Berhampore Nursery Open Day

March 17, 2018, 10:00am - March 17, 2018, 2:00pm

Join us for a sneak peek of Berhampore Nursery. This is the only day of the year our nursery is open to the public. There will be tours, propagation advice and plenty of native plants for sale! (Payment by cash or EFTPOS). These plants are suitable for Wellington conditions, locally sourced and garden cultivars. Come along to learn about nature restoration, biodiversity and urban horticulture. There’ll be Gecko lizards, insects, birds and displays from community restoration groups and Berhampore School. Food and drinks will be available to purchase. There is no onsite parking so we encourage people to take public transport or park in surrounding streets and walk from there. Public access is from Emerson Street, through Morton and Stanley streets from Adelaide road. After exploring the nursery pop next door to the Berhampore Golf Club open day – there’ll be fun activities (including bowls and golf putting) from 11am. This event is part of Parks Week 2018. Parks Week is an annual celebration of the important role that our parks play in contributing to the health of our communities. A range of formal and informal events take place across Wellington and New Zealand during parks week – there’s something for everyone! #ParksWeek

Food for kererū 🤗 ... See MoreSee Less

It's primo kai time for kereru with miro fruiting abundantly right now! Large, oily miro fruit is a vital part of the kereru diet. Miro fruits take 12-18 months to mature. Ripe fruits are mainly found from November-April. Learn more about miro (Prumnopitys ferruginea) at NZPCN: Kereru tail feather found on the ground with fallen ripe and unripe miro fruit.

It's so nice to have Kereru visit! They swoop in and head straight for the bird bath, but only drink from it, never bathe in it 🙂
