Plant for Good has been designed to support farmers who require a full end-to-end planting service.
Farm Source has partnered with Wildlands to connect farmers that require planting on their farm to a service that guarantees an establishment rate.
This end-to-end service includes site assessment, eco-sourcing of plants, planting, maintenance and monitoring. There are a number of planting options including riparian, indigenous, shelterbelt and forestry/woodlot – all providing positive benefits.
We know that farmers are motivated to plant for various reasons and we want to cater to all of these:
