New Zealand - Interfaith Tree Planting Day
In celebration of the coming of Spring, and to commemorate Islam Awareness Week (27 August to 1 September 2012), the Waikato Interfaith Council will undertake an Interfaith Tree Planting.
In celebration of the coming of Spring, and to commemorate Islam Awareness Week (27 August to 1 September 2012), the Waikato Interfaith Council would like to invite you and your community to come and join us on the first day of Spring to do our bit for the environment. This event supports the Waikato Muslim Association in celebrating Islam Awareness Week, and its theme this year: "the environment: our rights and responsibilities".
We'll be doing a wetland planting this day (due to the time of year), at the Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park, New Zealand's largest inland restoration project, so bring your gumboots, a planting spade, a sun hat, and a smile!
Get your community involved and come and support multicultural and interfaith activities in the Waikato, and the the Hamilton City Council's Waiwhakareke Reserve with its long-term vision of wetland restoration. For more information on Waiwhakareke and its award-winning natural heritage park, please visit http://www.waiwhakareke.co.nz for an overview of the project.
Interfaith Tree Planting
We're inviting ethnic and faith community leaders in the Waikato to get their communities on board and come and join us for an hour or two, plant some trees and join us for a BBQ (sponsored by the Waikato Muslim Association) afterwards. Show your community spirit! We'd like to get together members from all of Waikato's various ethnic and faith ~ belief communities to come and join us for some real down to earth fun.
Date and Time: Saturday 1 September 2012, 2:00-4:00pm
Location: Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park (across from the Hamilton Zoo, Brymer Road).
What to bring: gumboots, a spade for planting, and a sun hat!
RAIN OR SHINE!
Please meet at 2pm sharp in the car park across from the main entrance to the Hamilton Zoo. Follow the signs that say "Community Event" to point you in the right direction. We'll be having an orientation and safety briefing beginning at 2pm at the far end of the car park. From there we'll walk down to the planting site and get started. Plan on spending close to an hour planting, followed by a BBQ back at the car park.
If you don't have a spade, we'll have a few extras on hand, so don't let that deter you from joining us! Bring gumboots, kids and a spade!
