What do you think of the Hundertwasser Art Centre's rooftop park?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangārei Leader

The southern hemisphere's largest afforested roof is starting to take shape in Northland. The first of 150 trees were lifted onto Whangārei’s Hundertwasser Art Centre on Tuesday, helping to create a rooftop park with 4000 plants. The building is the last architectural project that the famous Austrian artist Friederich Hundertwasser​ was involved with before his death in 2000. What do you think of the rooftop park?

Using our years of experience we match like-minded GrandFriends, extending their support networks, so they can enjoy the special moments, share the load - all the while combating loneliness.

You are welcome to apply as an individual - or if you wish to apply with your partner (husband/wife/significant other) as something that you can volunteer with together - that is also very much welcome and encouraged.

Let's celebrate Earth Day, too

Oliver Neighbourly Lead from One Tree Point

Yes, I know - it doesn't have the high status and recognition of ANZAC Day or Waitangi Day with their related events, which get a lot of attention and press coverage, nor does it come with the commercial frenzy of Christmas or Easter, and it isn't even a public holiday. But Earth Day (22-Apr) is no less worth celebrating, particularly this year, with some high profile climate action events happening internationally at the highest level as well as in our very own backyard.
Nowadays I prefer to direct my energy and support towards action that provides hope and pathways for a fairer, safer and healthier future. Here's to Earth Day and our one and only planet.
