Lincoln Envirotown Trust

Taking responsibility for a sustainable future.

   OMahoe April 2012ur Vision:

   
     To restore Mahoe Reserve to a healthy indigenous
     ecosystem, highly valued by the community

 

 

 

 

 

The project was started in 2002 by year 9 students at Lincoln High School. In 2003, planting began and since then, dedicated community members, including schools, kindergartens and other local groups have planted more than 7000 native trees, shrubs and grasses. The Reserve is managed by the Mahoe Committee which has members from the local community, the High School, Lincoln University and is overseen by the Lincoln Envirotown Trust (LET). The committee administers the funding provided by the Selwyn District Council which goes towards the upkeep of the Reserve, raises money for plants, and organises monthly working bees for planting, weeding and mulching. We have Lincoln University and Landcare Research ecologists as advisors. Since 2008 Denis Blomquist has been the coordinator for the reserve. He puts in many voluntary hours and coordinates the monthly working bees (held on the 1st Sunday of the month at 2.00pm).

We have many volunteers from the local community as well as Lincoln University and Lincoln High school students. We also have a number of volunteers who come from overseas and help us while they are in NZ.
