We are a friendly group of gardeners who meet twice a month at Innermost Gardens in Mount Victoria.
We have garden bees on the first and third Sunday of the month. The garden days help maintain and develop our orchard and shared beds, and provide a great opportunity to share gardening knowledge.
Our vision is one where birds and other native wildlife flourish, and everyone works together to support our natural heritage.

Project Twin Streams is a large-scale environmental restoration project working to improve water quality in Waitakere streams by revegetating 56 kms of streambanks with native trees and shrubs, and purchasing properties within the flood plain for removal. This stabilises the banks from erosion, creates a cool, shaded environment for ecology to thrive and filters toxins entering the streams.
