Waitaki Community Gardens sowing the seeds of community and sustainability

The Waitaki Community Gardens is at the heart of the small community of around 23,000 people, with a mission to share the joys of sustainable gardening with locals and touring visitors.

Supported by lottery funding from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board, the community garden hosts popular events and workshops throughout the year for those eager to learn about growing their own produce and reducing their environmental impact.

From humble beginnings over a decade ago, the garden has grown into a thriving hub of activity that attracts volunteers and students of all ages and backgrounds to work side by side, sharing knowledge and experiences and growing a sense of community alongside their lettuce and tomatoes.

Central to the garden's offerings is the ‘Seed to Table’ course - a hands-on permaculture workshop series designed to equip budding green-thumbs with essential skills for cultivating organic and productive gardens.
The garden not only brings the community together but also offers a refreshing antidote to today’s fast-paced, digital world.

With 100% of Lotto New Zealand profits being returned to funding Local Grants, every time you play a Lotto New Zealand game, you’re a Kiwi helping initiatives like the Waitaki Community Gardens foster a healthy, sustainable, and connected community.

⭐National Volunteer Week 2024: Whiria te tangata – weaving the people together ⭐

National Volunteer Week celebrates the collective contribution of the millions of volunteers who enrich Aotearoa New Zealand.

National Volunteer Week 2024 runs from June 16-22. This year’s theme is ‘Whiria te tangata – weaving the people together’. Volunteering weaves us together, strengthening the fabric of our community.

Volunteering is a powerful movement. When we volunteer our time, skills and energy, we show we care for our communities. This National Volunteer Week we celebrate the diversity of volunteers and volunteering, mahi aroha and social action in Aotearoa.

Volunteers are our companions, firefighters, sports team coaches, fierce advocates, environmental stewards, and so much more. In marae, mosques, churches, and communities across Aotearoa.

Volunteers are first responders in emergencies, clean-up our beaches and restore wild places, provide baking and meals for those in need, and support people who are having a hard time.

Now more than ever, as a volunteering community we commit to manaakitanga and whakawhanaungatanga. We commit to caring, and to building meaningful, enduring and inclusive relationships across our differences and to make space for diverse voices.

We can create a diverse, inclusive, and connected future. Join us this National Volunteer Week as we celebrate our collective impact.

"Sometimes we don’t eat for two or three days. My younger sister cries when she’s hungry. I feel very bad about that,” says 13-year-old Nyaduer (left). She’s struggling to fight hunger and keep her siblings alive.

Nyaduer is living without her mum or dad in a displacement camp in South Sudan. Without life’s basics. Without enough food. Right now, hunger is leaving kids too weak to run or play. Some don’t even have the energy to speak.
