Community Garden

SeedlingsRanui Community Garden is a community organization committed to promoting health and wellbeing and a sustainable environment. It is a place where people can come together, with a common interest in growing their own food, while improving their health and enhancing their environment.

The garden is about promoting organic fruit and vegetable growing, empowering local people to learn new skills; promoting income generating ideas and self reliant projects, to be inclusive and accessible, to learn from, accept and respect other cultures and for the garden to be sustainable.

You can lease a plot of either 23 or 28 square meters of garden in the community shared plots. In your plot you can grow whatever organic fruit or veggies you choose. You can share your ideas and knowledge with others in the garden and gain valuable help and advice. The coordinator will also be able to assist you with handy information, tips and seeds of wisdom.
