Taranaki Sustainable Backyards Trail 2018
Oct

to Nov 4

Taranaki Sustainable Backyards Trail 2018

The Taranaki Sustainable Backyards Trail 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 to do reduce their impact on the environment and get involved in their community. 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. As part of the Trail programme, we ask local enthusiasts and experts to share their knowledge via talks and demonstrations on various topics around sustainability. We hope you will be inspired to join local community initiatives, engage in educational opportunities and take action yourself - change starts in your backyard!

More about the Living the Change documentary
Living the Change explores solutions to the global crises we face today – solutions any one of us can be part of – through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way.
Directors Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson have brought together stories from their travels, along with interviews with experts able to explain how we come to be where we are today. From forest gardens to composting toilets, community supported agriculture to timebanking, Living the Change offers ways we can rethink our approach to how we live.
Each and every one of us has the power to create change. Living the Change sets out to inspire us to do just that. There are so many exciting and important ideas and initiatives out there, so much hope and inspiration. We want to generate discussion as widely and deeply as possible about how each of us views the future and our part in it.

Seedsaver Autumn Gathering

Seedsaver Autumn Gathering

In The Bears words.....

"We started out 7 years ago as a 3 acre bare paddock with a small plantation of pine, a house and lots of mud. Wanting to become more self sufficient and sustainable we designed our property along the permaculture guidelines we learned on the Organic Horticulture Course. We are continuously working on developing our property into the permaculture zones as time and money allow. Our soil is very heavy clay close to the house so we are developing raised food producing beds. We have planted out 2 orchards on either side of our house as well as shelter belts. We share our home with 9 sheep, 2 pigs, chooks, ducks, turkeys. bees, rabbits and 5 cats."

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who is starting with a bare piece of land, to learn from Martin and Ann in regards to starting a productive garden from scratch

Please bring along any seed to clean as our big seed cleaning sieves will be there.

The seed bank will be there for seed swapping, please bring a plate for afternoon tea and a koha for Seedsavers Taranaki is always appreciated. Also, bring along any ideas and experiences that you may like to see used and shared by Seedsavers Taranaki

The gathering will take place come rain or shine!
 
Please RSVP Jayne at seedsavers.taranaki@gmail.com phone 06 756 6192 or come along on the day
