SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

There are amazing things happening in the Kāpiti Coast District. We are proud of the resourcefulness, ingenuity, thoughtfulness and generosity of the people who live here.

COMMUNITY GARDEN PARTIES

Kāpiti Community Garden Parties take place across the district through late summer and autumn involving free workshops, activities, and festivities. It’s about gardening, but also recognising the wider role community gardens can play in community building, education and encouraging local food production. 

GREEN GARDENER

Hannah Zwartz is the Kāpiti Coast District Council's Green Gardener, she gives advice to groups and individuals in the community about water conservation and sustainable gardening practices.

 

GREENER NEIGHBOURHOODS

Greener Neighbourhoods is a community-led, council-supported initiative. At its heart, it’s about you and your neighbours coming together to increase resilience, build community, reduce environmental impact and save money.

ENVIROSCHOOLS

The Enviroschools programme supports children and young people to plan, design and implement sustainability actions that are important to them and their communities.

ECO HOME ADVICE

Free sustainable home advice, to help make your home healthier and more comfortable.
