Harania and Lenore foreshore reserves
Otara Park and Otara Creek reserve
The volunteer event involved 10 busloads of school kids a day, accompanied by some teachers and parents, systematically de-littering designated areas along the 12km stretch of Puhinui stream, Harania and Lenore foreshore reserves, Otara Park and Otara Creek reserve. One of the busloads was also diverted to assist in a ‘working bee’ at a Food Hub and Community Garden initiative that has been established as a mini social enterprise by Healthy Families, a business unit of The Southern Initiative, operated in conjunction with Auckland Council.
