Envirohub Bay of Plenty
Envirohub Bay of Plenty is one of 14 Environment Centres around NZ, aimed at helping local communities learn about and take action on environmental issues that support a sustainable future. Envirohub is a non-profit, non-political organisation that works within the Bay of Plenty community delivering innovative and practical projects and programmes designed to educate, inform and inspire our people.
One programme run by Envirohub is Sustainable Backyards, which is a month-long calendar of events in March hosted throughout the Bay.
These events support sustainable living, conservation and other awesome initiatives that are taking place regionally. SBY aims to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities ranging from growing your own food, beach/estuary cleanups, consumer choices, cooking, bush walks, farmers/ night markets, kids events, frock swaps, and movie screenings.
In 2019 funding was received from the J Friis Fund.
