What is Grow Space?

Grow Space works to improve local food resilience and social equity by contributing to hyper-local, circular, regenerative systems in The Fringe Neighbourhood (Kingsland, Morningside, Eden Valley), Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa.

Our vision is for neighbourhoods to have collective wellness through access to healthy food, social connection and sustainable economic activity. To achieve our vision and mission, we run two initiatives in the grounds of Eden Park. Each initiative is designed around our three Pillars of Change:

· EARN: Run hyper-local, circular, regenerative enterprises to improve local food resilience
· LEARN: Grow capability to improve social equity and support regenerative food systems
· SHIFT: Influence attitudes and build community to deliver systems change so that we have an impact

Morningside Urban Market Garden (MUMG)
MUMG builds the skills of women (with a focus on migrant and refugee background women) to supply produce to local businesses and residents. Located on part of the carpark at Eden Park, our teaching garden is home to our Ako Ako programme which trains women to grow food for sale. Our Earn programme is based at both the teaching garden, and MUMG On Walters site. It provides spray free, hyper-local food to local cafes, restaurants and retail outlets and has created paid work for four people. A key aim is to scale the garden, so it generates profits to invest back into both Ako Ako and Grow Space overall.

Morningside Urban Compost Kitchen (MUCK)
MUCK is a neighbourhood scale compost hub to process waste as close to its source as possible and create a local living compost. Located alongside MUMG on Walters at Eden Park, MUCK offers a neighbourhood composting service to local businesses and residents, runs composting workshops and supplies the MUMG gardens with compost. Muck contributes to the MUMG Ako Ako programme and locals can also buy compost from MUCK. A key aim is to create a locally based, circular solution to processing our neighbourhood organic materials, and contribute to the development of regenerative neighbourhood food systems.
