Amazing to learn so much about the different types of weed and the great conservation work the team over at Waiheke are so passionate about. We enjoyed the work out in nature and it felt really good to give back to the environment.
We enjoyed getting outside and being able to work together as a team, when we are so use to being in an office all day. We found it really interesting learning about planting and the different aspects around that.
We enjoyed being in a great environment, getting to know the other team members, the opportunity to spend time on Waiheke afterwards and a feeling of having contributed to restoring the environment.
