Environmentally-friendly farming

Every year Environment Southland honours those in the community working to better their environment. 

Local farmers Graeme and Jan Appleby have been recognised for their mission to transform a peat bog into a usable block of land.

After tackling 4-metre high gorse, it’s now been granted a protection covenant and is home to rare birds and plants. 

Graeme tells us about the restoration.
