EnviroFest: celebrating sustainability

EnviroFest is a celebration of the Palmerston North environmental sector. It aims to give the existing environmental sector a boost through public recognition and profile raising while also engaging the wider community into sustainability issues. Through the festival we hope to inspire and educate the Palmerston North community by increasing awareness about ways to live sustainably, through vibrant and lively activities. Please, register your interest (if required) and look for more details and dates on our event page or on our Facebook page.
