ACE is a community-led project that will see positive action towards improving the environment of the Aparima catchment through on-ground action. The project is supported by DairyNZ, Beef and Lamb NZ and Environment Southland.
The ACE project has been initiated by the combined catchment groups of the Aparima Freshwater Management Unit (including the Waimatuku and Orepuki catchments) to build and support the resilience of the Aparima community and environment.
Through ACE, farmers have the opportunity to get a Farm Environment Management Plan developed for your farm to identify ways to improve the overall health of our food production systems and, together, the wider catchment.
We are only one generation of what has been a prosperous Aparima community - this is our opportunity to shape its future.
