Über uns

Lincoln Envirotown Trust (LET) is a charitable trust dedicated to fostering a community-owned process for sustainability in Lincoln, New Zaeland. We started out in 2006 as a sub-committee of the Lincoln Community Committee.

• To promote the long term environmental sustainability of Lincoln Township with the understanding that this is also the basis for social, cultural and economic sustainability in the future.
• To educate about and raise awareness of environmental sustainability issues and to provide information about how to achieve environmental sustainability.
• To provide appropriate opportunities for personal and community decision making to ensure that the environmental, social, cultural and economic sustainability of the Lincoln Township is promoted.
• To act as a role model for other communities wanting to progress towards environmental sustainability

Main subjects:

Lincoln Envirotown provides many services for individuals, businesses and community groups.
• The Lincoln Envirotown caravan (LET Mobile Sustainability Centre) provides information and resources to help people make more sustainable choices. The LET Sustainability Centre contains brochures, pamphlets, and a wide variety of information on environmental and sustainability issues.
• Community garden: The Lincoln Community Garden is part of a growing network of community gardens throughout New Zealand. This is available for community groups, individuals or businesses. It provides a sharing of skills, so come to learn and come to share what you know or come just to enjoy.
• Organic growing project: plots available on the Biological Husbandry Unit at Lincoln University.
