YSI Terms and Conditions

Yealands Wines in conjunction with the Marlborough District Council and the Blenheim Sun are calling for applications for the Yealands Wines Marlborough Sustainability Initiative (YSI).

The Yealands Wines Marlborough Sustainability Initiative will make available $50,000 every year for local environmental projects. Projects can apply for individual grants of up to $10,000 per year.

The Initiative specifically supports not-for-profit community efforts to improve bio-diversity across Marlborough.

So much good work is already being done throughout Marlborough, and this fund has been established to help community groups do even more.
