Community gardens are a place to come together to grow food, flowers and herbs. A fun way to garden—and it’s not just plants that grow, it’s a great place to make friends, learn new skills and work together in a caring community.
In some community gardens, everyone works together and the produce is either distributed between the gardeners, or given away to organisations such as food banks. Let’s Get Growing Community Gardens are a Kiwi version of the English allotment gardens where people rent a garden space and get to eat the produce they grow there. While some of our gardeners do indeed give to Food Rescue, acheivable gardening for everyday people is our main aim…helping people develop skills to increase their own (and therefore their communities) food security.
