Te Arai BioFarma continues environmental restoration
For many years the Gravatt family has taken to the restoration of native forest at the headwater of the Waitapu Stream. The stream is the eastern most tributary of the Kaipara Harbour and the area is adjacent to a Department of Conservation (DOC) reserve.
Previously grassed, unloved farmland the gullys are now home to a strongly regenerating native forest and a diverse ecological environment. Over 35,000 native seedlings have been planted to date.
In 2016 Te Arai BioFarma have taken on the ambitious project of planting an additional acre of land, with a further acre planned for 2o17. Te Arai is the spiritual home of our New Zealand company and protecting it is both important and satisfying for our team.
