HUMMING GARDENS

We're partnering with Hummingbird Coffee to divert waste from landfill, strengthen the community garden network and enable community gardens & composting hubs to grow and flourish.

HUMMINGBIRD GARDEN GRANTS

Up to $500 is available for community gardens in the Auckland Region to invest into tools and infrastructure that will help keep the garden humming. These could include composting systems, tools, water tanks, sheds or raised garden beds.

Apply today and hear back within seven working days.

This fund supports gardens that benefit the community. Gardens on private property may not be eligible.

FREE MATERIALS FOR COMMUNITY GARDENING

Our Waste Project Assistants connect local cafes to their community garden. They also work with businesses to divert reusable resources for community use.

Useful resources for gardens include

  • coffee grounds
  • food scraps
  • dry leaves
  • coffee husks
  • sawdust
  • cardboard
  • shredded paper
  • straw

Check out some of the free resources that might help your community garden thrive at Adopt a Resource

If your cafe or business is interested in contributing resources to your local community garden, please email [email protected] or [email protected]

SUPPORTING WORKSHOPS

In collaboration with the Compost Collective, our Waste Project Assistants can also help arrange workshops that will educate and inspire locals to garden, compost and volunteer within their community.
