There's a familiar face in this article by Jo McCarroll/NZ Gardener, find it on Stuff here. The article is about the amazing Auckland Mission HomeGround roof garden. What an extraordinary effort. Gardens4Health Manager, Richard Main (pictured) has been privileged to be involved since the start, working alongside engineers, architects and others and providing advice and support for the innovative rooftop garden. As Richard talks to Jo about in the article, he is now providing workshops for the residents for them to learn skills to "make it their own".
While the garden is a real achievement, it's well worth finding out more about Homeground and what they bring together to achieve better outcomes for some of the most vulnerable in our communities.
