Do you know where your food comes from or where your food scraps end up?
Help support Kai Cycle. A project from some of the members of Wellington's Local Food Network.
We want to Divert organic matter from going into the landfill through a composting service called Kai Cycle. We are running a pledgeme for the setup costs of the project and to give Wellingtonians a way to compost their food scraps when they do not have the space to do it.

check out our pledgeme! https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/1845

Make sure you have a look at the Bloopers video under updated, it is pretty funny!

Hey Rachel, is it a  community project? If so, I know a free mulch place (but might not be able to come on the day/time you're after). Cheers, Lillian.

Wellington suppliers: mulch, compost etc

Hi folks. I'll be visiting Wellington next week to tackle a big gardening project and wonder if a knowledgable local could tell me a good source for buying compost, mulch, punga logs etc. Less than trailer-load quantities because of access/parking problems. I'm sure there's a better option than Mitre 10. Thank you heaps in anticipation

(#!*!?#% we just had 30 seconds of hail here in Whanganui! And me with the courtyard packed with hundreds of plants waiting for transport to Welly. In the middle of November. Unbelievable!)

Somebody was wondering if KUMERAHOU grows in the Wellington area...The answer is that it does NOT grow naturally there...I have seen it growing only as far south as my hometown of Te Aroha in the Eastern Waikato. But with saying that...I know of 3 growing in Pukekura park, New Plymouth that I show to my students when I facilitate Indigenous plant medicine seminars...BUT even here it doesn't like it very much because of the colder climate.

If it was to grow in Wellington it would have to be grown sheltered against the southerly and remember - Kumerahou only grows in POOR soil...it hates potting mix or 'good' soil!

Does anybody know the location of a kumarahou tree (aka Gumdigger's Soap in Wellington or up the coast?

Hi Lillian, great to see you and Charles this weekend in your utopia. I think it was Lindsay? who said she had a tamarillo plant for me. How can I get hold of her as we forgot to swop details. I look forward to more wintery gardening with you.

Hey Cesar! Thanks heaps for the spinach - found it as you had said, in the triangle beds. You can find us as "Kai O Te Aro" community gardens. We have three sites up Aro St - the first one is opposite Aro Park down a little alley on private land. The other two are on university land further up Aro St, one up some steps, and the other at the end (just before Holloway Rd) next to the hall. We rotate and garden wherever is most needed. You're welcome to join us at any point, even if you just want to come check it out! We meet 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month outside the community centre at 10am, all welcome. 
Thanks heaps for the spinach, it will grow well on our Steps garden on the bank, very much looking forward to it.

All the best, Lillian.
