Information

West Auckland is gearing up for a month-long celebration of our awe-inspiring environment this autumn. From 11 March to 9 April 2017.

EcoMatters Environment Trust will partner with the Western local boards to host EcoWest Festival, an annual festival of more than 100 events across west Auckland that celebrate our unique environment and what we do to care for it.

“We’re super excited to be offering over 100 events this year, our biggest festival yet! We have so many people who do great things which make west Auckland an awesome place to live, and this festival is about sharing their passion and skills with the wider community,” says Festival Manager Myrthe Braam. “Workshops and events during EcoWest will provide opportunities to learn practical things you can do at home like composting, growing vegetables, identifying weeds and reducing your household waste. Or you can head outdoors and show some love to our treasured parks and streams.”

The whole family can get involved with activities like family bike rides and guided walks learning about butterflies, and there will also be events to get people out and discovering the natural wonders in their backyard. Most of the events will be free or low cost.

Some of the new events this year include the Down and Dirty // Rooftop Party at Lopdell House, Titirangi, The Green Effect Comedy Show featuring Te Radar, Penny Ashton, Pax Assadi and Brendon Green, Free Park Yoga at Olympic Park and Conscious Layers Action Nights where you can learn the basics of repairing clothes.

EcoWest Festival will end with a bang with EcoDay on Sunday 9 April, a fun family-friendly day out featuring loads of activities, live performances and great food. EcoDay will be held at EcoMatters Environment Trust and Olympic Park in New Lynn.

The Festival is hosted by EcoMatters Environment Trust, with generous support from Henderson-Massey Local Board, Waitakere Ranges Local Board, Whau Local Board, The Trusts Community Foundation and Greenstar Energy Solutions.
