Mānuka planting scheme takes young Northland workers

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 5 March 2019

Twenty young Northland men start work this week in the hills behind Moerewa - replacing what was once pine forest, with manuka. They're the first intake of Nga Mahuri o Ngati Hine - the saplings of Ngati Hine - a two-year training programme funded by the government's Billion Trees scheme. Lois Williams went to the launch at Otiria marae.
