workerBe oasis gained the licence to use council owned land on Hospital road, Newtown, in October 2015. It is now transformed from its former empty and sad lawn to an abundant vegetable garden, with more infrastructure set up every day!
Over 60 volunteers have collaborated on the transformation of the site, with materials being offered by Wellington City Council, Wellington Zoo, Kennards Hire Newtown and several individuals. Anyone can come and volunteer on Saturdays from 11 am to 1 pm.
At the workerBe Oasis we orient volunteers, run workshops and give continuous support to trainees, who can later take on future sites. For more information on what’s happening on the ground, ask your questions below or get in touch.
