Don’t miss this year’s Sustainable Home & Garden Show on 21 and 22 March.

There will be a huge range of eco-friendly products on display, talks and demonstrations, vibrant school gardens, a treasure hunt for kids and plenty of activities for them to try.

Back by popular demand, a giant Lego® model of what Paraparaumu town centre might look like in 2035 will also be on show to enthrall young and old alike!

Plus, great food will be available and entertainment will run throughout the weekend.

The event runs from 9am to 4pm on both days at Kapiti Primary School, Rimu Road, Paraparaumu.
