Gardening programmes

​The Compost Collective

Learn about composting, improving your soil and producing fertilisers.

For more information and to book a course, see the Compost Collective website.

Growing for health

This programme teaches basic gardening techniques from seed germination, to growing and harvesting. We have teaching gardens at various parks around Manukau.

Participants are allocated a 5m x 5m gardening plot for a whole season (summer or winter) and can keep any produce grown on the plot.

We encourage you to apply the techniques you learn in the programme at home.

For more information and to apply for a gardening plot, visit the Auckland Teaching Gardens website.
