ORGANIC FARM NZ EVENT

Will be running a field day 1pm-3pm Saturday 8 August 2015 at the Waikato Waldorf School.

The School has a large vegetable garden and orchard and has decided to get it certified organic with OrganicFarmNZ. This shows a real commitment by the School, and their gardener Kerin Coleman, to showing students and their parents, how vegetables and fruit can be grown organically.

As part of the certification process our organic auditor John Palmer from Tauranga will carry out an audit of the property to confirm that the OrganicFarmNZ certification standard is being complied with (and if something is not being complied with, what steps are needed to take for compliance). There will be lots of discussion about the garden, the certified organic standard we follow and the certification process. So if you are interested in what’s involved in the certification process, or are just interested in talking to people who are passionate about organics, then join us at the workshop.

This is a free field day. It will be followed by a cup of tea, etc. Please email me to register so we have some idea of numbers.The best entrance to get to the garden is to park in the School carpark at 68 Te Manatu Drive, Hamilton. The garden is about 20 metres along the School driveway – we will have a sign there.

RegardsTony Banks

Chairperson - OrganicFarmNZ Waikato
