 CREATE AN EVENT 

As New Zealand's organic sector grows and evolves, we want you to be part of our annual celebration! 

However, due to the recent COVID-19 restrictions, we have had to adapt our in-person events.

There are a number of factors to consider whether or not you can host an event locally. The Alert Level your community is in at the time of the event will dictate the number of people that can gather, if at all, and other protocols that must be followed. Please visit the government’s COVID-19 website for up-to-date information. Organic Week will promote all events that are legally allowed to take place on our website and social media channels. We ask that you adhere to government rules when promoting and running any events. As of today, no events are allowed. We do know this might change by the time Organic Week rolls around.

Following government rules is critical! The last thing we need is an organic event becoming the cause for Delta to spread further into the community. Please hold events only when it is safe for your community to do so, and when your community feels ready to do so. If it doesn’t happen during Organic Week, that’s okay. We can celebrate organics all year!

So whether you're an organic retailer, producer or farm, school or restaurant, we encourage you to join us on our annual journey to educate Kiwis about the benefits of organics through events, activations and so much more!
