Let's celebrate food!

Sustainable Queenstown has joined forces with local businesses to celebrate eating (we like this!), growing and learning all about good food. Eating well is the basis of good health for me, I eat badly and everything else goes out the window. Add a heady mix of sleepless nights, no exercise and a pinot or five and it all adds up. Learning together as a community about what fuels our bodies is a wonderful way of connecting.
Here we have a week long celebration with events with restaurants, educators and people who are interested in knowing where their food comes from and how to grow, find food and compost. Join the mailing list here.
Be aware some of these are full already so be quick!
