EARTH DAY 2023
Envirohub Marlborough's Earth Day Picnic in the Park is our annual Flagship event, bringing our Marlborough community together to celebrate our beautiful Earth and share ways in which we can better protect it!
Proudly a part of the earthday.org movement!
"For Earth Day 2023, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly) and implement (equitably). Businesses, governments, and citizens - everyone accounted for and everyone accountable." earthday.org
A full family day of earth friendly fun awaits at Pollard Park in Blenheim, to mark international Earth Day, organised by Marlborough Events in conjunction with Envirohub Marlborough.
This annual zero-waste community picnic, which includes local musicians, awesome giveaways, environmental activities, tips about how to be environmentally sustainable at home and information about Marlborough’s fantastic environmental projects is a must on the Marlborough Events Calendar.
Bring your own picnic, a blanket to sit on and enjoy Earth Day sustainably. Entry is free!
This event is going to be entirely zero waste - and will be supported by our brand new Zero Waste Dishwashing Trailer and service.
We will be supplying food vendors and the public with dishes, bowls, cutlery, cups (you name it!) that can be picked up by the public at stations and taken to the vendors, or if preferred, we can supply the vendors with a supply as well.
We encourage the public to bring their own picnic set and/or their own cups/plates etc to eat with so we produce NO waste during the course of the event.
The system is simple and we will have our team of staff and volunteers on the day to help you out.
People grab what they need (clean and sterilised!), they take this to the vendor of their choice, the dirty dish is then placed at a collection station (signed and placed around the grounds and/or taken directly to the trailer) where we hygienically clean and sterilise everything for reuse again, and again, and again... and again!

We are seeking partnerships to help us grow Earth Day Picnic in the Park! We believe our event supports the sustainable prosperity of the places where you live and work.
We are seeking funding to help us deliver our message through a fun free event, while allocating our current funds to ongoing conservation work. Funding sourced will go a long way in supporting us to implement our 2023 goals of providing a wider range of workshops, engaging a larger number of the Marlborough community and promoting Earth Day outside of Marlborough to the Top of the South.
