The Living Wood Fair, a celebration of all things to do with wood, takes place in Golden Bay near Nelson over the weekend of April 21/22.


Set in the picturesque environments of Totara Whenua & Fairholme Gallery in East Takaka, the

Living Wood Fair will appeal to anyone who likes wood, including lifestyle and forestry-block owners, farmers, woodworkers and millers, self-builders and tiny home enthusiasts, forestry advocates, environmentalists etc.


The fair will be split into four zones, each focusing on key themes: all aspects of growing trees and turning them into timber; environmental sustainability, care and protection; creative arts, wood and bush crafts; and natural shelters and homes.


Two hours each day will be dedicated to a public forum about forestry in New Zealand with input from a variety of experts, forestry businesses and the general public. Themes include ‘How to future proof forestry with changing environmental challenges’ and ‘How to increase diversity in land use’. The NZ Forest Owners Association will also have a presence at the fair.
