We're thrilled to reveal dynamic new plans for Garden to Table at Wynyard Quarter, developed by our wonderful sponsors Opus International.
The plans show an elevated building design which will cleverly allow us to utilise space under the building.
The building includes several levels to create interesting spaces for learning, and an abundance of spaces to grow produce, for example the roof and balconies.
Two stories will include a purpose built kitchen classroom and dining area on level one and much needed home for the Garden to Table trust in offices on level two.
Not only will Garden to Table at Wynyard Quarter facilitate the GTT programme for up to 600 local school children a week, it will be used for innovative events, community classes and school holiday programmes based on edible education.
The development will include beehives, chickens, rain harvesting facilities, composting, worm farms, and of course a wide variety of edible plants - we even hope to have a windmill!
We're proud to be using the latest in sustainable materials and building techniques, including solar power, and hope the finished development will be carbon zero.
Completion of Garden to Table at Wynyard Quarter requires on going funding and support. If you'd like to help, contact Garden to Table chairperson Catherine Bell.
