Yesterday there was plenty of activity at the top end of the Te Waihou Walkway as adults and students undertook bank planting.
The South Waikato District Council and Farm Source were assisting this operation that carried on despite persistent rain.
Students from Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Te Hiringa as well as other schools were helping with the planting.
Those present were addressed by Takarihi Temarama before planting began and the SWDC outlined safety procedures for the day.
Small groups at a time were then pulled to the other side in a small craft – (see the short video).
After the planting, those helping enjoyed a BBQ and snacks.
