Bay of Plenty SHED Meeting

Registration Closed

Event Detail

A SHED meeting will be held on Thursday 18th February at Tharfield Nursery, located near Kati Kati in the sunny Bay of Plenty.

Here we have a unique opportunity to see how one of NZ's premium supplier of fruit trees and shrubs is taking a proactive approach to tackling the challenges facing modern nursery businesses in the areas of workforce and production. We will be taking a tour of their nursery site that is implementing the LEAN management system. 

SHED stands for See, Hear, Engage, Debate. They are a chance for members from around a region to come together to connect and share ideas and expertise. 

A shared lunch will be followed by a tour of the spectacular nursery.

Sarah Watson from People Management & Development ( will be travelling up to provide a presentation on the LEAN management system and the benefits it could have on your nursery production.

 We will then have a discussion on the areas of workforce and staffing and an update on NZPPI’s latest activities.

Lunch and afternoon tea will be provided - please inform us of any dietary requirements.
