Heart of the Community

This project is a Farmlands initiative to promote community pride in rural towns throughout New Zealand. This large scale art project will see Mr G paint locally inspired murals on 15 Farmlands stores, sharing stories of what makes their town and the land surrounding it unique. It’s an exciting time, as the HEART of the Community project will definitely put Farmlands on the map. If you would like to follow the journey, make sure you check out the Farmlands Facebook page and HEART of the community webpage, which will be updated along the way.
