Sustainable Backyards 2018

Sustainable Backyards is a month-long celebration held every year, encouraging the community to make lifestyle changes to live a more sustainable life.

Sustainable Backyards is comprised of over 140 free or low cost EnviroEvents supporting sustainable living, conservation and other awesome initiatives that are taking place regionally. It aims to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities. These range anywhere from growing your own food, beach/estuary clean ups, consumer choices, cooking, solar home seminars, bush walks, exhibitions, farmers/ night markets, kids events and movie screenings.

SBY provides a mechanism for communities and organisations in the Bay of Plenty to have a voice in the protection of their environment and people.

We hope you will be inspired to join these initiatives and take action yourself!
