What's the Haps

Awakairangi Garden Blitz is a group based in the Hutt Valley where people come together to build vege gardens in their own and fellow community member’s back yards!

The group is open to anyone and everyone, from novices who have never picked up a shovel to experienced gardeners as well as people of all ages and levels of physical ability. The group is based on the principle of reciprocity: if you help out in at least two blitzes then you will be eligible to have a garden built at your place!

Awakairangi Garden Blitz is a group in which people get dirty, do physical activity, make gardens, socialise, have fun, share food and knowledge about growing food and improve their communities.
