April 24 2019 – Graedon Parker
This year, Organic Mechanic raised $865.00 for our whānau from Friends of Okura Bush contributing directly as part of over $35K raised at the Okura Forest Festival to protect one of the last remnant coastal forests and New Zealand’s largest estuary marine reserve.
For OM, conservation is a massive deal for us, as without our ecology, there can be absolutely no economy.
#OkuraForest is one of the last remaining native coastal forests north of Auckland until the hills of Whangarei - an ancient snapshot into the rich biodiversity of plant & wildlife species which call Aotearoa home - and it is up to our generation to protect it.
Join us and NZ renowned Artist/Activist Geoff Reid NZ on Sunday 5th May as we come together to learn more about restoring and revegetating the native forest/marine ecosystems by destroying some serious invasive plants that are threatening the last of the existing stands of indigenous forests here in Aotearoa.
10am til noon. Bring a plate for shared lunch afterwards. (optional)
1 Duck Creek, Stillwater.
