We would like to thank the New Zealand Lottery Board for their kind donation of $10,000.00 towards our project to plant 1000 trees with local schools and community groups Auckland wide. We are now hoping that we will receive additional support from other funding applications we submitted. Please register on our website if you would like trees:

Liquid gold in Mt Eden – More beehives for Mt Eden

April 3rd, 2013

We now have our fist Mt Eden honey from our beehives and we would like to thank our beekeepers Sigi, Ben, Dave, Mark and Mimi for looking after the bees. Thanks also to our local board for the funding of the hives in 2012. The honey will be used to raise funds for more beehives in Mt Eden. We are now looking for people that would like a hive to learn how to look after bees. If you are interested and if you live in Mt Eden please contact Les.

14.04.2013 Sustainable Communities, an introduction to Transition Towns

March 29th, 2013

On the 14th of April you are invited to learn about Growing Sustainable Communities, an introduction to Transition Towns. This presentation is the first of two Transition Town events being supported by Auckland Council in conjunction with the Mt Eden Village People (Transition Town Mt Eden), Grey Lynn 2030 and Pt Chevalier Transition Town group.

Transition Towns is a vibrant, international grassroots movement with a framework that communities can use to create positive solutions to the converging environmental, economic and social challenges of our time.

It follows on from a walking tour to showcase the Mt Eden Village People (Transition Town Mt Eden) initiatives that will take place in the morning.

This is an opportunity for all Aucklanders with an interest in sustainability to find out about the Transition Towns movement, hear from active Auckland groups and connect with like-minded others.

Registration is essential for catering purposes
