Wellington's community gardens

Find your local community garden.

Six people gathered in a green space, gardening.

There are community gardens all over Wellington. They are fantastic places to connect with the local community while surrounding yourself with nature – and to learn more about gardens and growing.

If you need gardening advice or you’re interested in getting involved with a community garden, use the 'Find my local community garden' map or the list below to find your local one.

You can also learn more about The Community Gardens Network by emailing citycommunities@wcc.govt.nz. The Community Gardens Network is run by Wellington City Council and meets four times a year to network, exchange tips and allocate funding.
