Introducing Shane and sunflowers in Wellington’s CBD

Meet Shane.


He is a new friend to our project, and contacted us to volunteer for Common Unity Project‘s Big Dig Day 2013. If you are a Wellingtonian, chances are you have passed by or enjoyed Shane’s work in the CBD. Because Shane is a city gardener, he’s a bit of an unsung hero, as he’s charged with creating the beautiful plantings in the inner city. His contribution has meant that the inner city is larger spray-free, as Shane has cleaned up the soils by using organic methods. He is also responsible for introducing fruit trees shortly to the Guznee St precinct, in the Glover Park area… right by our friends at Radio Active FM.

Our little farmers will soon be joining Shane’s work and will plant hundreds of sunflowers, and other plants for pollinating insects, throughout Wellington City. This is part of our Project Sunshine programme – our children are beautifying our communities and are supporting our insects.

Thank you Shane for all you do. If you see him out there people, give him a shout!
