Te Kawakawa Commons is a community run conservation effort on a small piece of land in Melrose behind Lyall Bay. This community garden and recreation area has been created by a committed community group to provide a sanctuary for local people and wildlife alike. Through the establishment of vegetable gardens for public use, the planting of native vegetation to encourage wildlife, and the building of a network of short tracks, the area has been transformed from a scrubby wasteland into a valuable community resource.
On this day we'll lend a hand with the plantings and maintenance at the commons. If you'd like to get involved in this exciting initiative and check out a hidden gem in the Melrose hills then get in touch today!
