Why are these things always full of leafy greens?
How about stuff people want to eat?
Kumara, tomatoes, capsicum, strawberries (which are easy), corn, beans, zucchini, caulis and such.

 

maybe some fruit - passionfruit, grapes, and so on.

We have grapes, lemons, several varieties of heritage apples, several varieties of peaches, olives, pears, strawberries

 

 

 

also kale - 3 types

 

silverbeet  - 4 types

 

caulis, broccoli, beans (3-5 types) , carrots, pumpkins, tomatos - various varieties, herb gardens, succulnets, bushes, flowers, etc etc etc. Corn in season.

 

 

 

this place has a huge range - one photo doesnt make a garden survey :)

 

 

 

A lot of it comes down to what the individual wants.

 

 

 

If you want to sponsor us a hot house we will happily tackle capsicum , chilli, coffee  and other warm requiring varities.  Passionfuit - not ure how that goes in chch.

Is the produce for sale or do community members have their own patch they garden for themselves? I thought the former, but if you are employing someone, its the latter?

We provide plots for free - the plot 'owners' can do what they want - except we do expect them to turn up once per week to maintain their plot. Nothing worse than stuff sitting useless.

 

The other plots are community. We all work in them, when stuff is grown then the produce is shared. We don't sell produce.

 

The community house has a Maori name, Te Whare Taonga O Nga Iwi Katoa - The house of treasures / resources, for the local people.  Its all about community and helping the locals.

 

I get paid from funds raised through charities such as Tyndal foundation.
