Fruit tree planting on Maungawhau

A joint project between the Friends of Maungawhau and the Mount Eden Village People.

What a great turnout for our fruit tree planting day on Mangawhau this Saturday. A rainy day is apparently the best day to plant trees, so this was definitely the perfect day to dig in!

Thank you to everyone involved for taking action in transforming our community into a more sustainable place. This was a team effort to bring free and healthy food into to Mount Eden that will be a nice treat on your walk up Maungawhau.

We would like to see more fruit trees planted in streets and local parks and next to playgrounds to support families to save money on their grocery bill and to educate children on where fruit comes from.

We now have 3 feijoa, 3 lemon, 2 grapefruit and 2 peach trees on our mountain. We also would like to thank Councillor Glenda Fryer from our local community board, who joined us to plant a fruit tree and supports our vision of having these community trees as part of Mount Eden.

We would like to hear what you think about having community fruit trees in our city. Please go to:  FB: Fruit trees for Auckland or suggest a site on: http://www.fruittrees.org.nz
