This year we have been successful in obtaining funding from three sources.
1/ Trust Waikato supported us again with $350 for potting mix. This enables us to grow native trees and shrub at considerably less than if we had to purchase them. This is the second year we have had this important funding.
2/ We applied for and were successful in obtaining $2,000 from the HCC Envirofund to purchase materials to complete the track and board walk from Sexton Road to the foot bridge. This is an important infrastructure project and, when complete, will give us easy access to the length of the restoration area.
3/ HCC made available to us about 100 old farm posts of miscellaneous types to sell on Trademe for funding. We were successful in netting $452 in the sale. This has been set aside for plant purchasing.
