Beyond Organic NZ Tour Launch with Stefan Sobkowiak

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sun 15 Mar ’15, 10:00am – 4:00pm


Matakana Hall, 43 Matakana Valley Road, Matakana


All Ages

Enjoy a range of juicy dialogue and multiple speakers and stalls at this day long event.

Stefan Sobkowiak will be sharing his experience redesigning a commercial apple orchard, through and beyond organic, to a fully-fledged Permaculture Orchard.

Five short, sharp, snappy presentations are being prepared, to highlight local food projects and enterprises in the bio-region and beyond. Come, hear from and connect to some of the leaders in the field, and welcome Stefan Sobkowiak of the Permaculture Orchard Film. Stefan will show segments from the film and talk about the methods, the logic and the economics behind his diverse and productive orchard-based system.

The Matakana Village Hall is one of those solid rural halls - capacity 200 - built when small, intensive agriculture was how we grew almost all of NZ's food. In the spacious grounds of this well maintained hall is the local community garden. Inside there is room enough for tables of information and people to talk with about your project. This is a great place to begin the tour, given its proximity to Auckland, access to the North, its history, and the region's growing population.
