We’re on a mission to improve biodiversity, sequester carbon and allow for community participation in NPDC’s response to climate change by delivering indigenous revegetation to Council-owned reserves through tree planting.
Planting our Place is part of NPDC’ s 10-Year Plan, working with mana whenua to establish 34 hectares of urban forest across our District. Over the course of the next two decades, the objective is to bring back native birdsong and biodiversity to our urban environments, while simultaneously cultivating a greener and healthier future for generations to come.
NPDC’s Te Korowai o Tāne grants will fund not-for-profit and community groups to plant native species on their own properties. Each year Te Korowai o Tāne will have $30k to help groups with native planting. The fund is open to applications year round. It is open to community and not-for-profit groups including schools, sports clubs, kōhanga reo, kindergartens, early childhood and play centres and marae. Find out more here.
