The clean up crews helping the recovery of farms and farmers are on a long term mission to help where they can. 258 farmers requested help from the Enhanced Taskforce Green programme with students or job seekers doing unskilled work. Ministry of Social Development spokesperson Shane Carter says so far they have completed work on 89 farms and partially completed a further 61. He says the Taskforce Green workers will be in the community for as long as they are required helped along by additional funding from the recent Budget.
