2011 Bay of Plenty Regional Supreme Winners

Graham and Mavis Dyer have a talent for nurturing not only plants and the environment, but people too.

Their Bay Park Orchard at Ruahihi is a show case for the kiwifruit industry, is pioneering commercial gingko production, has an arboretum of exotic trees and for years has provided much needed employment for people from Vanuatu.

Mavis and Graham have been formerly adopted into a Vanuatu family and granted a piece of ‘custom land’ and a house, in recognition of their long established close relationship, years of support and provision of employment for members.
