Superhood – Street level community engagement

February 18th, 2013

In a resource constrained future it will be important to have networks that will be mutually beneficial to meeting needs. The most apparent, accessible and relevant network available to most people is the street they live on.

Superhood is a concept that allows you to bring all our great Mt Eden Village People initiatives to your street. Reduce waste, plant fruit trees, create gardens, have street parties, simply get to know your neighbours. The Superhood project is a fun way to connect and engage the residents of a street with a view to making it a more friendly, happy, resilient and inherently more sustainable place to live.

If you live in Mt Eden and would like your street to be safer, full of fruit trees, vegetable gardens, hungry bins and activities that bring your neighbourhood together, contact us. We now have a subgroup to help bring this work to your Mt Eden street.

Zero waste in Mt Eden Village – project updates

February 13th, 2013

We will focus on waste minimisation and continue to report back about positive changes with businesses and cafes that embrace a more sustainable practice, recycle and offer NZ made and fair trade products. We are starting this year with talking to our shops about what they are already doing and how we can help them to reduce more waste going to landfill. Let us know if you would like to help with this.

Mt Eden Community Garden – updates

February 13th, 2013

It has been a busy summer in the community garden.   A small group of gardeners have been coming most weekends and we have a flourishing garden.despite the lack of rain.  We have had a lot of surprises coming out of our compost, especially with kamo kamo and pumpkins.   On the longest day we harvested the garlic crop and the rhubarb is flourishing, the tomatoes are finally starting to ripen with the under planting of basil .We have plans afoot for 2013 to make the garden more productive.  We would love more gardeners to come and join us on Sundays between 2-4pm.  If you are interested please give Michele a ring on 021 216 1684 or 6300789 in the evenings.

The garden is located behind the Mt Eden Bowling Club and our website is
