Vegetable gardens developed and maintained by local groups, often on land owned by councils, schools, marae or workplaces, are an important community asset.

These gardens can provide residents with the opportunity to access more fresh food, learn gardening skills and increase recreational activity. They also build community spirit, beautify open spaces and make unused spaces productive.
