Asking for support

We are thinking about ways we can fundraise to buy plants for the Washdyke Lagoon. We also need help to landscape the lagoon.

Do you have any ideas for what we could do? Please share them.

Planting Trip

In the Washdyke Lagoon Community Whanau Group, we are contributing to the sustainability of our local environment.

Check out some of the photos from our planting trip.

We wrote a letter asking people to help us with the lagoon project, we brainstormed a list of people to send a letter to asking for help:

- Hirequip
- ECan
- Fulton Hogan
- Smithfields
- Alpine Energy
- McCains
- Byproducts
- Mitre Ten
- DB
- Ashbury Mowers
- Lions
- Rotary
- SC Mountain Bike Club
- Otipua Wetlands Trust
- Nurseries around Timaru
- Hilary Iles at Enviroschools

We are planning a trip to the lagoon in Week 9. Shane and Clint rang Opuha Nurseries to order some plants, we organised the time for the trip and wrote a notice to let parents know.

March 6th

Today we brainstormed some ideas for what we would like to see at the Washdyke Lagoon. We then talked about what we need help with. We started to write letters asking for help with planning at the lagoon.
