Healthy waterways

Greater Wellington is helping farmers in their efforts to improve their freshwater systems and biodiversity, which helps profitability and their impact on climate change.

Healthy waterways

Soil conservation

We help farmers deliver on their Farm Environment Plans, and also help them reduce soil erosion and flooding by stabilising hillsides with poplars and willows.

 Soil conservation


This year alone we helped fund the installation of 46km of new fencing and riparian planting in 126 acres hectares of stream-side land.
