Community Gardens Open Sundays

If you’ve ever wondered what happens at a community garden and how you can get involved, Open Sundays are your chance to find out more.

Community gardens are the hidden gems of our city.

From lush pocket gardens to rambling urban oasis, you’ll find them tucked away behind bowling clubs on Mount Victoria and nestled between houses in the Brooklyn Hills.

They’re as varied as the people who tend them but are all great places to learn about growing local kai, to connect with others, or take some time out.

Open Sundays – April 2024

Each Sunday in April, community gardens in a different area of the city will be hosting visitors. Dates and locations are below.

Come along to discover what thrives in Wellington’s unique climate, take part in a workshop, explore somewhere new, get your hands in the soil, find out how to join a garden, and more. Gardeners will be available throughout the day to answer your questions.

Why not make your Open Sundays outing a sustainable travel adventure with Pedal Ready? Cycle instructors will be leading free guided bike tours on 7 April (central) and 21 April (eastern). E-bikes are recommended (because Wellington has hills), but subsidised e-bike hire is available.

Car-pooling with friends and public transport are also smart and sustainable travel options. You can find public transport timetables and a helpful journey planner on the Metlink website.
