Sub Urban Co-working: Kathleen Wright

Sub Urban is a network of people who are passionate about the suburbs being a perfect place to create and develop innovation and successful businesses. A co-working space is due to be launched in Johnsonville on Tuesday 4 August. Kathleen Wright will be explaining about this community initiative that provides a co-working space for all in the community to meet, collaborate, connect and ‘get some seriously good work done’.

Tawa Valley Pathway Community Tree Planting

When: 9 am – midday Saturday 8th August 2015.

Where: besides the Tawa Valley pathway just south of Taylor Park – parking available at the Badminton centre carpark at Taylor Park south of Redwood railway station.

What: Please bring a spade if possible although it is not necessary for everyone to be able to dig holes – there is plenty of opportunity for lighter work also in logistics (moving the trees to planting holes) and the planting of trees. Please bring you own spade if possible, and garden quality gloves and suitable clothing and footwear for the weather.

Why: 500 trees have been supplied by Wellington City Council as part of their ongoing support for community group tree planting for beautification along the Tawa Valley Pathway.

Tawa Rotary is co-ordinating this community event. Contact: Richard Herbert.
