A project in achievable sustainability!

As a journey in sustainable, eco-focused building, the goal of The Hawea Grove project is to create a tasteful, sustainable living and visitor sanctuary, among a grove of established fruit and nut trees.

The Hawea Grove is  finalist in the “Communicating for Impact” category for the 2020 Sustainable Business Awards.

Here at haweagrove.nz we will be documenting this journey through a webisode series, with accompanying editorial, chronicling the twists and turns of the building and growing process, from a consumer’s perspective.
