Te Ngaki o Waiutuutu was originally named Okeover Community Garden, after the Okeover Stream. In 2018, Ngai Tahu gifted the name Te Ngaki o Waiutuutu (Waiutuutu Community Garden) in recognition of the stream's original name.All interested people can come along and help out in the garden, learn new skills and meet new people. The entrance to Waiutuutu Community Garden entrance is via the walking path from Engineering Road beside Waiutuutu/Okeover Stream.
Waiutuutu Community Garden utilises permaculture and organic growing methods. This means food production in the garden is becoming more sustainable – no pesticides or chemical fertilisers are used, and there is an emphasis on creating a self-supporting ecosystem and using natural processes. This produces healthier food and is better for the environment.
