Innermost Gardens is a community garden in Mt Victoria, Wellington. Nestled between an inner-city suburb and and city's famed town belt, the gardens can be enjoyed by many.
Our mission is "Growing community through hands in the soil", so whether your passion is growing food, strong communities, permaculture design or sustainability, we've got what you may be looking for to get your taste buds active, your mind intrigued or your hands dirty.
COVID 19 UPDATE - In level 2, our compost bins are open, but contactless; and Working Bees have resumed, but please bring a mask and your own gloves.
The Hall is open to regular users only under level 2 rules.
There are QR codes on the hall for contact tracing.
BACKYARD GARDENING SERIES
Join Tim Packer on Sunday 5 December 1-4pm for a Mushroom cultivation workshop. Tim will talk about the role of fungi in our ecosystem and in food production. Take a tour around the gardens to look at some fungi and our mushroom piles. Hear about common gourmet mushrooms and cultivation methods. Tim will teach you about equipment and set up methods for oyster mushroom production - spawn, substrates, sterilisation, inoculation and fruiting. Tickets are $30. Register here.
CALLING MIDWEEK GARDENERS
After a successful trial, we are now running Tuesday morning garden working bees every week in term time, with a focus on grounds beautification. If you are free from 10am - 12pm, please come along and join us.
AND WE GARDEN ON SUNDAYS TOO
We're still running garden working bees on the first and third Sunday of the month from 11am-1pm. These tend to focus on planting crops, making compost and garden maintenance.
HOW DO WE DIFFER FROM OTHER COMMUNITY GARDENS?
We were interviewed for a university assignment feature on Wellington Gardens. The video below explains a bit more about us, and other Wellington community gardens.
