Friends of Maungawhau volunteers help with weeding, planting and nursery work. We usually work on the first Saturday of the month, meeting at 9:30 am at the end of Batger Road off Mt Eden Road. Tasks and locations depend on the priorities at the time. Gloves and tools are provided.

New volunteers are very welcome. If you are interested in taking part in our activities, please contact

Our Saturday sessions are advertised on our Facebook page and on the Urban Ark events page.
