Community Gardens working bee 

Our gardens have been producing so much food! Over winter we're going to focus on keeping the plots in shipshape so we're ready to leap into spring plantings. Join us on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month - behind the Police station on Wii Neera street. This month we'll be focussing on weeding/maintenance and sowing garlic and broad beans.   

Join the Whaingaroa Community Gardens

We coordinate the community gardens in Raglan to ensure this community space (and the plants within it) flourishes.

We take every opportunity to enable our community to access healthy sustainable organic food.

Crop Swap

Regular gatherings enable community connection and sharing of abundance through exchange of homegrown or homemade goods.
