Why giv­ing back to the lo­cals is also good for busi­ness s

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Feature -

Com­mu­nity pro­jects have been a good op­por­tu­nity for the busi­ness, show­ing peo­ple how to get good re­sults. Pete has been in­volved with a project to re-es­tab­lish plant­ings along the old Motueka River r bed, pro­vides ad­vice to lo­cal schools on re-veg­e­ta­tion pro­jects, and do­nates trees and vouch­ers for fund-rais­ing events. He also has a ded­i­cated lo­cal plant­ing crew on-hand in win­ter, who work on a con­tract ba­sis. “They're fit, strong, keen young peo­ple who are not just do­ing this for a job but be­cause they love the New Zealand en­vi­ron­ment and want to help out with con­ser­va­tion and re-veg­e­ta­tion pro­jects. Many of them work in sum­mer as guides in the park and then come work for me in the win­ter. It's a win-win sit­u­a­tion for us all.”
