Organic Market Garden
A collaboration between For the Love of Bees, Kai Auckland, Stonesoup Syndicate, Gecko Trust, and Phantom Billstickers. Supported by the City Rail Link.
AUCKLAND'S FIRST INNER CITY ORGANIC MARKET GARDEN & TEACHING HUB
The OMG aim is to break the myth that industrialised food production is the only way, through transforming the current Symonds Street Junction Community Garden into an abundant Organic Market Garden (OMG). Inspired by sustainability and wellness, the OMG will be a living example of the role of urban farming in achieving a sustainable and regenerative food system for Auckland. We wish to inspire local residents, businesses and communities in the uptown neighbourhood to learn new concepts and gain practical skills, on how to grow nutrient dense food by using organic and biodynamic principles, in an open access teaching hub.
Guided by the principles of Kaitiakitanga, the OMG will demonstrate a sustainable social enterprise model by providing a space of inspiration, healing and knowledge exchange in a hub of sustainable living practice.
The OMG is at 257 Symonds Street, Eden Terrace
