HNZC – Urban kai initiative

Jan 24, 2018 | News


The back lawn of Tracy Johnson’s state home has given way to neat rows of overturned soil in preparation for a new vegetable garden. She is the first person signed up to a programme which will have Housing New Zealand tenants growing vegetables in their backyards for themselves and others as part of the Urban Kai Network.

Run by the Common Unity Project, Urban Kai seeks to facilitate ‘intensive urban agriculture’ in the Hutt Valley. Growers keep a portion of what they produce in their ‘urban farms’ and the rest goes to feeding the community.
