This year, the Organic NZ Award ceremony took place online, thanks to uninvited guest, Covid-19, celebrating and honouring the hard work of our organic producers. The ceremony was hosted by Pete Huggins of the Soil Association and publisher of Organic NZ magazine, Ruud Kleinpaste, everyone’s favourite ‘Bug Man’, and other familiar faces from the world of organic farming, with an appearance from our very own ODPG Committee Member, Gaz Ingram.
Many congratulations to all the 2021 winners and nominees!
