SOME of the region's disadvantaged residents are finding great satisfaction in working to progress one of the area's booming agricultural sectors.

New Horizons Enterprises, which operates an Australian Disability Enterprise in Coffs Harbour, is manufacturing a drip line wire peg for exclusive supply to CostaExchange, which manages about 800 hectares of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, mainly at Corindi.

At the height of the picking season, CostaExchange employs close to 1000 people to pick and process up to 35 tonnes of berries a day.

The drip line wire peg plays a key part in a sustainable watering and nutrient management system at CostaExchange.

The wire pegs are used for securing the drip lines on the berry beds, keeping the lines near the plants.

The wire pegs are shaped in such a way that makes them ideally suited to run drip lines down either side of the young blueberry bushes, effectively delivering the valuable water and nutrients required for healthy growth.

The contract to supply the pegs, in turn is creating positive change for people and communities in and around the Coffs Harbour region.

New Horizons Enterprises is always looking for new opportunities to support its crew of workers.

So, if you have a unique business proposition that would benefit your company and the community, phone the Business Service Centre at 16 Keona Cct, Coffs Harbour on 6691 8101.
