Planting Schedule

Following on the success of our earlier planting events, we are pleased to be able to let you know that our next two planting events have been confirmed:


  1. Planting event at Ivey Bay

When? Saturday 16 September 2023. This event will be held in conjunction with Paremata Kindergarten.

What time?: 2 pm. 

Where? Ivey Bay. Limited parking is available at the Ivey Bay public parking area.  Please use the underpass to get across SH58. The meeting point will be on the lawns at the entry to the Paremata Kindergarten. Refreshments will be provided.

  1. Planting event at Browns Bay

When? Saturday 30 September 2023. 

What time?: 2 pm. 

Where? Browns Bay. Limited parking is available at the Browns Bay public parking area. The meeting point will be on the lawns in front of the Browns Bay parking area. Refreshments will be provided.

What to bring: warm clothes, shoes that don’t mind getting wet (or gumboots if you have them), drinking water, sunblock and hat (or a rainproof jacket if the weather isn’t too promising).

We will be planting mainly sea rush at various points along the inlet edge.

Feel free to forward this invitation to friends and family.

If you are keen to help out at either of these events (or both!) – please confirm with a reply at: Guardians of Pāuatahanui Inlet including numbers in your group (so that we can ensure that we have enough plants and equipment) and contact details – in case the event has to be postponed due to unfavourable weather. 

We would like to acknowledge DoC’s community grant that has made this possible, funding from GWRC, as well as Porirua City Council for the invaluable logistic support.
