Sustainable Home and Garden Show

Sustainable Home and Garden Show with special guest Mike Van de Elzen 

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2014 Sustainable Home and Garden Show.  It was a great success and we'd like to give a big shout out to our special guest, Mike Van de Elzen, great food, great times.

The Käpiti Coast District Council is at the forefront of the sustainability challenge, as recognised by our win at the 2011 Green Ribbon Awards.  This show is our signature event and has grown to become the premier sustainability-oriented annual event in the lower North Island.
