Mt Eden Community Garden group to become an incorporated society

News from the Community Garden Group:

“The group who formed the Mt Eden Community Garden group have decided to become an incorporated society. We met with the council last week to find out if they would allow us (the Mt Eden Community Garden group & Hand Weavers & Spinners Guild) to jointly apply for a lease of 25 Poronui Street before our incorporation had come through. We got a definitive no. Both entities had to have a legal entity. A solution was offered that the Garden Group would join the Spinners and Weavers Guild and they would have part of their objectives would be to pursue organic gardening and to grow dye plants. We are now applying under the Hand Weavers & Spinners Guild for the lease. We have gained letters of support from various organisations- noteably Friends of Maungawhau, Mount Eden Village People, Disabled Citizens Centre, Lynda Hallinan- NZ Gardener so far.”
