Hands to the tools

​Te Kakano is a Trust which operates a Wanaka community based native plant nursery. It specialises in propagating plants originating from our local Upper Clutha region.

The plants raised are then used for native habitat restoration around the region. In this the Trust works with local community groups, schools, organisations and businesses in a hands on approach.

This approach can be tough on tools.

This month supporters of the MenShed operating from the Wanaka Community Workshop have repaired and replaced the handles of those tools which could not stand the pace.

Again its a cooperative effort. Wanaka Rotary are funding needed parts while supporters of the MenShed are doing the assembly and fitting. Together, working with Te Kakano, making a difference in our community.
