Two for one

Located in the lower North Island in Manawatu-Wanganui resides a family working towards enhancing their sustainable practises while running a functioning farm.

The couple have a strategic goal to plant in each of their paddocks and want to use natives to do so. They envisage this will attract more native birds to the property, as strong numbers of Tui and Kereru already inhabit the area.

With intention to create a shelterbelt between the two paddocks, Junction and Kaituna, this will provide protection for their stock and coincidingly will reduce their carbon footprint. Through Trees That Count via a range of supporters Rebecca Harper has received 100 trees to contribute to her project.  

The photo above captures this stunning property the Harper Family owns. With a few more native trees on it, it will only become more breathtaking.
