* This application for 2022 assistance is now closed. You can still fill in the form and I will contact you next year to confirm you are still interested in receiving assistance before adding it to next years applications. There is a need to carry out the application process early to ensure nurseries have time to fulfil our orders with high quality eco-sourced plants and all requested species.
REGISTER AN EXISTING GREEN DOT
We are in the process of setting criteria for self planted stepping stones to be added to the Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway.
Once this is complete landowners will be able to register their restoration site as a Greendot Stepping stone. We will have signage available to purchase so your project can be recognised as part of the Greenway linking the mountains to the sea.
There are dozens of sites already out there and with your help we can start to make the physical and community connections as we join the plants and people across the plains.
You never know you might be right next to another Green Dot on your road…
