About the Hidden Gardens
These are gardens designed by our horticultural apprentice gardeners in the summer and hidden in secret locations around Wellington. We ran the Hidden Gardens challenge to find these gardens where you can vote for your favourite garden and go in the draw to win a prize.
Apprentice training scheme
Council has a great horticultural apprentice training scheme with graduates’ now working throughout the ranks.
We wanted to celebrate them with a project that would brighten up unexpected parts of Wellington and give our participating apprentices to further develop the skills they’ve learnt.
