This is the only community garden in Queenstown and was established in 2009. The Gardens have expanded over the years and there are now more than 40 individual plots with 60+ active gardeners. The Gardens provide an opportunity for those in apartments, renters and those without backyards to grow their own food on their own plots. The Gardens see themselves as connected to the Matakauri Wetlands and are happy to extend predator control within the goat/rabbit proof fenced area of the Gardens to increase habitat and safety for native bird species. The predator control work also supports the native plantings at the southern end of the Gardens.
