Nursery gets a hand from Malcam Trust
Friday 18th December, 2009The YEPT Nursery was lucky enough to have youths from the Dunedin Malcam Trust Conservation Corps (assisted by their supervisor, Garth Hassall) build two additional stand-out boxes. The plants are placed on these boxes several weeks before they are to go out to the habitats to 'harden off' (decreased watering) so that they adjust to similar environmental conditions once planted.
This Cons Corp group of young men and women has been visiting the nursery on alternate Tuesdays to also learn about propagation, extending pipes for our irrigation, and digging drainage ditches.
Many thanks from the nursery staff for such willing and helpful workers.
