Mid Oreti Native Seed Collecting and Pest Control Workshop - 7th May 2024

Mid Oreti Native Seed Collecting and Pest Control Workshop

Tuesday 7 May - 3pm - 5.30pm

The Mid Oreti Catchment Mini Forest Movement is growing native plants for landowners, schools, and community groups across Central Southland. This is a great time of year to collect native seeds from shrubs and trees.

Join the Mid Oreti Team for some seed collecting in Motu Ngahere (AB Lime’s native forest block), and enjoy a quick guided walk around this lovely forest, learning about the different pest control methods AB Lime use to protect it.

We will meet at the AB Lime Nursery at 3 pm, and then head up to the Bush Block at 3.15pm. Once we have gathered some seed and walked the loop track, we will head back down to the nursery and process and plant up the seeds.

You are welcome to bring you own containers (ice cream ones are great) and pick them up for your plantings at home, or sow some for the Mid Oreti Mini Forest Movement Project.

Sturdy footwear is required, and it would be great if you have a 4WD that you could bring along to help with transport. Don’t worry if you don’t as there will be some on site already to help the group get up the hill to Motu Ngahere.

Any questions call Ainsley - 020 4113 2212
