Community garden updates

A small group of interested gardeners met at the new Mt Eden Community centre on Ngaruhoe Street recently to formalise our structure.  It is an exciting development as we can now put in place a plan on how to take our garden forward into the new spring.

To date we have had another donation of mulch from Treescape, which has enabled us to tidy up around the raised beds. We have put in a new bed for the strawberries on the other side of the field again the shade cloth for the bowling club bowlers.
Last weekend we had a lesson on how to set up our composting system from Kris’ partner Mike.

We are now looking at fund raising and how we can establish three more raised beds before next spring. If you are interested in becoming a friend of the Mt Eden Community garden and would like to donate some money please email  Kris at

If you have untreated wood or access to some good soil please contact us at the same e-mail address.
We meet every Sunday at 2pm for two hours of gardening and you would be very welcome to come and help or to just join us for a chat. We are at the end of Poronui Street behind the rock wall on the left hand side.
