*UPDATE* 13/05/20 The working bee …


In order to comply with the social distancing rules at level 2, the amount of volunteers who gather at our usual Sunday 2-4pm working bee will be limited to current members only.

WCC has advised us that:

People undertaking activities must be regular members of the group – no invitations to new members or new volunteers. Therefore, any proposed additional working bees are cancelled.

Notwithstanding, we don’t want any of the gardening enthusiasts to miss out, so as soon as this changes, we will let you know.

Please ask first ….

Please ask before taking produce from the gardens. We can be contacted at: info@ncg.org.nz

Some plants are specifically being grown to collect seeds for the next planting season.

Sadly, our only two caiguas (see photo below) and a yellow chili which still wasn’t ripe, have prematurely been picked.

Hopefully, whoever took them have saved the seeds and can return them to us.

Volunteer Activities

Sadly all volunteer activities on Wellington City Council land has to be put on hold at present.

Unfortunately, ceasing all volunteering includes: watering, weeding, gardening or any site maintenance at our community garden and nursery.

This is disappointing but understandable at a time when we have to put the health and wellbeing of ourselves and our communities first.

Stay safe.
