EcoWest EcoFest North

The EcoWest Festival is happening again for 2015 with a month-long series of events from March 15 – April 12 which is inspired by the Eco City way of life, and organised by EcoMatters Environment Trust.

The EcoWest Festival is the ultimate celebration of the leadership role Waitakere has played in creatively engaging citizens in environmental restoration and sustainable lifestyles since the early 90s when we became the world’s first Eco City.

The events will be hosted by innovative environmental organisations, businesses, sustainability experts and creative entrepreneurs who embrace eco ideas through their work.

Kaipatiki Project is delighted to host this mini-festival, supported by Auckland Council, which builds on the success of this year’s month-long Ecofest (March-April 2015).

Whether your goal is to kick your backyard into shape and grow some veges, spend more time outdoors caring for the Kiwi bush we all love, or maybe you are driven to go the whole hog and live with no waste or create a home that takes nothing from the earth – this 8 day Mini Ecofest is packed with inspiration and fresh thinking.
