Native Planting Area Carers

Haehaeata Heritage Trust work towards improving the native biodiversity in the Clyde region by growing and planting native species.

They need someone to water an area of native plants that need a bit of extra care. Korimako corner (once was an old railway yard) is an experimental dryland native planting and needs a bit of an extra hand -water, over the hot dry months as it is not quite ready to fend for itself yet. It is situated at the corner of SH8 and Springvale road.

What the role involves:
Connecting a hose to in-ground tap and taking it to a zone and watering each individual plant. There is flexibility with this role as it can be done at any time but as there are multiple carers and zones and only one hose, a little bit of communication is needed within the group.


  • Everything is on site but if you feel like a spot of weeding as well bring some gloves.
  • You must be fit enough to drag a hose around and have patience.
  • Training (or familiarisation) will be given.
  • You will need your own transport to get to the location.

Time commitment

From the drier months of October/November through to potentially April. Depends on how wet the season has been. Each zone takes around 30 - 45mins. You can select one zone or multiple. Once a week should do it.
