Winter is comming

Grow Wanaka is our district’s community garden – and more – teaching folk how to grow food in the dry and the cold.

The garden and the people who volunteer to create and manage it are significant assets for our community – get to the Outlet and have a look for yourself.

This week the MenShed team have been racing to complete a small relocatable shed to house tools and provide shelter for the volunteers working over winter.

A second project involves the creation of new accommodation for the gardens Tiger Worms.

The Worms play a key role in recycling organic material and the creation of great compost. A great example of a circular system with benefits all round.

Winter is coming and again we are racing to get the new homes in place before the severe frosts and cool temperatures are with us.
