SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Tuesday October 3 2017 7 News THEN AND NOW: A team of volunteers helped Early Valley Rd residents Ken and Denise McKenzie replant their property, which was badly burnt in the Port Hills fires. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​ Volunteers replant after fire damage MORE THAN 60 people pitched in on Saturday to help a couple whose property was devastated in the Port Hills fires. They volunteered their time to plant about 1000 native seedlings on Ken and Denise McKenzie’s Early Valley Rd farm. The house was saved during the fires by helicopters dousing it with monsoon buckets, but the land was left badly damaged. The couple’s plantings of native trees, some which were 25 years old, were burnt in the fires. Mr McKenzie said he was left touched by the work volunteers had put in. He and his wife never would have achieved what the volunteers did in a morning, he said. “It was amazing,” he said. The event was organised by Te Ara Kākāriki Greenway Canterbury Trust coordinator Elizabeth Guthrey. About 40 volunteers were registered with the trust while another 20 associated with the farm helped on the day. Mr McKenzie described it as a wave of planting that moved across the hill. The couple had planned to divide their farm before the fires, with two thirds for grazing and one third native habitat. When Mrs McKenzie’s first plantings matured enough to produce seed, she had collected and potted the seed to plant in other parts of their farm. Many of the plants she had sprouted herself burned to the ground. The trust has now written a restoration plan for the Mc- Kenzie’s property and plans to continue helping them by contributing more volunteers and funds in the future. The trust is planning to plant again at the farm in August next year.
