Community Gardener


Help maintain our beautiful place, growing great produce doesn't happen by itself here in Taupō. We have several beds which need attention and seedlings which need to be raised. We have a berry area which is always in need of care and an orchard at times gets neglected. The Gardens also have a hot house which could be used more productively. There are always areas which need attention. Don't forget there is the compost area which supplies our garden with an invaluable resource to make our veggies great. Any time you can help us will be appreciated and you end up with some of the produce yourself.
