Community garden workers.

Community gardens - like this one in Newlands - are among the projects that can receive Council funding.


The types of activities we’ll consider include those under the Our Living City fund – community conservation projects and community gardens.

If it’s a local arts or community preparedness project, the Arts and Culture or Social and Recreation funds could help you get your project up and running.

You can also put in a proposal for public art activity in Wellington through the Public Art Fund. Projects can involve art or design for urban public spaces, including buildings, streets or parks, and artworks or activities such as sculpture, street-art, murals, performance or installations.
