Field Trip – June’s place
Saturday, 28 March, 10am
Sainsbury Road, Pirongia
Hilly, 26 ha, 4 wheel drives good. Lots of interesting trees, planted years ago.
There are decades-old chestnut groves. It is up the slopes of Mt Priongia with awesome views of Waikato. There are patches of native bush too. Trees have been planted with tagasastes around each tree to help with wind protection and nitrogen supply.
NOTE: Need to bring chairs and mugs. No shelter if wet; Bring coats.
We might go off and visit Nick’s walnut orchard afterwards and do some volunteer work – Editor.
