Why enhance ground cover?
Generating ground cover connects us to place & activity as kaitiaki. Being caretakers of the land is mutually nourishing. Growing certain ground cover plants can support our cultural identity.
Making beneficial habitat for frogs, skinks, invertebrates & birds can be made by piling rocks, old logs & punga, or by digging a small pool of water.
Natural ground cover enhances our wellbeing from its beauty, from the physical activity of maintaining it, & from the emotional benefits of working outside.
