RURAL Women New Zealand (RWNZ) this week announced the 2018 Supreme Winner of the NZI Rural Women Business Awards.

“Marie’s passion, expertise and commitment to her business, the environment and her community is reflected in the outstanding work Plant Hawke’s Bay carries out,” said RWNZ national president, Fiona Gower.

The category winners who competed for the Supreme Award gathered in the Banquet Hall at Parliament in Wellington on Tuesday, hosted by Jenny Marcroft MP with guest speaker, US Ambassador to New Zealand Scott Brown.

“Being a part of the NZI Rural Women New Zealand Business Awards is a tremendous opportunity for me and a wonderful way to showcase Plant Hawke’s Bay and build its profile, enabling me to tell my native plant story,” Mrs Taylor said.

“It is also great to meet other inspiring rural women and hear of their stories of business success.”

Plant Hawke’s Bay grew from her desire to save local plant species by getting them back into their natural landscape.

Mrs Taylor and her team focus on eco-sourcing seeds and cuttings from Hawke’s Bay, ensuring the regeneration of local plant species for future generations.

They grow bulk revegetation lines for restoration and conservation.
