Autumn edition

Everything you need to know about life in the capital this season is in the autumn issue of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke, which covers the period from 1 April to 15 June.

The autumn edition is full of information and news, ways to engage with us, and a range of handy tips for Wellingtonians, including a recycling guide for your fridge.

This issue has fun foraging-themed play ideas for children, updates on our playground upgrades, and tips for encouraging native birds to your backyard. Learn about Wellington’s 25-plus community gardens tucked away in unexpected places.

This issue has details on how you can have your say on the future of our city with our Long-term Plan, which will set out the Council’s priorities for the next decade. We also have an update on how Thorndon Quay is being transformed to provide a range of safe, reliable travel options and create attractive spaces for all.

Meet Bart, our threatened plant species specialist, and get tips on how to safely forage for kai without putting added pressures on our reserves and forest ecosystems. Plus, find details about dozens of exciting events and exhibitions, funding opportunities, dates for upcoming Council meetings, and how you can reach your local ward Councillors and Mayor.
