Urban Kai Farms

Join Urban Kai Farms for our weekly Saturday morning farming group. We meet at The ReMakery (310 Waiwhetu Road, Fairfield, Lower Hutt), departing at 10am for one of our nearby farms. 

The activities vary depending on the seasons, but we firmly believe farming is not a back-breaking activity. Come learn our clever methods for farming without digging! We turn organic materials otherwise destined for landfill into compost, and use chemical-free methods to attract beneficial insects and repel pests. Above all, we care for the soil to enhance the earth and provide the very best for our children – local, organically grown, nutrient-dense fruit and vegetables.

We return to The ReMakery around 12 noon to enjoy snacks and beverages from Koha Coffee.

If you want to put some of our fruit and veg on your dinner table, we sell our surplus food through The Common Grocer at low cost. All proceeds go back into the project so we can create more employment, grow more food and feed more children. Ambitiously, we aim to become completely self-funded by 2021. 

We welcome offers of sponsorship and donations of organic seeds, fertiliser and equipment.
