In 2016, our fruit tree guardian programme merged into Ngahere Kai, a joint programme between Hutt City Council and the CommonUnity Project Aotearoa.
Ngahere Kai looks after over 300 fruit trees distributed through our local parks through a network of experts and volunteers. It’s goal is to help people in our communities access fresh fruit in years to come.
As a tree guardian, you'll look after a fruit tree site near you, together with other volunteers to help share the job and guided by a local expert. You’ll receive regular updates on fruit tree care in your email inbox and also have the opportunity to attend our fruit tree workshops (on fruit tree planting, care and pruning) and meet other tree guardians.
The fruit tree guardian programme is a great opportunity to help contribute to a food resilient future for our city.
