Organic Gardening Sessions

Please note: We are now taking volunteers in this team during the red & orange traffic light settings so please feel free to apply. All volunteers will now need to show their vaccine pass and provide their own mask. Take care and stay safe, The EcoMatters Team.

Get involved in seasonal activities for a deeper understanding of food production. Learning opportunities include seed sowing and collection; propagation; growing veges and herbs; managing a pollinator garden; and pruning an established food forest.

Learn how to build healthy, deep soil on tricky west Auckland clay!

Please remember the golden rule, if you are sick stay home.

We love our volunteers. If you fancy being part of an indispensable team of like-minded superheroes, get in touch! Our trusty tribe of volunteers come from all backgrounds and from all over the city (and the world!) and would love to meet you.

About EcoMatters: Based in Auckland in Aotearoa New Zealand, EcoMatters is an established charitable trust that was formed in 2002.

We also run workshops and provide opportunities for hands-on environmental action in Auckland.
