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


We help farmers care for their land and ensure good environmental practice. Such as stock exclusion from waterways, planting the right trees in the right places, and improving catchment water quality and biodiversity.
