About Waiutuutu Community Garden

Community garden

Te Ngaki o Waiutuutu (Waiutuutu Community Garden) was established in 2002 as an informal recreation and learning space for students, staff and anyone else associated with the University. It 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 Okeover Stream. Follow the sign for 'Cleaning Services'.

Waiutuutu Community Garden has a cob oven! The oven is fired up for special occasions. If you would like to use the oven for a special event please contact the Sustainability Office. Using the oven is both an art and a science - see the Cob oven instructions to find out how.
