Eye on Nature
Access to this event is via Everglade Drive.
Bring the kids and a picnic to the spectacular Auckland Botanic Gardens, and enjoy this free environmental education event with hands-on activities, crafts and games for the whole family.
This year's Eye On Nature theme is 'Edibles - from the ground to the table' which will encourage children to begin exploring the importance of the many life forms in the garden, composting, organic gardening, healthy eating and how it all intricately works together.
The big idea is that the environment provides food, so let's look after it!
Secondary school students from all over Auckland will face-off against each other in a specially created pop-up kitchen. This will be a Masterchef style challenge where they'll create 'Ground to the table' dishes.
At 6pm, Primary and High School groups will take to the runway to present their entries in the Wearable Art competition.
Entry, parking and all activities are free. Food and drink vendors on site. Event will proceed rain or shine.
