Day Two of the ODPG ‘ORGANICS Past, Present & Future Conference is Field Trip Day, and we have two fascinating field trips planned. We’ve chartered coaches and organised packed lunches for a great day out. Everyone will be split into two groups to visit the destinations, and the groups will swap venues halfway through the day.
So, let’s take a look at FIELD TRIP TWO…
For something a little bit different, we’re taking a tour of Zealong Organic Tea Estate.
Zealong Tea Estate is the only commercial tea estate in New Zealand, producing 100% organic award-winning tea, and a world-leading destination for tea, art and hospitality.Zealong.com
In 1996, hundreds of tea cuttings were imported from the best tea-growing regions in Asia and 130 made it through quarantine. Today there are a million tea plants thriving over 40 hectares of land. On our tour, we’ll be looking into Zealong’s success story and the organic farming behind their tea cultivation, with a chance to sample the teas.
