Welcome!
The 15th Annual Riverton Heritage Harvest Festival was held in Riverton on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th March 2024.

We had a fantastic weekend of workshops, demonstrations, good food & good company! 

Over the festival weekend there were more than 24 workshops, teaching skills that included: fermenting foods, caring for fruit trees, making sourdough bread, harakeke weaving, and darning your gardening clothes (and much, much more)! 

 

Thank you so much to everyone who came and helped us make it a great weekend.

Look out for our Bountiful Backyards Workshop Weekend in early October!
