Day 6! We started leg two, flying into wellington where we held our first workshop at the magical Innermost Gardens in Mt Victoria, a great, fun bunch, with some amazing ideas. We headed to Paekakariki for lunch and zoomed on to Palmerston North to meet with some local communities like Awesome Awapuni residents who put together the Raleigh street reserve, and the Roslyn REACH crew putting on wacky water days. Thanks so much to Julia from Palmerston North City Council for showing us these amazing neighbours!
