I set up this group because I wanted to create the opportunity for members of the Meetup community to more easily contribute to the work of existing Wellington community groups that rely on volunteers to achieve their aims, and could benefit from the energy and enthusiasm of the Meetup movement. I also wanted to grow a community that could make a difference by helping each other to take on some of our own issues and ideas that we care about, while at the same time being able to meet great people and have lots of fun along the way!
I'm a keen tramper, organic gardener and landscape photographer, so environmental issues are very important to me. I'd also like to help create a fairer society and help others that are less fortunate or are going through tough times.
