Victory Community Garden – Nelson

Part of the Victory Community Centre, the Victory Garden is in the back corner of the Victory Primary School campus, near the Victory Village Learning Centre buildings.

There is a waharoa (Maori word for gateway) at the entrance carved by Mark Davis and a team of volunteers. The central garden is a mandala – a large circle with segments for different plantings. There is a shade house, sheltered and warm for seedlings, cooler and ventilated for plants before being planted out.

A small octagonal pergola is for sitting and eating. There are a range of composting systems on display – 3 bin system, worm farm (in a bath), rotating barrel, and various examples of mulching – cardboard, sawdust, and barrels for soaking comfrey, weeds, fish stock and other garden foods for building soil fertility.

    Hi there, I'm trying to source Borage seedlings/plants. Do you have any for sale or know where I may get some from, a dozen or so would be great.

    Warm regards
    Rona

    We have 12 Bales of straw which would be suitable for compost or mulching. It has been left outside and is starting to rot at the bottom. Would this be of any use to you?

      Hi Alice
      I have never realised that Eco-find had a response section and so this message has been completely overlooked. SORRY.

      We would love to access straw bales in whatever condition.... still available??

      THANKS
