The first plantings of the 'Rotary 100 Forests of Peace and Remembrance' project are being done.  This is a New Zealand-wide project to celebrate the centenary of Rotary commencing in NZ and Australia.
 
After Plimmerton Rotary club gained tentative approval from the Rotary 100 organisers, MPI and PCC for a planting area for Taupo Swamp the Plimmerton and Porirua Rotary Clubs are now planting the first 1000 trees/plants over three Saturdays in October.
 
These are the first of 10,000 wetland trees/plants to be planted around part of Plimmerton Domain that PCC will retire from sports field usage. PCC has recently completed building a dog exercising area on this sports field. The full article outlining the initial project development is here.
