Next meeting MEVP is on the 16th of March

March 6th, 2011

Join us in getting to know our neighbours and build community here. We need your help and passion this year. We hope to start a farmers market in Mt Eden, plant more community fruit trees, expand our waste minimisation project with the shops in the village and to grow lots of more food in our community garden.

We are very excited to have the community centre we can use for some of our meetings and workshops. Join us at 7.00pm on March 16th at the Mt Eden Community Centre on Ngauruhoe St (in the lounge) to share your ideas.
