Your campus has a community garden!

New to campus, or been here a couple of years? Either way, you may not have realised that UC has a beautiful community garden, right here on campus!

Waiutuutu Community Garden is your garden too. It’s not only a productive vege garden and orchard, it also provides a relaxing spot to take a break, eat your lunch, or catch up with friends – all right in the middle of campus.

Feel like getting your hands dirty? Want to learn more about organic gardening? Keen to meet some like-minded people? Come and join one of our weekly working bees! Spend time in the garden with us and take home some fresh organic veges for dinner.

When: Every Friday afternoon, 1.00pm – 5.00pm (summer months) and 12.00pm – 4.00pm (winter months).

Where: Waiutuutu Community Garden, off Engineering Road. See the map below, or check out our website for some more info about volunteering with us.


Or, why not come along to our Community Garden Open Day next week? 

Drop in on Friday 28 February from 12pm – 1.30pm for garden tours, workshops, seedling planting and homemade wood fired pizza. There is the option to stay on and join the regular working bee afterwards, so come along and say hi!

See the Facebook event here for more information.

Any questions? Check out the Sustainability Office webpage, UC Community Gardens Facebook page or email Niki Jones, Community Gardens Co-ordinator.

We look forward to meeting you in the garden!
