Who we are

Auckland Teaching Gardens empowers and supports whanau and the community by providing access to low cost and nutritious home grown produce.

We provide an inclusive learning environment and aim to revitalise sustainable gardening practises for the benefit of current and future generations.

Auckland Teaching Gardens is a registered charitable trust, and we receive funding to do our amazing work through the Auckland Council and Local Boards.

Our gardens are open to anyone, from individuals to community groups, schools and organisations.

We work with schools across our sites to deliver personalised educational programmes, as well as partnering with government departments, NGO’s and other organisations. We help people who want to learn how to grow their own food, who want to maintain food security, and people looking to participate in local community initiatives.
