Tree Planting with the Family Farm

James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor Tree Planting with the Family Farm

The management team from the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor have planted over 270 trees in support of regenerative agriculture in New Zealand.

With help from The Family Farm, nine management staff from the hotel journeyed to Mangarara Station in Hawkes Bay and took part in planting native trees on the farmland. Mangarara Station has been a sheep farm for more than 150 years. Through sponsorship from the Air New Zealand Environment Trust, Mangarara Station has undertaken an extensive programme of regenerative planting to help restore the land. The first planting of eco-sourced tree stock took place in 2008 and has now become an annual event. These plantings form the conservation estate which has been created by the owners of Mangarara as a gift to the nation. Mangarara Station was the first project to be supported by the Air New Zealand Environment Trust.

Our New Zealand Grand Chancellor Hotels have partnered with the Air New Zealand Environment Trust to ensure that New Zealand’s natural environment is protected for future generations. The opportunity to take a more hands-on approach to helping the environment was a great learning experience.

Steve Martin, General Manager, comments “it was a very interesting project. We learned a great deal about sustainable farming and admire the work done by the Family Farm. We are proud to support the Air New Zealand Environment Trust and the projects that they sponsor”.
