Ngahere Kai

Ngahere Kai (food forest) is a collaboration between Common Unity and Hutt City Council as we share our vision of making locally grown food available to Lower Hutt families for years to come.

A network of expert and volunteer fruit tree guardians look after over 300 fruit trees distributed through our local parks. The guardians help care for the fruit trees during their early years. Ngahere kai will continue to develop these sites and create others to increase local food production and help contribute to an abundant and food resilient future for our city.

If you want to learn more about growing fruit trees or help care for some of ours, please join us! Together we grow.
