How do they work?

They operate based on the 'honesty box' principle. When people join in the conversations and put energy into the garden projects, they reap benefits beyond the food itself.

Hi Alison - I suggest you rock up, and see what needs doing. I'm not sure what schedule people are working on, but if you turn up a few times, you'll meet some people who can advise you.

Hello Everyone. I have just moved to the island and would love to get involved with the community gardens. I live in Ostend. What do I need to do? Look forward to hearing from you. Alison

Hello everyone. I am putting some information together for the public and would like to list all the Community Gardens in the Auckland area with links to their websites. The information will be on the EcoMatters Environment Trust website. Do any one the Waiheke community gardens have websites? If not that is fine because I already listed ooooby. Thanks!

*** Blackpool Community Garden ***
Anyone interseted in helping with this in the next few days? There were many people involved in the development and planting of the garden, are you still keen to assist and to use some of the produce?

I just want to see who and how many reply, and see if there are people in the Blackpool area here... I have just realised that many members of Ooooby probably do not know this group is here.... like me, I just found it and missed the session on the 2nd of Feb.

Give this a few days and we will get some more content, invite some people to join this group and add some new pictures. This group was setup in response to a suggestion from Christy - thanks for the prompt.

I'm liking this. We need to get Prashanti and Paul on here.
