Join horticulture and the world’s move to wellness 

Wellness in all aspects of our lives – health including mental health, our relationships, work, and the environment in which we live and grow our food – is increasingly seen as a must, not a nice to have.

Future generation’s demands for wellness will be far more vigorous than the current generations are.

New Zealand horticulture is well-placed to play a critical role in future wellness, as lives and expectations change over the new decade.

The Horticulture Conference 2021 brings together People, Land and Innovation under the imperative of Growing Wellness.

Building on 2019's success, the 2021 conference will feature a compelling range of speakers, discussions, debates and displays at Mystery Creek.

The conference will go right to the heart of the challenges facing horticulture in the context of opportunities the industry has to thrive and make best use of its People, Land and Innovation, to drive wellness across New Zealand and the world. 

We promise that you will come away from 2021’s conference with ideas about how you can take advantage of wellness to ensure your business’s longevity as growing conditions alter in response to climate, society’s and government’s demands.

I look forward to seeing you at Mystery Creek for a compelling conference experience in August 2021.

 - Mike Chapman, Chief Executive, Horticulture New Zealand
