Nau mai and welcome to Organic Week!
Where Nature Thrives | May 1-7, 2024

Soil & Health NZ and Organics Aotearoa New Zealand are pleased to host Organic Week 2024. From 1 to 7 May, this national celebration of organic agriculture is themed “Where Nature Thrives” and promises to showcase organic producers as guardians of biodiversity through organic farming. This year, we’ll gather stories and speakers to highlight how organic agriculture is part of the solution to our biodiversity crisis.

Join us, and together, we will celebrate organic food, farming and people nationwide through events and promotions hosted across the motu. Let’s spark conversations that develop deeper connections between what we eat and how this affects our environment – biodiversity, soil, water and ultimately our climate.

What’s on this Organic Week?

Organic Week is a celebration of everything organic with events and happenings around the motu, from farm tours to workshops, movie screenings, and webinars. Find out what’s happening near you.

5 Ways to Get Involved in Organic Week Aotearoa 2024

Organic Week is an opportunity for hope. It’s a week where people can connect over the goal of making the world a better place for today, tomorrow, and the future. Here are five ways you can get involved.

1. Organise an event in your local community — think urban farm tour, workshop, movie night, pot-luck dinner or get a local farmer to share their story. Don’t forget to share the details; the Organic Week team can share the love.
2. Spread the word. Share content about organic agriculture and its associated benefits for our climate and biodiversity on social media, write an article for your local paper, or even good old-fashioned face-to-face chats, which can be influential with friends, family, or colleagues.
3. Support organic growers and producers — add some organic produce to your weekly shop, head to your local farmers’ market or independent retailer, and hunt down your local market gardener for a weekly box of freshly picked goodies. 
4. Start a garden — the most pocket-friendly way to go organic is to grow your own. Even renters can grow pots full of herbs and greens, or even better, join your local community garden, meet some like-minded folks and get growing.
5. Write to your local MP. Share your concern about the effects of industrial agriculture on climate change and biodiversity. Find out their strategy for supporting your community or, specifically, their plan to reduce agricultural emissions.
