Celebrate Terra Madre Day

Slow Food celebrates Terra Madre Day

Ranui Community Gardens invites you to a celebration at the gardens on Saturday the 5th December from 11am to 2pm at 22 Marinich Drive, Ranui celebrating the wonderful diversity of our community, the locally grown vegetables in our garden, and a year full of achievements:
the wonderful perimeter fence
the planting of flax and the tropical garden
the building of a community plot and the local growers
Slow Food Waitakere invites you to celebrate Terra Madre Day with us at the garden and take a look at our Slow Food Kitchen garden, the work of the children in the first Slow Food Class and to help us plant seedlings of food plants to grow up the new perimeter fence and community plots outside the garden. There may even be a chance of getting some fresh veges.

Meet us there - just look for the red snail in the first plot on the left as you go into the garden.
