Te Kawakawa Commons is a community garden and recreation area that 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.
Tasks vary at our monthly working bees but you can expect weeding, maintaining the vegetable garden, planting natives (winter only) and track construction. Gloves, tools and training provided. 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! Ask about our free transport options
