We are wrapping up our first season of the Kai Gardens project as the summer grows ever hotter – there’s certainly no need for a greenhouse now!

We still have a few more seedlings that need to find new homes, but it has been a fantastic pilot, and there are some thanks due before we close.

Firstly, to all of our wonderful volunteers – ngā mihi nui for all your mahi these past couple of months! They have done an excellent job of germinating, pricking out, potting and watering all the seedlings.

Secondly, to our two fantastic garden experts: Chardy Parkes and Eddie Welsh. They have generously given their time and mahi to get this project off the ground, and shared their knowledge with our volunteers each week. Ngā mihi nui ki a korua.

It is truly wonderful to see a garden come to life and then get to eat what you’ve nurtured, and our team has helped hundreds of seedlings find new homes and become part of people’s meals.

Our demonstration garden is looking fabulous out there – please pop by to see it any time and get some inspiration for what to grow! Our cabbage experiment is past and now a new bed full of Mediterranean herbs and plants are ready to drink in the sun and flourish.

Hopefully you have some lovely summer plans ahead of you, and we will see you back in January when we re-open! If anyone is interested in being involved with the Kai Gardens project next year, please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
