BHU Community Garden

The BHU Community Garden is part of a growing network of community gardens throughout New Zealand. It was established by the BHU and Lincoln Envirotown Trusts in 2008.

The Community Garden is located on the certified organic farm at the BHU, Lincoln University. The Garden consists of community plots for the sharing of produce, and individual plots maintained by the community garden members.

The Community Garden aims to encourage members of the community to pursue their aspirations to grow their own organic food on a certified organic farm in a supportive environment of like-minded gardeners.

Visitors welcome

Visitors, both groups and individuals, are welcome to visit the garden during business hours. Please contact Sarah Tritt, Community Garden Coordinator, if you are interested in joining or opportunities for hands-on involvement.
