The autumn magazine covers the period from 1 April to 15 June and is full of information and news, events and exhibitions, as well as handy tips for Wellingtonians.

There’s a recycling guide for your fridge and updates on our brand-new playgrounds – Te Aro Mahana at Frank Kitts Park and a ‘bees and flora’ themed site at Botanic Garden ki Paekākā.

The cover art, a screen-print by local artist Carrie Carey, is a vibrant scene from our beloved ecosanctuary, Zealandia. 

The Zealandia team share ideas for encouraging native birds to your backyard, and learn about Wellington’s 25-plus community gardens, which are hosting ‘open days’ throughout April.

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.

Plus, meet Bart, our threatened plant species specialist, and get tips on how to safely forage for kai in a sustainable way.

As always, there’s details about funding opportunities, dates for upcoming Council meetings, and how you can reach your local ward Councillors and the Mayor.

Pick up a copy of Our Wellington – Tō Tātou Pōneke from the following Wellington City Council sites: Te Awe Library, Arapaki Service Centre, Waitohi Community Hub, Tawa Library, Newtown Library, Ākau Tangi Sports Centre, Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre, and the Wellington I-SITE on Wakefield Street.
