Heritage Month of the Nelson Farmers Market

We are really proud and excited to be part of Tuku 21 Heritage Month. During the remaining three Wednesdays in April we will be running demonstrations that celebrate and acknowledge the role that producing and growing  food has played in Nelson’s Heritage.
