  • Thordon Farmers Market Hill Street Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

Do you find yourself asking - Why go organic? Isn't it too expensive? What food in New Zealand is more likely to have pesticide residues?

These questions and more will be discussed by Dr Heli Matilainen and Alison White of the Safe Food Campaign at a presentation on "Why go organic" at Thorndon Farmers Market (11am)
