Friends of the Otaki River - Estuary Viewing Platform
Inclement weather didn't deter Friends of the Otaki River (including Te Roto residents) from attending the official opening of the Otaki River estuary veiwing platform.
The viewing platform, accessed from Kapiti Lane, offers visitors views over the estuary and out to Kapiti Island.
It is the latest achievement for the local community group - (FOTOR) - and over 400 native plants were planted around the platform on the day. The plants were grown in FOTOR's own nursery and this is where we donated most of the native seedlings from our Greenest Street Seedling Project.
It is thoroughly satisfying to contribute to a community initiative such as this and it was interesting to talk to a lot of people about the Greenest Street initiative, including Raewyn who gave me some expert advice on how to save my over ripe crabapple crop - more on that in my next blog!
