennox and I took on the coordinators role in March. Since then, a lot of work has been going into planning some great events coming up and I was out and about in the community meeting lots of you and discussing where the Pokaiwhenua Catchment Group (PCG) could further your environment goals.
We helped several farmers to get some funding from SWEI for riparian plantings on the Ngutawera, Wairaka and Pokaiwhenua streams.
We were successful in applying to WRA for funding for a project at the Duxfield reserve where we are planting 4500 plants on the 18th of May so come on down and join in the fun from 9:30am there will be a sausage sizzle to keep you going.
In the upcoming months we will be applying to different groups for funding for projects so if your interested in being part of the application get in touch through firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have some upcoming events such as looking at constructed wetlands at The Baldwins property in conjunction with DNZ on the 25th of May. This will be a great opportunity to see what can be done at a farm scale and how it works.
