New working bee time added

Autumn brings more time in the māra (garden)!

As well as the regular Friday afternoon working bee, we are now also offering an extra working bee at UC’s community garden on Tuesday mornings from 10am – 12pm. Working bees run all year, including in the holidays.


Drop in for your weekly fix of gardening, fresh air, tea and chats. All volunteers get to take home a share of the fresh harvest. 🥕

Free pizza at the Community Garden Open Day!

Te Ngaki o Waiutuutu (Waiutuutu Community Garden) is having an open day, and you’re invited!

This is a great opportunity to explore and learn about UC’s beautiful community garden, meet some like-minded people, and be the first to learn about our upcoming workshops. We’ll be firing up the rocket oven to make some yummy pizzas, along with sharing some other yummy kai. 🍕

Drop in between 12pm – 2pm on Friday 23 February.

Our garden is located just off Engineering Road, along the Waiutuutu stream pathway. Learn more and see a map for how to find the garden here.
