About this event

The Taranaki Sustainable Backyards Trail is an annual event run by Sustainable Taranaki that celebrates local efforts in sustainability and inspires everyday people in the community to make lifestyle changes in order to live more sustainable lives. The Trail involves individuals, families and community organisations generously opening their ‘backyards' to the public to inspire us with their creativity, innovation and dedication to living a more sustainable lifestyle. From solar panels and eco-homes to bio-intensive vegetable production and bees, the Trail offers a wide range of examples of what everyday people can do to reduce their impact on the environment and get involved in their community. Visit www.sustainablebackyards.org.nz for more.

The Sustainable Backyards Trail is more than just about viewing gardens - it's about sharing knowledge, ideas and inspiration. It’s also an opportunity for you to connect with people in the community who are enthusiastic about growing their own food, looking after the land, saving money and sharing resources, Collectively, they contribute to a more resilient Taranaki, New Zealand and world.

We hope you will be inspired to join local community initiatives, engage in educational opportunities and take action yourself - change starts in your backyard!
