Community Gardens

Our community gardens not only provide a source of healthy, locally grown food but also opportunities for community connection, networking and learning.

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

Tamariki Mahi Maara – 

growing gardeners

Our educators have been teaching students at Te Mata and Waitetuna schools about environmental sustainability through the hands on experience of creating edible school gardens.

Tamariki Mahi Maara has had a hugely successful year; students have been relishing trying new healthy foods they have grown in their garden, they proudly take home bags of fresh vegetables to their families and are inspired to connect with, and care for, their environment.

This project has reached beyond our garden, inspiring other gardens in the wider school. Teachers are eager to incorporate growing food into classroom learning and students have been excited to take their new gardening skills home.
