The Halo Project

The Halo Project- Source to Sea
Practical – outdoors | 2-60 people | Potato Point Pūrākaunui

The Halo Project, Source to Sea team, invites the community to help restore the environment. Its mission is to inspire and work with communities to enhance, protect and connect with the landscape. Last year, with the help of volunteers, they planted 32,000 native seedlings on a 9 hectare reserve. They now aim to in-fill 7000 plants this planting season.

As part of the native habitat restoration project at Potato Point, Halo Project are offering volunteering opportunities for local businesses and their staff to plant native seedlings and install plant protectors to help the environment thrive.

They have a variety of tasks available at their planting days including:

  • Digging
  • Planting
    (Involves: bending, kneeling, crouching, cutting, clasping, turfing, pivoting, hammering, walking on uneven surfaces - spades, gardening gloves and mallets are also available)
  • Folding cardboard guards

The benefits for staff include:

  • Contributing to the local environment
  • Keeping fit
  • Enjoying an outdoor field work experience
  • Building relationships within the team

Past volunteers have gained memorable experiences and connections with the landscape and those they work alongside, while helping the environment to thrive.
