A community-led project is underway to develop a showcase community garden that Carterton can be proud of – an artistic and functional food garden that not only provides food for the Carterton Food Bank and other community organisations, but also enables opportunities for valuable social connections and learning in the community.

Originally started by Carterton’s youth group Rangatahi to Rangatira (R2R),  the project is now being led in partnership with Wai Art, Resilient Carterton, Wairarapa Herb Society and Council.  As well as producing vegetables, fruits and herbs, the garden will be a beautiful space that fosters volunteering, networking and mentoring opportunities, and offers educational learning experiences across ages, sectors and cultures.

Anyone interested in being involved or helping at garden workings bees, can contact Anna-Marie Kingsley annakingsley@inspire.net.nz or Audrey Sebire audrey.sebire.nz@gmail.com or join the Facebook Group.
