We've entered into a share-farming agreement with ManukaLife Pty Ltd to revegetate several areas of Water Corporation owned land at Walpole.
We are revegetating with tea tree shrubs which also have potential for future Manuka honey production.
These sites were purchased over the past decade, some with the specific long-term aim of revegetating to protect water quality, as they are contained within Public Drinking Water Source Areas (PDWSA).
Through this project, we aim to
- Protect biodiversity by recovering land from intensive grazing
- Provide a haven for wildlife and
- Ensure Walpole is recognised for the establishment of another clean and green industry
