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 -As we remain in Alert Level 1, we have a QR code on the hall door, so garden visitors to record when they visit. If you don't have the app we ask that you keep a personal record.
Our compost bins remain open to the community, and coffee husks are available to add on top of your vegetable scraps. You can also use taps again to clean your bucket the gardens.
The Hall is also open to regular users. We no longer hire the hall for one-off events, but if you are interested in hiring on a more regular basis and want to talk, please get in touch.
Our Garden Working Bees are on the first and third Sunday of each month from 11-1pm, and every Tuesday morning in term time 10-12. We always welcome new people to visit the gardens and get involved in a way that suits.

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-2pm. 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.
