Jim Beam Homegrown supports all things green and we'd appreciate it if you could make your presence at the festival as environmentally friendly as possible.

Our earth is precious & with everyone doing something small we can make a big difference.    


At the 2016 festival we were able to recycle 86% of all our waste away from Landfill which was a great effort. Please help us & don't just drop rubbish on the ground, try & use the recycling stations.

There will be lots of clearly labeled recycling stations throughout all of the waterfront venues so please check the signs and use the right one. There will be 3 bins at each station - 2 for  plastic, cans & glass and 1 for non-recyclable and food waste.


Wherever possible lets use public transport. Wellington has got a great system and it's a good way to help the planet, along with keeping some ping in your pocket. There's no dedicated parking at Homegrown, just the standard carparks around Wellington so public transport is where it's at.

Check out the transport page for bus & train timetables.
