Changing the way we grow (and distribute) food

Combine HarvesterOver the past few decades we've learned how to move beyond the monoculture model of production, to work with nature and grow food, while enhancing and regenerating ecological systems.

 

The Beyond Organic NZ Tour with Stefan Sobkowiak is an opportunity to hear how these productive, profitable, permaculture-inspired practices work and learn techniques you can apply immediately. Read on to see the video trailer of Stefan's 2-hour Permaculture Orchard film.

 

An extensive calendar of 20 events has been created, from Matakana to the Wairarapa and Motueka to Arrowtown. If you're curious and want to know what these best-practice food growing methods look like register today and you can look forward to discovering valuable information and meeting others who can support you and your goals.
