Yealands Wines Marlborough Sustainability Initiative

The Yealands Wines Marlborough Sustainability Initiative will make available $100,000 every year for local environmental projects. Projects can apply for individual grants of up to $10,000 per year. The Initiative specifically supports not-for-profit community efforts to improve freshwater quality, the preservation of sensitive natural areas, and/or biodiversity in the Marlborough district.  So much good work is already being done throughout Marlborough, and this fund has been established to help community groups do even more.
