Members of the Wild Dunedin committee (clockwise from front left) Hoani Langsbury, Suzanne Middleton, Neil Harraway, Nicki Tonkin, Rachel Cooper, Phil Bishop, Taylor Davies-Colley, Kerry Buchan, Katrina Thompson, Jeannie Hayden and Norcombe Barker become one with the greenery by holding a meeting at Ribbonwood Nurseries in Bradford yesterday.

It has become tradition for the festival committee to connect with nature in its last meeting of the year.

Last year the committee pulled a table into the Water of Leith and the year before it sat on top of a hill near Larnach Castle, overlooking Otago Peninsula.

Festival co-ordinator Jeannie Hayden said members were still able to get work done, despite the conditions.

"It’s actually very tranquil being surrounded by green."

Next year’s New Zealand Festival of Nature runs from April 17 to 23.

The meeting location fitted with the next festival’s "re-wilding" theme, she said.

"To re-wild is to create more habitat and safer places for our wildlife."
