Planting our Apple Tree / Āporo Rākau

On a beautiful September Forest day we were able to finally plant our very own āporo rākau at the community orchard Sheppards Bush Reserve. This was very timely as it coincided with conservation week. After planting our tree we picked up litter found on our pathway throughout the bush. It was sad to see just how much litter there was. Together we are learning to be kaitiake of the community space.

We are already looking forward to the time when we can sit under our tree to eat the delicious apples it will produce in the future.

Ko te whenua the waiu mo nga uri whakatipu – The land will provide sustenance for future generations.
