The Griffiths Gardens
The Griffiths Gardens is located at 42 Wellesley Street in the heart of Auckland’s central business district.
The garden functions as a Biology-First Teaching Hub, a place where everyone can learn how to turn Auckland into the safest city in the world for bees.
The garden is currently set up with planter boxes that are utilised during workshops and a tool shed to hold all equipment. The next addition to the site will be a plant nursery and an organic seed saving bank, both of which are currently being developed.
We invite the public to propose classes or events that make use of the site and the infrastructure that will help us create an enduring legacy for our city.
Griffiths Gardens can be located on our interactive map.
Lunchtime Learning is our weekly, 2 hour drop in class held every Thursday at Griffith Gardens from 12-2pm. You are invited to join us for as little as 10 minutes or the whole two hours.
Each week we explore one aspect of how the biological engine works by undertaking a hands on practical task that will help you in your garden.
These series of learning modules are designed to help you get your hands dirty and skill up so you can easily make the transition towards biological gardening over the next two years.
We cover topics like seed saving, seed sowing, foliar feeding plants, how to work with microorganisms and more. Biological Gardeners are a Bees Best Friend.
Look at what topics we will be covering in our next series of classes on our Facebook or our Events Page.
For those who cannot make our workshops we will be hosting all learning modules digitally - right here! Print off the teaching document we publish each week to stay up to date.
