 Doing our bit for the environment

Members of our friendly team at Napier Health have joined together to help propagate and grow plants from seeds that can be planted along rivers, estuaries and river mouths, in an effort to help improve the health of our waterways. 

This initiative was the brainwave of Health Protection Officer Cameron Ormsby, who has a passion for conservation. 

The group is known as the ‘Federation for the Appreciation of Riparian Treescapes’ who meet up occasionally during lunch breaks to fill pots of soil and plant seedlings which are housed in a enclosed garden area by the café at the centre.
