Mangatainoka Plants & Pints Project
To celebrate Arbour Day 2017 and encourage those exploring SH2 by motorhome/caravan to travel sustainably, the Tui Brewery will gift a native tree to plant to visitors staying at the Mangatainoka Reserve.
Nick Rogers from the Tui Brewery, says from Arbour Day on June 5th, they will give a free native plant to people choosing to stay at the Mangatainoka Reserve, just across the road from the brewery. Nick says the reserve, which caters for self-contained campervans, is located on the banks of the Mangatainoka River – the main water source for the brewery to use in making its beers. He says the initiative is designed to encourage visitors to the small North Island township (population 200) to leave the environment in better shape than they found it and to enjoy a strong connection with the land.
