Council’s Healthy Streams Programme is partnering with New Zealand Landcare Trust to hold workshops on sustainable land management practices.

We will be working with landowners to develop land environment plans for their properties, focusing on the specific issues each landowner faces including water quality, water storage, fire resilience and erosion control

The workshops are partially funded by the Ministry for Primary Industries Hill Country Erosion Fund. The project will also support the provision of 30,000 trees of the right kind, in the right place and for the right purpose.

The first of these workshops will be held on March 14 at the Wakapuaka Memorial Hall from 5.30 pm. You will need to register in order to attend and can do so by contacting or

A further workshop is also planned for April – follow Council’s facebook page for the latest updates.
