Mitre 10 helping out in spades

The amazing team from the Mitre 10 Support Centre in Albany spent five hours working on the Te Hōnonga a Iwi restoration site at Rosedale Park earlier this month, then donated 100 spades to the project!

Project co-ordinator Nicky Shave says the Mitre 10 group worked hard rebuilding bioreactors, shifting pallet platforms to the 2024 planting site, sowing native tree seeds, building stairs and clearing land.

The gift of 100 spades was also very welcome.

“All our volunteer groups will be able to put the spades to good use at the restoration and we can share them with other community restoration projects within the Upper Waitematā Ecology Network,” Nicky says.

The Te Hōnonga a Iwi project is a business-led restoration and support from local organisations is key to its success.

“We need businesses to provide resources and funding and collaborate with iwi, community groups and landowners to do this important mahi which will help stop the health of our landscapes, waterways and seas declining further,” Nicky says.

Investing in restoration and regenerative projects is a way SMEs can contribute to mitigating climate change.

“If all SMEs acted to decarbonise and regenerate, we would be able to reverse global warming.”
