As part of Wairakei Estate’s community outreach and sponsorship program, we hosted our first Propagation Planting Project in November last year, with the valued participation of Hilltop School and Liston Heights Retirement Village.
95% of plants from our 2015 project survived the potting and were successfully planted on the Estate earlier this year.
We are excited to say that we have had a great response from the schools of Taupo, in regards to our 2016 Propagation Planting Project. Five schools have signed up to participate in this year’s endeavour to fundraise for their school: Taupo, Tauhara, Waipahihi, Hilltop and Waipahihi Primary Schools.
Liston Heights Retirement Village will be returning, along with new participants: Wharerangi, St John Woods, Monte Vista and Summerset Village, to teach the schools how to take the plants from root trainers to pots.
Wairakei Estate is looking forward to working with everyone involved for another successful year.
