In an incredible example of community collaboration, ten community organisations - Te Kākano, WAI Wānaka, SUC Free Wānaka, Grow Wānaka, WAO, Kiwi Conservation Club, Team Green from Mount Aspiring College, Friends of Bullock Creek, Phoenix Wildlife Enhancement and Kahu Youth - are coming together under one banner at this year’s Wānaka A&P show, March 12-13, for the very first time.
Our Place is based on the theme of ‘Healthy Ecosystems and Community Wellbeing’. Each of the organisations involved work towards the protection of our environment, sustainability and connection to community. Through Our Place, they’ll be celebrating the beauty of our local environment and using fun interactive learning to demonstrate the delicate relationship between the land, water, flora and fauna, the climate and humankind.
Displays and activities will include a pedal powered juice bike, a macro invertebrates’ tank, propagating native seedlings, building native bird feeders and the Otago Museum's Tech Tent, which shares activities on climate change.
Find out how we are all connected at the A&P showgrounds, between gates five and six behind the President's Ring.
