Growing the Movement in Auckland
The Tomato Movement
From now till end of summer, Kai Auckland want to help people to grow, harvest and bottles tomatoes. Across Auckland people are raising tomato seedling to give away. Distribution points are being identified.
There will be plantings in community gardens and back yards, with bottling workshops also planned as a follow up in Autumn. Peasants NZ has opened a backyard in Sunnyvale (West Auckland) as a focal for growing seedlings. Contact Ross through Contact Us for dates and times to work in with that. If there is any way you want to be involved, we are just an email away.
Summer in the Square
Kai Auckland is excited to have the opportunity to be part of Summer in the Square, the summer festival at Aotea Square. From December through to February, there will be pallet gardens growing edibles in the square, and free Saturday morning gardening workshops. You can get involved by volunteering at the garden set-up and planting day (Saturday 3 December), putting your hand up to help look after the gardens over the summer, or suggesting someone who could present a gardening workshop. If you are interested in being involved, contact Emily — urbanpantry.
